Hello Vincent

From various readings and listenings (radio programmes) it seems
that Darwin remained intolerant in later life, taking harsh
action against any of his workmen with 'libertarian views'.
Darwin, as a landed 'gentleman' was part of the local

Simply firing workmen for their opinions doesn't sound too harsh
to our present-day ears but then it could mean temporary or even
permanent hunger for their families - the parish and the
squire's land holdings were virtual prisons for working people
then, and the landlords' 'bailiffs (thugs) did much dirty work
at the parish boundaries, including beatings and murders,
sometimes of whole families whose only crime was having a sick
breadwinner or otherwise incapacitated family members. Just to
save expense for the squire (and the church) the bailiffs would
push a family over into the next parish or, if opposed by other
bailiffs, just knock them on the head  and bury them there.

[Maybe read 'The Village Labourer 1760 - 1832' for details of
much legal-slavery and abuse by landholders, corrupt magistrates
and hanging judges. There's a copy at:

Apropos the above, a correlation was picked up by Jeremy Harte
in 'Haunted Roads', where he records many 'Boundary Hauntings'
and writes: "Boundaries are no longer common knowledge. I doubt
if the bus driver who stopped on Wool Bridge to let the phantom
coach go by, or the motorist who saw a white car skid off
Dancing Hill (Sherbourne) and vanish knew that they were on the
edge of medieval parishes." --Jeremy Harte, 'Haunted Roads', The
Ley Hunter No. 121 1994.

Just a thought.
