Agricultural Labourer & Farmworkers

aka "Ag Lab"

Most of us will have an ancestor who worked as an agricultural labourer at some point. In fact, the 1851 census records 1,460,896 people working as an “ag lab”, farm servant or shepherd – more than in any other field of employment. Only in 1871 did domestic service overtake it to the top spot.

Before the Industrial Revolution, in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, many of our forebears would have toiled in Britain’s fields.
