Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Excerpt from Exploits and Anecdotes of the Most Remarkable Gypsies in the Southern Counties of Scotland: Together With Traits of Their Origin, Character, and Manners The original edition of this little volume, one of Dr William Chambers' earliest literary efforts, has long been of interest to collectors of scarce books, and so keen has the competition for copies become, that in recent years the few that have appeared for sale have brought upwards of three pounds.

This book presents the untold stories of Gypsy and Traveller girls living in Scotland. Drawing on accounts of the girls’ lives and offering space for their voices to be heard, the author addresses contemporary and traditional stereotypes and racialised misconceptions of Gypsies and Travellers. Marcus explores how the stubborn persistence of these negative views appears to contribute to policies and practices of neglect, inertia or intervention that often aim to ‘civilise’ and further assimilate these communities into the mainstream settled population. It is against this backdrop that the book exposes the girls’ racialised and gendered experiences, which impact on their struggles as young people to realise their potential and future prospects. Their narratives reveal the strengths of a distinct community, and the complexity of their silence and agency within the patriarchal structures that pervade the private spaces of home and the public spaces of education. This study also invites the reader to reflect on how the experiences of Gypsy and Traveller girls compares with young women from other social backgrounds, and questions if there is more that binds us than divides us as women in the modern world. Gypsy and Traveller Girls will be of interest to students and scholars across a range of disciplines, including sociology, education, gender studies and social policy.

This study is the first attempt at a historical analysis of British Gypsy-travellers, revealing the distinctive way of life and economy of the group and the manner in which they remained apart from the major economic developments of the nineteenth century and clashed with structures and mores of the dominant host society. The outcome was a mixture of negotiation, incorporation, resistance, and conflict.

This pb book is about three little known chapters in Gypsy and Traditional Traveller history. At one time, there was confusion between Romany Gypsies and 'Counterfeit Egyptians' but some old documents now shed new light on this. For about 200 years, Britain's Traditional Travellers - Romanies, irish Travellers and Scottish Travellers - were rounded up and taken to Barbados where they were sold as slaves, predating and overlapping the African slavery. Faced with that prospect or being hanged only for being a Gypsy, many went into hiding and found themselves confused with fairies!

Banishing troublesome and deviant people from society was common in the early modern period. Many European countries removed their paupers, convicted criminals, rebels and religious dissidents to remote communities or to their colonies where they could be simultaneously punished and, perhaps, contained and reformed. Under British rule, poor Irish, Scottish Jacobites, English criminals, Quakers, gypsies, Native Americans, the Acadian French in Canada, rebellious African slaves, or vulnerable minorities like the Jews of St. Eustatius, were among those expelled and banished to another place. This book explores the legal and political development of this forced migration, focusing on the British Atlantic world between 1600 and 1800. The territories under British rule were not uniform in their policies, and not all practices were driven by instructions from London, or based on a clear legal framework. Using case studies of legal and political strategies from the Atlantic world, and drawing on accounts of collective experiences and individual narratives, the authors explore why victims were chosen for banishment, how they were transported and the impact on their lives. The different contexts of such banishment – internal colonialism ethnic and religious prejudice, suppression of religious or political dissent, or the savageries of war in Europe or the colonies – are examined to establish to what extent displacement, exile and removal were fundamental to the early British Empire.
