9 100 83 Noc=no occupation Sources: census of Helsinki, Finland 1900, original sheets; census of Moss, Norway 1900; census of Lichfield, Britain 1851. 10 Conclusion The aim of this paper has been to address the theory presented by David Reher of a Europe in the past, divided into a northern zone with loose or defective family ties, and a south with close kinship connections. The intention has been to present data showing that families in Northern Europe did practice family co-habitation and collaboration.

In Lichfield one third of the widows who lived with unmarried children also had a grandchild in the household. Of those living with kin only, more than half lived with sisters, and one in four with their parents. In Moss the widows living with kin only lived either with parents or siblings. In a couple of cases there were grandchildren in addition to unmarried children. In Helsinki, although only 4% of the widows lived with a married child, they lived more often with a daughter than with a son, some unmarried daughters also had illegitimate children.

In Moss, 16% of the widows lived with a married child, in Lichfield 17% but in Helsinki only 4%. Contrary to theories put forward about loneliness it would seem that living alone was not the norm. While more than 10% of the widows in Moss lived alone, in both Helsinki and Lichfield this was much rarer. 52 The numbers of single person households have been artificially inflated in censuses by using biological relationship as a household boundary. The levels of co-residence with kin were higher than the table indicates, as many widows lived both with children and relative often a mother or sister.
