   schema:description "Dr Blaikie has pioneered the application of family reconstitution to Scottish material. Hitherto neglected sources have been imaginatively combined to reconstruct the social world of Rothiemay, a farming parish where household relationships, welfare and religious treatments indicate bastardy to be closely accommodated to community norms. Deviance theories are thus inappropriate, while the Scottish case questions the received wisdom of English and European demography."@en ;
