Excerpt from English Towns and Gilds

An English city or borough,l in the early Middle Ages, is to be looked upon, in the greater number of cases, simply as a manor or group of adjacent manors, where facilities for trade or handicraft have led to a larger and more concentrated population than could have subsisted merely on the agriculture of the rural commun ity. In each Of these towns local customs grew up, just as the custom Of the manor existed in each village in the Open country but more highly developed, as a consequence of the closer population, mercantile occupation, and more active life of the townspeople.
