Women worked in some capacity in nearly every profession. Often, they worked in support of their husband’s occupation or in a closely related craft. 10 Although not necessarily full members of the guild, these widows often appear in lists of names in craft ordinances. 12 It seems the widows who carried on their husband’s craft were more the exception than the rule. Women more commonly practiced trades separate from their husbands’ crafts, either as entrepreneurs, manufacturing and selling their own goods, or as wage laborers working for other craftsmen.

High mortality rates produced remarriages as well as orphans. What is more, household size generally depended on the number of servants, not sibling groups. It was very unusual for a married couple to house adult relatives, except occasionally for a single son. 124 Apprentices, too, lived in their masters’ households, and those masters were frequently someone other than their own father.
