nCube definition


The exact meaning of the term 'able-bodied', as used in the Poor Law system, is a matter of some controversy but is generally understood to exclude the aged and infirm, and 'lunatics', but to include large numbers who were temporarily ill. The system's reports consistently divide those receiving relief into Men, Women and Children.
