Abstracts

In search of salt smugglers at the borders of Maine, Anjou and Brittany at the end of the 18th Century There have been several researches in the archives of lawsuits about salt smugglers, but none focused on individual cases of false workers in saltworks. However, it concerns here individuals likely to be met again in several trials in the registers of the penal colony in Brest or very localised archives, as it is the case on the border of Brittany. But the research of these very mobile individuals is particularly complex. However, the results we have got give interesting information concerning the personal itineraries of modest rural populations. They show individuals always on the verge of marginality, but benefitting from the endorsement of the rural society and thorougly united against the salt tax-collector agents.
