Many people were finding different roles and responsibilities within society, with the growth of English common law giving people greater access to the alw and the "commons" starting to have a place in parliament during Edward I's time.After many years of growth and gradual change, there was one seismic event which changed British society dramatically.
Stuart society ended with the Glorious Revolution, perhaps not all that glorious, but it did show that the power of the king had not recovered from limitations it suffered in the civil war and was still under obligation to the state.
It can even be argued that these changes eclipsed the amssive shifts in society during the 20th century; certainly many of the developments of the 20th century have their roots in the 19th.

 H. P. Blavatsky and the Theosophical Movement - Historical Sketch
To attempt to chronicle the life story of H.P.B. and of the Society she founded in 1875 demands a rare combination of qualities: perception of values, devotion to the theosophic ideals, a sense of history and, above all, an identification with the ageless purpose behind the sending of a messenger.
Nonetheless, it is a product of exhaustive research into the early history and documents of the Society, hostile and friendly, so that the end result is a faithful portrait of the Founder and her life work.
The history of any movement, especially one of spiritual origin, is best authored by a protagonist, by one who is convinced of the worthiness of his theme.

 British Banking History Society
In the history of British banking the goldsmiths development of the promissory note and cheque, demand and time deposits, balance sheets and cash reserves provided the primitive but nevertheless essential elements of a modern banking system.
The second half of the nineteenth century was an age of British industrial and commercial supremacy, which called for an expansion of the services provided by the established banks.
