Joining the Customs Service

This chapter pursues dual aims of elucidating the Customs’s recruitment procedures and exploring the socioeconomic factors that influenced decisions to relocate overseas. Despite the enduring caricature of the upper-class Englishman as the quintessential colonist, the socioeconomic profile of Customs employees presented in this chapter demonstrates the diverse range of people for whom the empire world spoke of opportunity. Furthermore, this chapter shows how global networks of patronage, family, education and employment propelled the international migrations of employees of colonial institutions. This chapter finds that expatriates were not primarily motivated to seek work overseas because of a single-minded commitment to imperialism; rather, family links to empire, previous employment in the empire world, a desire for adventure and, importantly, the prospect of a reliable career were more significant factors.

Late twentieth-century British emigration and global identities – the end of the ‘British World’?

skilled international migration had ‘become a “normal” middle-class activity rather than something exclusively confined to an economic elite’, part of a wave of ‘middling transnationalism’ comprising more complex patterns of mobility. 7 Identities like that of the ‘world citizen’ are, perhaps, unsurprising consequences of such behaviour. Late twentieth century

During the Middle Ages much of the parish comprised the barony of Belhelvie and at one time belonged to King Eric II Magnusson of Norway, at least in terms of revenue from parish rents. Later Belhelvie was held by Alexander Stewart, Earl of Buchan, and was eventually granted to the lords of Glammis by the early modern period. In the mid-seventeenth century the recently created Earl of Panmure was given the land
