Everything that a man needed to keep himself alive on the trail, and then set up a camp at the goldfields, he either carried on his own back, or paid someone else to haul for him. In the early days of the gold rush, when there were few freight-hauling operations in the area, and even fewer good roads for them to use, packers charged $1 per pound of goods transported; a prohibitive cost for many. One of the men who came to the area in 1858, along with so many others in search of fortune, was a man named Jean Caux. Cataline died in October 1922, and is buried in the old Hazelton cemetery.

It inherited a British legal system that granted married men control over most family property and imposed few obligations on them toward their wives and children. Yet from the 1860s onward, lawmakers throughout the Anglo-American world, including legislators on the Pacific Coast, began to grant women and children new rights. Feminist scholars have long debated the reasons for these reforms. Why did male legislators choose to depart from patriarchal norms, enacting laws that eroded husbands’ control over property and increased their obligations?

Chris Clarkson examines three waves of property, inheritance, and maintenance law reform, arguing that each was related to a broader political vision intended to precipitate vast social and economic effects. About the Author(s) Notes. Home-Historic Photos.
