Question from Jessa - Family politics in early modern Europe

Can anyone recommend any good sources for learning more about family politics / the way the family functioned in private vs. public in early modern Europe? Although I am mainly interested in English families, those from other countries would be useful as well (maybe French and Italian?). Thank you!

You may be interested in my doctoral thesis/dissertation which was on kinship networks and politics. It focused primarily on public politics not internal family politics.

You can download the pdf from the University of Nottingham eTheses site.
Here's the link:
