Jim Hawkins is a young boy who lives at his parents’ inn, the Admiral Benbow. This isn't such bad life in eighteenth century England. Jim did various jobs relating to keeping the Inn running. He washed dishes, served food, cleaned rooms...When his father dies Jim does even more. Other jobs related to primarily cottage industries. There would be a shoe-maker, blacksmith, tailor....The houses, among the commoners, would have been wooden simple structures. They would have been quite rudimentary. . Most people would live at their place of business.
