The resource shows the geographical mobility of the servants to rural towns such as Jorquera and Casas Ibáñez, in the current province of Albacete. During the years of the Cadastre of the Ensenada, the basic mobility was registered in servants coming from the region of the State of Jorquera, where both municipalities are located. In a radial fashion, the further away from the interior, the less strong the power of attraction; thus the province of Cuenca and the Kingdoms of Valencia and Murcia nourished this group in decreasing numbers. Finally, it was the northern areas of the peninsula that were the last to incorporate labour force to Jorquera and Casas Ibáñez. This general tendency of the population to move from north to south in search of work and new opportunities was, as the author points out, a constant during the Modern Age.
