While an increase in those of mixed parentage does not necessarily entail an increase in mixed cohabiting or marital relationships, analyses done on the Labour Force Survey indicate that such relationships are increasing (Owen, 1993). There are no published tables in the Census on the ethnic groups of couples but, using the Census Sample of Anonymised Records (which records basic demographic data from a sample of those enumerated in 1991), it becomes clear that mixed relationships are proportionally more common among black and Asian people than among white people.

We know that some British people educated and freed their slaves, and left them money in their wills; others subscribed to the rescue of slaves from their owners, and to the legal costs of defending slaves in court. The London ‘mob’ was notorious for concealing runaway slaves, and black people became leaders of sectors of the radical working-class movement. Some English people, such as Granville Sharp, worked tirelessly to help individual slaves, and for the abolition of slavery. Many English women had black husbands and lovers.

From the combined Labour Force Survey of 1992 to 1995, Berthoud argues that increases in mixed parentage amongst British born people of Caribbean origin will mean an increase in the number of people who have some Caribbean background, and a reduction in the number who have two parents of Caribbean background. His analyses indicate that half of the British-born men of Caribbean origin and one third of the British-born women who are married or cohabiting are living with a white partner. The rate of mixed partnership is increasing more rapidly for men of African Caribbean origin than for women (Berthoud, 2001).
