The present study investigates some aspects of the transformation of the late estate society in the Hungarian Kingdom from a micro historical perspective. The local conflicts around the 1842 muster of the burghers’ guard in the free royal town Košice appertained to the burghers’ duties in general: their mandatory service in the guard and their behaviour towards the council. The analysis of these events reveals how transforming social practices clash with the social order solidified by old customs and law. In general, this conflict sheds light on the changes of the contemporary conception as well as the social transformation of burghership as a category of the estate society right before the outbreak of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848.
