Land and Family
Univ of Hertfordshire Press, Oct 1, 2010 - Business & Economics - 192 pages
With a special emphasis on the exchange of land between medieval servile tenants--especially from the 13th century onward--this scholarly examination of the peasant land market of the Middle Ages explores the identification of peasant families with particular lands to which they had a hereditary right. Using this theme to explore village life and showing how peasants were affected by the changes over time and place, this study employs primary source material from the Winchester estates. Analyzing thousands of land exchanges and interactions from more than 50 different manors on Winchester, this volume reveals unparalleled opportunities for comparing regional and local differences of experience.
