The Medieval Manor Questions
Transcript of The Medieval Manor Questions
Freeholders: A freeholder is not that much different from a serf except the freeholders actually owned the land they farmed, which they paid a yearly fee to the lord of the manor. Demesne: A demesne (pronounced “Di-mane”) is the land owned by the lord for his own use and profit, in the demesne there is gardens and orchards around the manor house and some strips of land in the manor fields.
Bailiffs: Most of the lords did their own work for their estates, but some had bailiffs. Bailiffs were the people that collected rent, supervised serfs, and the freeholders on the manor. A bailiff has a higher social ranking than serfs and freeholders. 3) As you might think the peasants owed the lord everything, the lord actually owed them things such as protection from harm, and land to farm to grow their crops. 4) Peasants were obligated to work a few times a week farming for the lord, pay their taxes and fees or a percentage of crops and also a peasant had to remain loyal and not leave the manor is he/she wanted to. 5) The 3 field crop rotation is when the manor has 3 fields, 2 planted and 1 fallow. The 3 field system is a technique the farmers came up with in the middle ages so they could have food all year round. For each field they grew cereal one year and nitrogen generating crop the second, in the third year, the field was left fallow; which means no crops were planted and weeds were ploughed under twice. This loosened the soil, controlled plant diseases and killed weeds. With 3 fields, the farmers could always have 2 fields producing crops while the third lay fallow, this helped them create a sustainable balance between maintaining the productivity of their fields and planting enough crops to feed the local population.
