But, among all the occupations we see carried on around us, there is not one
more needful than that of a peasant ; and the name, as well as the occupation, is
an honourable one. And "the English Peasant Girl " : — the words have a
pleasant, kindly sound. They lead us to think of the cottage homes, the beautiful
meadows, and shady lanes, and cheerful village greens, and many other happy
scenes in our native country, which those who live all their lives long in cities and
large towns ...

... which formed the heart of studies of large estate complexes that have
appeared frequently over the past fifty years. To this point apparently even market
studies are failing to challenge the traditional thesis. The liberating role of
markets in classical capitalist economic history does not seem to have come into
play for the medieval English peasant. Rather, as R.H. Britnell reports, the
currently accepted doctrine follows more along the lines of Marxism as described
by E.A. Kosmin- sky.7 ...

The 'Great Rumour' of 1377 and Peasant Ideology* ROSAMOND FAITH In the
west Berkshire village of Coleshill the harvest of 1377 was disrupted because 'all
the tenants who [should] work at harvest- time did not work on account of a great
rumour (prout magnum rumorem) among various other tenants'.1 It seems very
likely that this 'great rumour' was, or was connected with, a little-known peasant
movement involving at least forty villages in Wiltshire, Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex

The difliculty of finding abundant documents will always remain, for the English
peasant was not given to penmanship. But at least it has become possible to
sketch the outlines of peasant husbandry, and in so doing, to reveal much

in particular, ...

you see a picture of him, he is a long silly-looking-fellow, in a straw hat, a white
slop, and a pair of ankle-boots, with a bill in his hand — just as the London artist
sees him in the juxta-metropolitan districts — and that is the English Peasant.

THE FRIENDS OF THE PEASANT. “Go look through merrie England; Of all the
shires you there may see, Oh! the fairest is green Somerset, The flower of all the
west countrie!” Old Ballad. SoMERSETSHIRE is one of the largest counties in
England, comprising an area of 1,642 square miles, or to speak agriculturally,
1,050,880 acres; and it is a singular circumstance that, being naturally one of the
richest of the English counties, the status of its rural labourers should be so low.
