Peasant , any member of a class of persons who till the soil as small landowners or as agricultural labourers. The term peasant originally referred to small-scale agriculturalists in Europe in historic times, but many other societies, both past and present, have had a peasant class.

The peasant economy generally has a relatively simple technology and a division of labour by age and sex. The basic unit of production is the family or household. One distinguishing characteristic of peasant agriculture is self-sufficiency. Peasant families consume a substantial part of what they produce, and, while some of their output may be sold in the market , their total production is generally not much larger than what is needed for the maintenance of the family. Both productivity per worker and yields per unit of land are low.

Peasants as a class have tended to disappear as a society industrializes. This is due to the mechanization of farming, the resulting consolidation of farming plots into larger units, and the accompanying emigration of rural dwellers to the cities and other sites of industrial employment.

In 1348 a plague known as the Black Death crossed from mainland Europe into England, rapidly killing an estimated 50 per cent of the population. [7] After an initial period of economic shock, England began to adapt to the changed economic situation. [8] The death rate among the peasantry meant that suddenly land was relatively plentiful and manpower in much shorter supply. [9] Labourers could charge more for their work and, in the consequent competition for labour, wages were driven sharply upwards. [10] In turn, the profits of landowners were eroded. [11] The trading, commercial and financial networks in the towns disintegrated. [12]

By the next day, the revolt was rapidly growing. [75] The villagers spread the news across the region, and John Geoffrey, a local bailiff, rode between Brentwood and Chelmsford , rallying support. [75] On 4 June, the rebels gathered at Bocking , where their future plans seem to have been discussed. [76] The Essex rebels, possibly a few thousand strong, advanced towards London, some probably travelling directly and others via Kent. [75] One group, under the leadership of John Wrawe , a former chaplain , marched north towards the neighbouring county of Suffolk, with the intention of raising a revolt there. [77]

Tyler and the Kentish men advanced to Canterbury , entering the walled city and castle without resistance on 10 June. [86] The rebels deposed the absent Archbishop of Canterbury, Sudbury, and made the cathedral monks swear loyalty to their cause. [87] They attacked properties in the city with links to the hated royal council, and searched the city for suspected enemies, dragging the suspects out of their houses and executing them. [88] The city gaol was opened and the prisoners freed. [89] Tyler then persuaded a few thousand of the rebels to leave Canterbury and advance with him on London the next morning. [90]

A peasant is a pre-industrial agricultural laborer or farmer , especially one living in the Middle Ages under feudalism and paying rent, tax, fees or services to a landlord. [1] [2] In Europe, peasants were divided into three classes according to their personal status: slave , serf , and free tenant. Peasants either hold title to land in fee simple , or hold land by any of several forms of land tenure , among them socage , quit-rent , leasehold , and copyhold . [3]

The word "peasant" is—and long has been—often used pejoratively to refer to poor or landless farmers and agricultural workers, especially in the poorer countries of the world in which the agricultural labor force makes up a large percentage of the population. The implication of the term is that the "peasant" is uneducated, ignorant, and unfamiliar with the more sophisticated mannerisms of the urban population.

The word peasantry is also commonly used in a non-pejorative sense as a collective noun for the rural population in the poor and under-developed countries of the world.
