Abstract

The article provides an overview of the wide range of the Anglo-Saxon and Latin terminology concerning the various ranks of the freedom and dependence of English peasantry in the late 9th — 11th centuries. Detailed analysis based on the studying of English law codes, land inventories and charters is intended to describe the main social categories and classes of the Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Norman peasantry. Revealing the level of wealth, legal and ethnic characteristics of particular groups of English manor of the 9th — 11th centuries, it depicts the progressive unification of social statuses and ranks at the turn of the 10th — 11th centuries and the division of farmers and land holders in England into the dependent and free peasantry in the second half of the 11th century.
