In the 1600's the England society was divided into three parts...

- The upper class

- The middle class

- The lower class

The upper class consisted of the kings, (and also the parliament) They had nice, big houses and expensive things. Lots off food and a lot of waste.

The middle class was made up of the farmers, they work long hours but make good pay. The live in houses and have their own things and a fair amount of food.

The lowest class consists of soldiers and sailors. They work hard but barely get paid. They live in small, dirty shelters with little space. They also do not have very much food.

I'm just learning this unit so these are pretty much all my notes on society in England in the 1600's... Hope that helps!
