What was society like in England during the early 1600s?
In the 1600's the England society was divided into three
- 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!
