A peasant is a farmer. Most peasants were poor, and most worked land owned by someone else, but not all. Poor peasants who worked the land of lords are most commonly referre…d to as serfs. Serfs did not pay rent, and were required to provide labor for the lord. They also were not free to move away from the manor on which they worked, though they were not slaves. They had some important rights that provided for their security, and they could not legally be forced to leave the manor unless they broke a law or failed to do their duties. Serfs were also called villeins. Certain serfs who had fewer rights were called cottagers or bordars, though the exact legal situation of bordars may not be entirely understood. Some medieval societies allowed slavery, but not all. Freemen worked land they rented, and they had contracts like leases. Yeomen were peasants who owned their own land. They did not owe duties to a lord, but had to be prepared for military service as archers (at least in England).
Peasants who owned land were called yeomen. Another word for a peasant who owned land was franklin. This was a usage in the Late Middle Ages, however, and the term originall…y simply meant freeman, or a peasant who was not a serf, regardless of whether he owned or rented the land. Another useful word to know is freeholder, who was a person who owned land, as opposed to a copyholder, who rented with a lease.

A manor is a castle village and land of a lord's estate.
None. They were tenant farmers on the land owned by the king and his nobles. Answer: This is true, the land a peasant worked on was actually owned by a lord and the peasant wo…uld therefore be required to give a portion of his harvest (about 20% I think) to this lord. In saying that, the amount of land a single peasant and his family would live on varied from as little as 5 acres to as much as 40 acres. I would estimate that most peasant families would have worked and lived on about 15-20 acres of land.
