Life on the Manor
By: Emma Cundiff
About their life
When a serf died the lord would take there stuff and the widow and children would have to go survive on their own. When the surfs got sick the church would take care of them but nobody else would. The animals would be in a different part of the house. The serfs wouldn't live till past the age of 45 and they could not marry without the lord of the manor's permission.
The serfs or peasants would use a wheeled plow and it made it easier for farmers to work the ground. The land was divided in strips to each serf or peasant. Once the crops were harvested the land would be for cattle grazing.
