Enclosure and the Yeoman

Robert C. Allen

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the ways the landlords' agricultural revolution helped increase inequality. Their agricultural revolution was conducted through the concentration of landownership, the enclosure movement, and the increase in farm size. The discussion also attempts to answer the question: Would it have been possible to avoid or mitigate those adverse effects while still realizing the growth in efficiency?

Keywords:   landlords, agricultural revolution, inequality, landownership, enclosure movement, increase in farm size, growth, efficiency
