This chapter discusses the sudden destruction of the yeoman farms during the eighteenth century. The chapter starts off with a review of the evidence for the end of peasant proprietorship and the concentration of land in large farms, which is then followed by an explanation of these changes. The chapter also presents an analysis of the transition from yeoman to capitalist agriculture as it happened in the open fields.
