This chapter discusses the second kind of evidence for the importance of enclosures. The first evidence, which was discussed in the previous chapters, was the observation that land use changed after enclosure and that the enclosed farmers were more likely to adopt those improved methods than the open field farmers. The second evidence that is discussed in this chapter is the increase in rent that usually followed enclosures.

Keywords:   evidence, importance of enclosures, land use, enclosure, open field farmers, enclosed farmers, increase in rent
