Commercialization and Estate Management

Commercialization and Estate Management

(p.100) 6 Commercialization and Estate Management
The Foundations of Gentry Life

Peter Coss (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the degree to which gentry estates were commercially orientated. It shows that consumption needs were of vital importance, but landowners in general, or at least their officials, required a degree of commercial sense if manors were to be run successfully. Although the search for agrarian capitalism in this period has tended to muddy the waters and there was no new spirit of enterprise enveloping the smaller landowners, it remains likely that some of the gentry were interested in estate management and even in farming techniques.
