William The Conqueror introduces the Doomesday Book, making it easier to tax the poor.
The Black Death obliterated most of the population, and thus drove wages up, Edward III however soon put a stop to this with the Ordinance of Labourers in 1349. The Parliament agreed with Edward and signed a cap of the maximum wage paid to peasants in the form of the Statute of Labourers.
The revolt started in 1381 when John Bampton, a tax collector, came to collect unpaid taxes.
