  • The Effect of the Black Death
  • Although the Black Death killed many people, at least there are some benefits!
  • I agree, we get more land and higher wages!!!
  • The Statue of Labourers
  • Any free villeins had to return to their lords.
  • Anyone under the age of 60 must work.
  • I declare the Statue of Labourers!
  • Wages should be reduced again.
  • Peasants Demand for Better Rights
  • We need better rights!
  • He isn't allowing our freedom!
  • After the black death, poor peasants and villeins were initially happy as they were able to receive larger plots of land, for growing crops, and they were able to earn a higher wage-making them richer!
  • Another Law is Put in Place
  • In 1351, the King Edward III passed on a law, The Statue of Labourers, restricting peasants' and villeins rights. This law had meant that anyone under the age of 60 must work for the lords, wages must be reduced back to its original amount and any villain who had became 'free' had to return to their lords again.
  • A Priest called John Ball
  • You need to stand up to your leaders!
  • After the King introduced the new law, the peasants demanded for better rights, such as getting more pay.
  • Richard III's poll taxes
  • In 1363, the king introduced another law called the Sumptuary Law, restricting peasants from wearing fashionable clothes made from fur or silk as it made them look like nobles.
  • From now on, no peasant shall dress in fashionable clothes.
  • John Ball was a priest, born in St Albans. He had been excommunicated from the church for several accounts and was imprisoned. In 1366 it became illegal for him to speak but this didn't stop him. He told the peasants to stand up to their leaders.
  • In 1377, Richard introduced a new poll tax. This meant that every aged 14 and over had to pay 4 pence. He did the same in 1379. For the 3rd poll tax, the King increased the amount of tax to 12-15 pence, depending on your wealth.
  • Everyone aged 14 and over shall pay a poll tax.
