Prior to the industrial revolution, when the economy was primarily, though not exclusively, dependent upon agriculture, the dominant mode of production was feudalism. This gave rise to social relations in which agricultural labourers or peasants were tied to, and economically dependent on, the landowning gentry and nobility (their lords and masters); for upon the feudal relationship between lord and servants depended the latter’s livelihoods and homes. From the mid-1700s, however, the enclosure movement, whereby land – including land previously regarded as ‘common’ land – was parcelled up and acquired by landlords, had the effect of forcing many farm labourers, many of whom had depended for their survival upon the old traditional rights to the common land, out of their agricultural settings and, for many, into the expanding new towns to become workers in the developing factory industries.
