Do any of you know a website, where I could find out when tenants were eliminated, or have they been?
Nora, I'm not at all sure what you mean by this last question.
As far as I am aware, a tenant is someone who rents a house or land from another person, and the other person is the landlord. I don't think the definition has changed over the centuries, and I can assure you that the landlord/tenant system is alive and kicking in Britain today. I don't see what it has to do with your Lord.
There were some periods in history when there was mass-eviction of tenant farmers for land clearances, because of famine, mass destruction due to wars,etc, but these things are very specific to time and place, and what happened in one county didn't necessarily happen in the next . If you need to be more specific than this, maybe we had better do this by e-mail.
