Tudor Poor Extra Slides

  1. 1. Activity: See if your table agrees with the divisions made below: <ul><li>OPINIONS ABOUT POVERTY: </li></ul><ul><li>All beggars are criminals and they commit most of the murders and thefts. </li></ul><ul><li>Beggars should be sent back to where they came from. </li></ul><ul><li>Vagabonds should be punished severely. </li></ul><ul><li>Beggars are to lazy to get a job. </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>REAL CAUSES OF POVERTY </li></ul><ul><li>Sheep farming had replaced the growing of crops and this required less farm workers. </li></ul><ul><li>Henry VIII shut down all the monasteries. </li></ul><ul><li>Unemployment increased because of the population doubling in size. </li></ul><ul><li>People had to travel to look for work at different times of the year. </li></ul><ul><li>There were no welfare payments for the old, sick, disabled or unemployed. </li></ul><ul><li>Food became very expensive due to bad harvests. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>GOVERNMENT ACTION TO DETER VAGABONDS/ BEGGING </li></ul><ul><li>Vagabonds could have a large hole bored in their ear (1572 Act). </li></ul><ul><li>Beadles should be appointed to expel vagabonds from parishes. </li></ul><ul><li>Vagabonds could be branded with a “V” (1547 Act). </li></ul><ul><li>Vagabonds could be whipped all the way back to the parish they came from (1531 Act). </li></ul><ul><li>Healthy poor found begging 3 times could be executed. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>GOVERNMENT ACTION TO HELP BEGGARS </li></ul><ul><li>Parishes must look after their own poor and set up workhouses for the able-bodied poor to work in.work in (1601 Act). </li></ul>You will notice that this last box is far smaller than the previous one. What does this say about the Tudor government’s attitude to beggars and the poor?
