  26. 27. Tudor Parliament <ul><li>In Tudor times most important decisions concerning government were made by the king or queen and a small group of advisers called the Privy Council. However, before these decisions became law, they had to be passed by Parliament. </li></ul><ul><li>Parliament was the House of Lords and the House of Commons . The House of Lords was made up of about sixty Bishops, Dukes, Earls and Barons. It was unusual for members of the House of Lords to criticise the king's policies. If they did so, they were in danger of being stripped of their titles. </li></ul><ul><li>Members of the House of Commons were more independent as they were sometimes elected by the people who lived in the area they represented. However, very few people had the vote and in many cases the largest landowner in the area decided who went to Parliament. </li></ul><ul><li>Henry VIII was in favour of holding regular Parliaments. When Henry was in conflict with the Pope in Rome, he claimed that the votes taken in Parliament showed he enjoyed the support of the English people. </li></ul><ul><li>When Mary Tudor became queen she tried very hard to make sure she had a pro-Catholic House of Commons . Mary sent out instructions to the sheriffs (they organised the elections) pointing out who she wanted to be elected. </li></ul><ul><li>Elizabeth held fewer Parliaments than her father. On average, she held a Parliament once every four years. Elizabeth made it clear that members of the House of Commons had complete freedom of speech. However, she believed that certain issues such as religion or foreign policy were best left to her and her Privy Council. </li></ul><ul><li>Elizabeth became angry when Parliament asked her to get married. In 1571 Elizabeth made a speech to Parliament in which she told them they had no right to discuss issues that directly affected her. </li></ul><ul><li>On thirty-six occasions Elizabeth vetoed laws passed by Parliament. For example, in 1585 Parliament passed a bill that banned hunting, cock-fighting and bear-baiting from taking place on Sunday. Elizabeth believed that people had the right to enjoy themselves on their one day of rest and refused to allow the bill to become law. </li></ul>

Enclosure Break Down of Feudalism Population Increase Tudor Govt Social Structure Difficulties in agriculture Difficulties in Industry
  31. 34. Economic Factors <ul><li>Demographic changes </li></ul><ul><li>developments and difficulties in agriculture </li></ul><ul><li>developments in industry </li></ul>
  32. 35. Demographic Changes - Population Increase and Impact <ul><li>Population increase 1500- 2.3m 1547 - 3 m </li></ul><ul><li>Increase in demand leading to increase in prices (inflation) </li></ul><ul><li>Lower wages and increased rents </li></ul><ul><li>Government problems- Malthusian crisis?, migration to cities/towns (reducing production and increasing inflation), vagrants and beggars (Parliament passed 3 vagrancy Acts during Henry VIII’s reign), poor harvests in 1544-5, 1549-51, 1554-6, 1586-7 </li></ul><ul><li>Conflict in agriculture between self-sufficient farming and commercial farming </li></ul><ul><li>Introduction of enclosure and governments ineffective attempts to resolve situation. </li></ul>
  33. 36. Developments and difficulties in agriculture <ul><li>Development of specialised farming e.g. Wiltshire - diary farming.However led to shortages of grain </li></ul><ul><li>Main shift towards sheep and cattle due to demand for wool and leather. A move away from grain production, due to profits available. Impact on feed growing population and inflation. </li></ul><ul><li>Fuels trend towards enclosure. Plenty of land e.g. available by purchase of monastic land. Due to the dissolution of the monasteries. </li></ul>
  34. 37. <ul><li>Enclosure seen by contemporaries as the cause of all the problems of agriculture, explain high grain prices, increased vagrancy and periodic food shortages. 1549 ‘throwing down of the hedges’ first acts of rebels. </li></ul><ul><li>However other factors such as population densities and bad weather leading to poor harvests should not be ignored. </li></ul>
  35. 38. Crisis? Factors that may suggest there was a crisis Population Increasing Pressure on Food Supplies Moves towards Enclosure Specialised farming Changes in economic climate e.g. Cloth Industry Inflation Lower wages Population did not starve Malthusian Crisis avoided Tudor dynastic survived Rebellion 1549
  36. 39. Developments and difficulties in industry <ul><li>Some historians argue the period saw a marked change from Subsistence economy to advanced industrial economy. </li></ul><ul><li>This however brought problems given the concentration of resources towards a particular type of agriculture. </li></ul><ul><li>As example Cloth Industry. </li></ul>
  37. 40. Background to a key industry Cloth Making Pre 1500 <ul><li>Towns centre of medieval industry controlled by craft guilds </li></ul><ul><li>Cloth making largest industry, most sold locally. Wool main export to Netherlands and Italy </li></ul><ul><li>End of 13th century merchants/industrials leaving due to restrictive guild regulations and high cost of urban overheads. </li></ul>
  38. 41. <ul><li>Result - increase in rural cloth industry using ‘putting out system’ - semi manufactured cloth finished in Netherlands. </li></ul><ul><li>Largely based in East Anglia and West Country. </li></ul><ul><li>Arable land becoming pasture (less food production). </li></ul><ul><li>Pre 1500 reduction in city/town populations and migration from countryside. </li></ul>
  39. 42. 16 th Century Situation <ul><li>Increased population in 16th Century </li></ul><ul><li>In cities the problem of feeding them, housing them or employing them </li></ul>
  40. 43. <ul><li>Countryside textile industry declines due to foreign competition </li></ul><ul><li>1520’s frequent slumps in demand increased unemployment - migration </li></ul><ul><li>1550 Antwerp Market began to decline </li></ul>
  41. 44. <ul><li>Widespread unemployment among English cloth workers </li></ul><ul><li>Increased migration to cities/towns </li></ul><ul><li>Urban problem of feeding and housing them. Unskilled, little investment in cities to create new jobs. </li></ul>
  42. 45. <ul><li>Countryside - Discontent because enclosure and increased rents. Increased unemployment due to cloth trade. </li></ul><ul><li>By mid-16th Century government threatened by rising discontent in both town and country. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore not surprising Somerset faced widespread popular risings in 1549 </li></ul>
  43. 46. Economic Factors Increased Population Malthusian Crisis Migration/Vagrancy Inflation Lower wages Higher Rents Agricultural Changes Specialise Farming Problems for grain production and distribution Movement towards enclosure Poor Harvests Moves towards industrial economy implications for food production and unemployment
  44. 47. Tudors 1485-1603 (Mid Tudor Crisis?) Henry VII Edward VI Henry VII Mary I Elizabeth I Background Political / Social / Economic Government Ineffectiveness Malthusian Crisis? Enclosure Break Down of Feudalism Population Increase Tudor Govt Social Structure Difficulties in agriculture Difficulties in Industry
