Life on the feudal manor was very different from today. The women would stay home with the children, do the house chores and feed the animals. She would also gather food from the garden. Their house, I'M NOT KIDDING, were made of dried cow dung and some hay. So it was very easy for robbers to dig. It was usually a one bedroom house. The kitchen the beds and everything else was in that room. It was very tiny. And stinky because the pigs and all the other animals would live inside that tiny space. Talk about gross. Also the men would work the fields and if you were old enough, we're not talking about 15 we're talking younger, then you'd go and help your father. If you were lucky enough to be born in a noble or monarch family you'd have much more luxuries and live in a great castle. The difference between serfs, the ones who worked the manor, and peasants was that serfs had to work all day and in exchange they'd receive protection. But they were not allowed to marry unless given permission by the lord of the manor. Unlike serfs peasants were free and weren't guaranteed protection or anything. So some of them would rent a little house on a manor. For a period of time. HARSH!

Answer 1

Manors were agricultural estates, given to lords, usually by a king, in exchange for military and political support. Labor was provided by peasants who lived on the manors, in exchange for a place to live, fields to farm, and protection. A manor had a manor house, where the lord might live, though many lords had more than one manor. A manor usually included a small community, at least a hamlet, but more often a village, where the peasants and other laborers lived. If there was a village, the village had a church. There was usually a bakery, or at least someone, such as a miller, who baked bread. In addition, there could be other craftsmen on a manor, such as spinsters, weavers, potters, carpenters, and so on.

A permanent market place was the distinguishing feature of a town. A manor never or nearly never had a permanent market.

It was a piece of land owned by the rich that was a important detail in feudalism. It generally had a castle or a big house, a few houses for the peasants, 3 fields, a source of water, and a mill.

The manors of the manorial system were intended to be as self sufficient as possible. With the passage of time, people wanted more and more things the system could not produce locally, so they became less self sufficient.
