The Gentry Class of the Victorian Era was the upper class. The people in the gentry were usually part of the royal family, lords temporal, and the ecclesiastical (part of the church); the Queen was at the top. Most of the people in the House of Commons (the lower house of parliament) were of the genrty, but all of the people in the House of Lords (upper house of the parliament) were of the Gentry. They lived lives of ease and lavish activities like parties and dancing were usual pastimes the Gentry enjoyed.
