Life in the Towns

Town Houses

Buildings in Newcastle-u-Lyme

A butchers shop in Bridge Street

Houses were timber framed of two or three storeys.

To provide more space upstairs the upper storeys often projected over the lower storeys.

This made the streets very dark and crowded.

Most merchants and craftsmen lived and worked in the same building, the shop part of the building being open to the street.

A Pub in Lad’s Lane

Towns also had many inns, a market hall, a grammar school and a guildhall.

Some important buildings would be built of stone.

The Streets

1485-1603

Life in the Towns

Streets

There was no proper drainage in Tudor Towns.

Open sewers often ran down the middle of streets straight into rivers and wells.

All waste was thrown onto the streets.

Diseases spread very quickly.

slide12

1485-1603

Buildings

Bridge Street, Newcastle-u-Lyme

Most ordinary homes in Tudor times were half timbered.

They had wooden frames and the spaces between were filled with small sticks and wet clay called wattle and daub.

Daub is a mixture of clay, sand and dung that is smeared into and over the wattle to make the wall.

The daub was often painted with lime to make it look white.

The wooden timbers were coated with tar to stop them rotting.

Many Tudor houses had thatched roofs

Glass was expensive so windows were small.

slide13

1485-1603

1485-1603

Travel

The major land routes were based on the Roman roads.

They were difficult to keep in good repair.

Each parish or town was responsible for the upkeep of the roads.

Some didn’t do a good job.

Many were rutted and uncomfortable to travel on.

Without lighting they could be dangerous at night.

Many people didn’t travel at all.

slide14

1485-1603

Schools

Not many children went to school in Tudor times.

Those that did go were mainly the sons of wealthy families.

Girls were either kept at home by their parents to help with housework or sent out to work to bring money in for the family.

Many Tudor towns and villages had a parish school where the local vicar taught boys to read and write.

The boys practiced writing in ink by copying the alphabet and the Lord\'s Prayer.

There were few books, so pupils read from hornbooks instead.

It was usual for children to attend six days a week.

Teachers were very strict, often beating their pupils with birches if they misbehaved.

slide15

1485-1603

1485-1603

Life for the Poor

The poor were divided into three groups.

The first were called Helpless Poor.

These would include the old, the sick, the disabled and children.

The second group was called the Able Bodied Poor.

These were people who could work but also wanted to work.

The third group were known as Rogues and Vagabonds.

These were people who could work but preferred to beg or steal.

slide16

1485-1603

1485-1603

Punishment

People who committed crimes could be put in the stocks. They always stood where lots of people would pass and they would throw things at the criminals.

Most towns had a ducking chair . The chair was kept near a pond or river and was hung on a see-saw.

Other people could be burned at the stake.

Beggars were a big problem because people were afraid of them. If they became a nuisance they were dragged through the streets being whipped.

Games

  • The Tudor kings and queens encouraged archery .
  • People played other games like ours. Bowls was a favourite and some towns had bowling alleys
  • They used to play games like hockey the sticks were curved and the ball was wooden.
  • The favourite game was football . Any number could play and there was no referee. Villages challenged each other and nearly every match ended with cracked heads and other injuries.
  • Hunting, fishing, fencing and tennis were also played.
  • The tudors also liked to go to bull and bear baiting rings.

Mary Rose

Heading for action in 1545, Henry VIII\'s favourite warship sank in the Solent with up to 700 men on board.

In 1528 and again in 1536 the Mary Rose was rebuilt, having her weight increased from 500 to 700 tons and mounting 91 guns. The refits are thought to have added an extra deck, making her top-heavy and liable to roll in heavy seas.

In 1545, King Francis I of France launched an invasion of England

As the Mary Rose advanced to battle she capsized and sank with the loss of all but 35 of her crew. It is theorized that her undisciplined crew had neglected to close the lower gunports after firing at the galleys, so that when she heeled in the breeze she filled with water and turned over.
