The main occupation in England during the 1700's was farming but most farmers did not own their land - they were poor peasants who paid rent to land owners. Villages were connected by series of dirt roads that became impassible during the wet season. As a result, transportation was slow and trade beyond the village not easy. Most farmers never visited any place further than 25 miles from their birthplace, ever.
