Tacksman

Postby Wim-Jaap » Sat Oct 13, 2007 8:48 am

Hello,

Could anyone tell me more about the daily life of a tacksman?
what are their daily activities, what are possible jobs?

Also the wife of a tacksman, what do they do... simple housewife or seamstress or something?

I know one of them is collecting rent for the land they rent out, which they themselve have rented from a landlord.
The rent they collect is more then they have to pay, they live of the profit.
Some of them farm on their own piece of land.
But I want to go in deeper to find some more about what they do and how they spend their days.

I would like to develop my persona some more.

I already googled, but the info you get is what a tacksman is and not what he does all day.

Hi
I don't suppose you are coming over for either of the two re-enactment markets? If you are I could give you a half hour lecture on life in the Highlands ( for the '45).
Or you could give me a call if you still have my number (PM me if you haven't)
