Family Life: the role of men, women, and children By: Jason Doran & Clarissa Smith
The dresses that the boys wore were called doublets
The poor divided into three groups. The first group, the Helpless Poor included the old, sick, the disabled the children of Elizabethan England.
The children in this social class were given apprenticeships, often paid for the by church. Richer families did not bother to get apprenticeships
Boys were often apprenticed until they reached age 24. If girls were lucky enough to get and apprenticeship they would work with the mistress until age 21
The eldest would inherit everything. The families land and even the debts. Even if the oldest child is a girl, the boys would always inherit the land
If the family could afford it the children would go to school. The noble children were home schooled and got their own tutors
