Handbook of Texas Online: (1757 words)
Although statistics on farm tenure by race were not collected until 1900, fls comprised a much higher proportion of the total number of tenant farmers than their proportion of the population.
This led to a corresponding increase in the proportion of tenants.
In terms of the population as a whole, in 1930, nearly one quarter of all Texans lived on tenant farms.
Tenant farmer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (142 words)
A tenant farmer is one who resides on and farms land owned by a landlord.
In some systems, he could be evicted at whim (tenancy at will); in others, he signs a contract for a fixed number of years (tenancy for years or indenture).
Tenant farming is distinct from the serfdom of medieval Europe, where the land and the serfs were legally inseparable.
