CULTURE: CUSTOMS, ARTS, CRAFTS, AND ON BECOMING

History of yeoman, yeomen, yeomanry (one, some, all):

The yeoman distinction came to prominence at about 1300 CE. Yeoman was a small landed proprietor (family run farm) between the rank of peasant and gentleman. Agriculture, sustenance, meant, yeomen performed great and laborious service. Seen as independent, hardworking, honest, and virtuous.

In time yeomen took on more responsibilities at the county level – constables, sheriffs, mayors, tax collectors, administrators, wardens, etc. Henry VIII, when mentioning knights and squires, included yeomen. Clearly, an earned recognition.

The British colonisation of North America led many settlers to agriculture, to a social majority of yeomen (along with artisans).

After the American War of Independence, the rule of law and republicanism prevailed upon the USA. By 1840 yeoman fell out of use. And in Canada, much the same.

Our attraction for yeoman is his character: INDEPENDENT SPIRIT and SELF-RELIANCE. When you really were an independent spirit and exclusively self-reliant.

OUR YEOMEN ARE MADE:

Recruiting is continuous. First contact, by workshop. We gather for a round table chat. Here, we explain ourselves, our raison d’être, and describe opportunities afforded every member.

This is a two-way interactive conversation, to ensure everything is understood without fail. Those that desire to continue are tested in multiple ways. Why?

Sometimes you meet someone that knows everything. You like’m, a lot. Later you find they can’t walk and chew gum. Another is withdrawn, quiet. You don’t know what to make of’m. Meanwhile their hands are magical. Find the truth first. Find the fit. Fit–for–purpose. That’s what we do, in everything we do.

Our trials are specific and demanding. By these measures we have the means to hire the finest. Facts and values. We’re part of a community. Not Internet, real community. Idea being, we’re socialised, in companionship with others, for life. Like the historical yeomen, “we are making a difference”.

Training is ongoing. The objective is to develop teams and crews of informed individuals, a levelled playing field. Not hierarchies. Competence. Like yeomen, independent and contributing to the community The solution is knowledge, experience, wisdom. After all, information is the most important element in any human activity.
