Abstract:Three distinct white landowning groups emerged in the Transvaal, each deriving its claim to their property from the state of the Sooth African Republic. Similarly, three distinct groups of tenants existed, each having its tenancy regulated in different ways by the state. The three landowning groups were: firstly, settler, generally Boer, households; secondly, absentee landowners whose holdings were often consolidated in land companies; and thirdly, land owned by Africans but controlled to a greater or lesser degree by missionaries. Sections: Boer households - The absentee landlord and the land company - Lands owned by missionaries - The 1887 Squatters Law - The gold mines and the improvement of their productivity - Peasant society in the Transvaal. Notes.
