My great-great-grandfather's will (made in 1858) says that his tenements should be sold and the proceeds disbursed among his children. What did tenements mean in 1858? Tenant farms, perhaps? That kind of makes sense. He's listed in the 1840 census of Sussex County with something like 73 people (seriously) in his household. Since the 1840 census doesn't list individual names, I can't know who all these people here, but the number exceeds every conceivable family member who might have been alive then. Any insight would be appreciated
