  19. The lands cultivated in common by the townspeople under the early land system of New England. Common cultivation was at first upon a considerable scale, though varying for different towns. The commons sometimes included nearly all the improved lands of the town, being laid out by a committee of the general court. In other instances, they included smaller portions, in which, nevertheless, all the people were interested. Occasionally authority over such lands was given to the selectmen, or to the major body of the freemen. These commons were formed for the sake of convenience generally, but sometimes from lack of facility in fencing separately. The bounds of such lands were marked by their particular proprietors and scrupulously kept up. Generally, the " proprietors " were a distinct body from the town and kept separate records. The system was adopted from English villages. Dictionary of United States history
