How would you address someone in Medieval England?
I mean in the way of Miss, Mr, Mrs or Ms, and from one lower-class person to another. Or did they not use titles such as these in those days? Also, if it's not actually known how the lower-classes referred to each other back then - as those who were literate were more of a minority, so not much might have been recorded - then please answer to say as much. Anything would be helpful! Thanks in advance, -Charlie :-)

It would be Master or Mistress, from where our Mr., Mrs., and Miss derives. Another less common form of address was Goodman or Goodwife. When I was young ( many, many years ago ) in the late 50's early 60's young boys were referred to as Master, usually on letters.
