"chlop panszczyzniany"


Explanation:
Please note that the above-noted term does not reflect the correct spelling, however the Polish characters are not available on this site. If you need the correct spelling, I can e-mail it directly to you.

As for "foldes", I am not familiar with such a term in the Polish language.

Good luck!

chlop panszczyzniany, also niewolnik


Explanation:
For the first term special characters are needed: crossed l, accented first n, accented last z. No special characters are needed for the second term. Niewolnik means serf in the old ages.
