Russian term or phrase: чиншевникъ
In an 1871 birth record from the town of Krasnosielc, Poland, the father's and both witnesses' title/occupation is listed as "чиншевникъ". There are Google matches to this word, but nothing I can find that provides a translation of the concept... Any suggestions?

free tenant farmer
Explanation:
I would agree with Tatiana on keeping the transliteration, but an explanation would be due in this case: a free tenant farmer bound to pay rent in cash
