    Pretty much the first. A villein was an early form of serf. His relationship to his lord was classically fuedal, in that the villein owed the lord labor, which might be rendered on the lord's land, as military service, or possibly as crops from the land he (the villein) farmed. The villein's relationship to the land was complicated: he did not precisely own it, because he could not sell it, nor leave it -- he was "bound" to the land he farmed. But on the other hand, he had a traditional right to it, and the lord was generally constrained not to sell the land without the villein in possession.
