A serf, vassal, who in the olden times occupied a position between the timáwà and the ulípon. The class of the tumarámpok consisted chiefly of farmers, skilled workmen, merchants, etc. and made up the bulk of the population. (see kasimánwa, banwahánon).



Originally a freeman, a privileged citizen who was not subject to taxation, but was liable to help his chief (dátò) in case of national defense, etc. A "timáwa" was usually in charge of a "barangáy". At present "timáwà" very often means: the ordinary, respectable, common citizen, the common run of people, the (unimportant) members of a community; to free, set free, liberate. (see kasimánwa, banwahánon, luás, dátò-chief, chieftain, headman; ulípon-slave; tumarámpok-serf (farmer) that in former times held a middle position between the timáwà and the ulípon).
