"Kisházas" is literally "with a small house". I could not find it in the dictionaries or encyclopedias, but all the uses of it that I did find seem to be some sort of farmer in the free-but-not-wealthy range. Hence my translation of "smallholder": a farmer who owns a small amount of land, perhaps just enough to support one family, but perhaps not. (Notice that Martin Sr. is identified as a smallholder in one place and as a carpenter in the other: clearly they farmed some land, but supplemented that with carpentry to make ends meet.)
