Squire

Squire
"This unique figure almost certainly represents a young squire. Originally a squire was an apprentic knight, but by the 14th century, the term 'esquire' (from Old French 'esquier' from the Latin 'scutarius': a shield- or 'scutum'-bearer) was the term used to denote a man of noble birth, one wealthier than a gentleman, but less than a lord.
