Name OriginEdit

Beginning in the Middle Ages, a squire was the shield- or armour-bearer of a knight. At times, squires acted as a knight's errand runner or servant. Use of the term evolved over time. Initially, squires were a knight's trainees/apprentices. Later, a village leader or a lord of the manor might be called a squire, and still later, the term applied to key public figures such as justices of the peace or members of Parliament.

Squire is a shortened version of the word esquire, from the Old French escuier (modern French écuyer), itself derived from the Late Latin scutarius ("shield bearer"), in medieval or Old English a scutifer. The Classical Latin equivalent was armiger, "arms bearer".
