Can anyone explain the role of a "squire" in the late 18th- early 19th centuries? My family history states that my gggg-grandfather served as a Justice of the Peace in Pennsylvania beginning in 1809,and was always referred to as "Squire Horner." What is the difference between this and the "country squire" that we read about in English literature?
