SQUIRES Family HistoryThis interesting name is of Norman origin, introduced into England after the Conquest of 1066 as a "status name", signifying a young man of good birth attendant on a knight, his shield-bearer. The derivation is from the Old French "escuyer" or "escuier", in Middle English "squyer", both ultimately from the Latin "scutanius", a derivative of "scutum", shield. By the 14th Century the term "squire" meant not only any young attendant or servant but had been generalised into referring to social status rather than age, and by the 17th Century the term denoted any member of the landed gentry.
