This may be off topic, but I have found a family listed in the 1850 census
for Tennessee with the father's given name "Squire". A later census shows a
given name of Tom. Is "Squire" a title? What would it represent?

Many thanks in advance. I did a google search, but found nothing definitive,
though it appears it may have something to do with being a justice of the
peace. His occupation is 'farmer'.
