Hi everyone,

Ancestry's Concise Genealogical Dictionary gives this definition of Yeoman:
A freeholder who works his own small estate; an attendant in a royal
household; a rank below that of gentlemen.

In Colonial America, it seems that the first and last of these 3
definitions would have been true.
