Gentry

This category comprises all entries where the owner of a library has been identified as a member of the gentry. It can be difficult to define; it generally includes people who may have had occupations or posts in civil administration (MPs, sheriffs, justices of the peace) but whose livelihood came primarily from their landed estates, or inherited wealth. They were gentlemen, below the ranks of the peerage, and include knights and baronets.
