Squire toby jug - Bairstow Manor Pottery circa 1980

Squire toby jug produced by Bairstow Manor Pottery of Hanley, England, circa 1980. In the Middle Ages, a squire was the shield- or armor-bearer of a knight. Use of the term evolved over time. Initially, a squire served as a knight's apprentice. Later, a village leader or a lord of the manor might come to be known as a "squire", and still later, the term was applied to members of the landed gentry.
