Besides the close proximty I alluded to in the last message, no one has yet made it clear that Col. John Carter, Thomas of Ilse of Wight, Thomas of Barford ... and ... Edward Dale were all Merchants, that is, either Grocers or Vintners. Where a Vintner was a specialized Wine Merchant!
Merchant and Mister were separate nomers, completely apart from the most Prestigous title of Planter. Yes, of course, Planters traded their tobacco crops - but were apart from the "common" Merchant.
