Peerage to the poor organized the social groups accepted during the time of our Cadwallader Jones (JO-1). "Catholic", "Monarchist", "Gentry", would classify our Cadwallader.

A good reference for this is "The World We Have Lost, England Before the Industrial Age", by Peter Laslett, Charles Scribner's Sons, 1965.
