Check this out. Look at square seven. Notice how it refers to Richard Mansfield as "Mr.". What I found out about that was there was only one other "Mr.". So I looked that up and found this.

mister: In Colonial New England, "Mister" was a term of respect applied to gentleman, office holders and clergy.

I'm willing to bet he was a "gentleman".

Hope this helps!
