"Squire: A fighter who has been accepted as a student by a member of the Chivalry. The relationship varies a great deal depending on the personalities involved and on the customs of the Kingdom. Since it results from a purely personal arrangement, the word 'squire' is not a title or rank. Some squires wear red belts in token of the association - a custom which is prevalent in some Kingdoms and relatively rare in others."
- The SCA Known World Handbook.

"Esquire (noun):  In medieval times, a candidate for knighthood who served a knight as an attendant and shield bearer. [Middle English 'esquire', from Old French 'escuier', from Late Latin 'scutarius', Shield Bearer, from Latin 'scutum', shield."
- American Heriatge Dictionary.
