‘Twas of some estate.

This is kind of a fun way to say that someone is rich or well-to-do. It’s like a way that only someone of estate would say it.
It makes me think about all those articles and studies that point out how the wealthy never want to call themselves rich – they like to say things like “comfortable.” I can imagine that “of some estate” might well fit into that same category.
