Meaning of "of this Lordship" in Marrage Certificate

Surnames: Squires,
I have a marriage scan which states both of the couples' names as "Of this Lordship" whereas all the other entries state the couple's names as "of this Parish."
e.g. William Squires of this Lordship...
Does this mean the couple in question came from gentry?
