Usage: She was ladylike, too, after the manner of the feminine gentility of those days; characterized by a certain state and dignity, rather than by the delicate...grace which is now recognized as its indication.

gentility
- breeding, gentleness, refinement, formality, rank, politeness
- high birth, good family, good breeding, good manners

Usage
- Everyone could see his gentility as a strong an definitive sign of high birth despite the deep sense in the back of my head that there was something incomprehensible wrong in his attitude that made my bells ring.
