Hi Mike,
as intimated by MPG, the National Archives site have many references to the Carters of Arlingham, one of which shows that Giles c1792 was indeed a man of property; this helps clear it up a little.

"This collection relates to the Carter family who were owners or occupiers of Puckpool Farm, Arlingham, from c.1756 to 1938. The property came to the family through the marriage of Giles Carter of Arlingham, yeoman, with Ann Hodges, in 1756. By his will (1792) his widow retained a life interest in the estate, and after her death in 1821, it passed to their eldest son William by whom it was heavily mortgaged. Under the terms of his will (1833) it was inherited by his sons Giles and John. The stock, implements and household furniture were put up for sale in 1864 when John Carter bought most of the lots and settled accounts with his brother. Although the farm was sold to Nathaniel Hawkins in 1888 and came on the market again after his death in 1910, the Carter family continued to farm it as tenants until John William Carter retired in 1938."
