In a article concerning an ancestor who lived in Bristol, RI he is written about as being one of the first "raters" in town. This would have been circa 1681.
Does this have anything to do with the Courts or taxes???

In this context, it means he was essentially an assessor, who determined the value of property and the local tax to be paid on it. In Britain (and colonial America), "rates" referred to property taxes.
