Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No proof, but the language of the last one doesn't feel 19C British to me.

"The man that" is an Americanism: even today, British English would prefer the relative "who". The verb "control" is modern; I'd expect "master", for example. And I don't know when "the money supply" became current. I wish the OED wasn't so expensive...
