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...
