There are new human positions in charge of trade agreements, like the dwarf outpost liaison. They have various different titles. This could be one of them. You'll know soon enough when they try to talk to you.

If they don't, well, there's a whole bunch of other positions added to human civs in 47.x. He'll just be a regular visitor with that title.

Could it also be a religious title? I've seen some odd one but none with "of the" construction.

My fort's religious leader is called the Sacred Insect.

I believe Keeper of the Seal is one of the new civ position that can be generated. That position, like most of them, probably doesn't do anything, although I guess in the real world it would be a head bureaucrat who made sure official stamps and similar equipment was kept under control to combat forgery (or, more likely, a sinecure for someone to receive payments for not actually doing anything, while a real) bureaucrat actually performed the actual work).

Yeah, sacred xyz and holy xyz are religious positions. Keeper of the seals is a regular medieval job title. He's the guy who signs contracts for the crown.
