What do " estate " and " merchandise " mean in this sentence? " He got a good estate by merchandise." and It soppused " merchandise " be an action while it is only a word. :/

Estate is property, usually land. Merchandise here means trade/commerce. Basically, the guy got a good piece of land through buy and sell. Something like that, if you take it literally.
