Here is the text: "Por vuestra buen entendimiento os ruego que me digais que manera debo portarme con esos hombres"

I wonder that this mean of "por buen entendimiento" is For that you can understand" or "in your opinion" ?

In this context I would translate it as "because of"

Because of your good understanding (familiarity) I beg you that you tell me the manner in which I should comport myself (behave) with those men.

Through, by way of and other meanings of por could be used.

Because of your good judgment or In your opinion are also possibilities.
