View Full Version : Anyone with better eyesight than me?!!!!
1841 census living Gnosall, Staffordshire. William Arkenstall with wife Susannah and children. William's occupation is Farmer but above it written very faintly is another word starting BU....
Can anyone make out what it says?
Have you got the reference, can't seem to find him by name
Edit - Ignore me, I was looking in 1851 ....Doh
Looks like Butcher!!
Yes, Butcher would make perfect sense, wouldn't it, cos the 2 occupations often went hand in hand. And one of Susannah's daughters from the 1st marriage married a Butcher.
Problem solved, thank you!
Looks like Butcher to me as well.
Thanks Lyn. That will do me if you can both see what I can't!
***goes to make appt for Specsavers***
