    Deciphering occupation?

    Hello,

    Is it possible for any of you to decipher Henry's occupation (bottom right marriage to Emma Morris)?

    My initial thought was it may be Auctioneer, but following him through the census it is much more likely to be Pensioner. On the 1881 census under Hy Nicholls his occupation is given as Chelsea Pensioner (Royal Marines) There are other indications to a naval background too.

      I vote for pensioner - was going to ask if there had been a military connection, but Bubble beat me to it!
