    Occupation

    Can anyone read the following occupation from a 1849 death certificate?

    All I can see is "Basker". I have had good 'Google' but can't seem to find anything relevant.

    Many thanks

    Broker?
    Do you have him on 1841 census?

      Thanks Kat.

      In 1841 he is a carpenter, one of a long line!

          Thanks Carolyn.

          No clues from the letters on the rest of the certificate as far as I can see.

            Mmmmm...

            I am now thinking it is 'Br?ker' after blowing it up.
            The second letter looks the same as the 'n' in 'fourteenth' and 'present'.

            So Kat's suggestion of Broker looks possible.

                  I guess he was just selling furniture/carpentry rather than making it?
