    The 3rd, 4th and 5th letters are Ock, so I would suggest that the word is Stockbroker.

    Whoever said Seek and Ye shall find was not a genealogist.

    So good they named it twice David.
    Yes. Ironmonger - that fit's in nicely. I can see that now

    Well, I didn’t intend to send it twice Kat, must be some arthritis in the send finger or something.

    Ha! I gave you all four occupations as I was mystified by 'fourth from the bottom'. Why not say the top one! LOL
