Hi All, Can anyone explain what a Journeyman Baker was around 1860. Someone selling bread on foot? Cheers :)

Being a Journeyman had nothing to do with travelling!

In addition to the link Ricky has given, you will also find some useful information in the Rootschat Lexicon http://www.rootschat.com/links/05ed/

I also have a Baker journeyman in my family tree around the same time, and wondered if anyone knows how long a bakers apprenticeship was, and therfore how long they'd have to train before they could call themselves a journeyman.

Thanks,

An apprenticeship was traditionally seven years.  Having qualified some of them never progressed beyond being a journeyman.

That's interesting as my ancestor was only 19/20 when their wife listed this as their profession, and only nine months earlier had been working as an agricultural labourer. They were living in the workhouse until they were at least 14 so this just can't be correct.

Thank you for your help,
