What does it say after Police Officer please?
« on: Wednesday 06 August 14 23:11 BST (UK) »
Hi

This is James Arundel in 1861 as, it appears, a police officer.  This is odd because in 1851, 1871, 1881 etc he worked as a machine fitter/mechanic.  Just wondering what the words are after Police off...

While I'm here, can anybody possibly think of a reason a mechanic should suddenly become a police officer and then revert to trade??

Thanks
Joan

Hi Joan,

I agree with Ady, that it is Lancs Cons = Lancashire Constabulary. It would make sense as he's living in Preston, Lancs if I'm not mistaken.

Kind regards

But he is only 24 years old. He possibly had an occupation on the previous census but that's all.
