Translation of farm occupations please
« on: Friday 14 April 17 14:07 BST (UK) »
Thank you in advance for any help that can be given.

My mother, grandmother, g-grandfather and gg-grandfather were all born or lived at Tynllechwedd farm, Gwyddelwern.  From the 1911 census, I would be grateful if anyone could translate the attached jobs please?

Many thanks,

Nic

I apologise. Gadget is correct: farmer's daughter working in the house.
