I can't come up with anything besides Tailer (Master). Perhaps he started out as a tailor but ended up as a labourer; I've worked on a family tree where a man b. Ireland circa 1840 was listed as a tailor, then farmer, and finally labourer as he went through life. Are there any other words beginning with "T" on the page that you can compare with.
