Arthur Bland, Skin Sorter (Fur), born London, De Beauvoir Town [or variant spelling - it’s in Hackney]
Joseph Brown, Brother-in-law, Upholster (Cabt), born Kent, Woolwich

Fur and Cabt (= Cabinet) are the occupation classifications, added later by a government clerk.

“Mitford Tavern” refers only to the first household shown, Stevenson, where the head is a licensed victualler (running the pub).

House Decorator

Assistant, Fancy leather Goods Warehouse

You need to remove all the images, or a Moderator will do it. The forum doesn’t allow full census images to be posted – only snippets are allowed, for deciphering purposes.
