Hallmark,
Elliebean says that it is a general query and I am responsible for going off at a tangent by asking re the Abbotts. Sorry.

No problem, just no feedback about 1901 Census etc.

Maybe it wasn't even looked at?

Hi,

Have you considered that "traveller" may be a travelling salesman, or such, as opposed to the polite description of "gypsey"? It could be like a milk or bread server who was not a waiter serving the milk or bread in a restaurant but the deliverer of the item to homes etc. ie; milkman.
