william edward jury 1790 - 1830
« on: Monday 26 February 18 15:10 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find some information about W.E.Jury whose occupation was "Carman".
This I know from his son John Cramp Jury's baptism & Marriage records.
I have a copy of an admission to Freedom of the city of London as a Carman, the same as his father William Jury 1766 - 1845.
I am particularly interested in his occupation "Carman"

Basically, a white van man, generally working for an employer rather than being self-employed. Horse-drawn, obviously, bringing a different twist to the term "multidrop" ...
