Occupation, 1841, Norfolk?
« on: Friday 05 October 18 10:29 BST (UK) »
The writing is quite good, the lines quite clear, but I cannot interpret this occupation.  :'(

"Fen XXX Worker" is my best partial interpretation.

(1841 census, DIss, Norfolk: HO107/758/ Book 6; Folio 6/p 4)

I have found a "Hannah Francis" elsewhere in this census which confirms the first letter of the occupation is 'F'.

Read "Tin plate Worker" before looking at replies.
