Title: William Etherton 1861 Chichester Occupation
Post by: bairn359 on Wednesday 17 November 21 16:39 GMT (UK)
Hi, I'm struggling to make out this handwriting and wondering if ye good people on rootschat can help me please.

William Etherton at the Prince of Wales in Chichester on the 1861 census of Sussex, England

In the occupation column it says Blacksmith but I was wondering what follows that?

(The 1841 and 1851 census has his occupation as a Blacksmith)
