Title: Occupation in 1841 Census
Post by: Davedrave on Sunday 21 November 21 08:55 GMT (UK)
I cannot read the occupation of William aged 50 in the 1841 Census of Thurlaston, Leicestershire. FindMyPast haven’t hazarded a guess. He was in the household of his brother, George Woodward, and family. George was a butcher but also a farmer and a publican, and I think the other people here were probably staying in his pub. I had until now completely missed William in the census. I think the same William was buried in Thurlaston in 1849, so no clue to occupation from the 1851 census.

Many thanks. It seems obvious now that you’ve read it for me. Many people in this area were so engaged but they are usually referred to simply as “framework knitter” or just “fwk”.
