If someone in the 19th century had 2 occupations would it be possible for both (separately) to be written on documents.   The death certificate of John Postlethwaite records his occupation as Prison Officer which coincides with Census records etc  However, in a newspaper article his death shows his occupation as a shoemaker.  The birth of his daughter also shows him as being a master shoemaker.  I'm sure they are both the same person as everything else checks out.  Perhaps this was the norm?Any suggestions?

Thanks all of you for the super sleuth research!  :D   I just need to make some kind of tree to see where it all fits in re: John Postlethwaite where he was in 1871 and when/where he died

1861 Census doesn't seem right  No Mary but Elizabeth   DOB and place of birth different
1871 Census  - John and Mary fits in well with 1851   :(  Any suggestions?

1851 - John and Mary Ann Occ: Officer of House of Correction
1861 John and Elizabeth (and Edwin J) Occ:  Prison Officer Still looking for a marriage between them
1871 is the Census Rosie suggested and I'm still checking that out as he's with Mary, again!

That's not the right John Prostlethwaite as his father's name was William and not Thomas
