Thanks Trees!!  I replied to your private message. My Irish shoemaker was John McMullen married at Downpatrick 1844.

However, one of my closest matches for DNA was a McMullen from County Londonderry, so this could be very interesting to pursue.

Thanks!!  Tom McMillan

Potters and earthenware dealers are to be found all over northern England of the past. The difference between gipsy and gorgio potters is revealed in their wedding certificates because each tended to marry his own kind. I have collected thousands of parish register entries referring to potters and earthenware dealers. If you would like me to post some of them please select a surname. I will include the other recorded occupations so that you can see what the proportions were.

All the traditional traveller families of the north have similar statistics with just over half the entries referring to pottery and many of the others being hawkers who may well have sold pottery.

If your still intrested in these people I have Billingham's listed as Licenced Earthenware Hawker/Dealer on several of the census (1881 1891) returns, and although the family are listed as living in a Caravan, they come from the Chain making Billingham's of the West Midlands area.

Hi King OTG,
Have you any with the name Mills, from the early 1800s, in Nottinghamshire & Lincolnshire, or general East Midlands counties areas? I'd be very grateful for your help

Wow... At a long shot I thought Id type in my Granda's Grandma's name Ive been relentlessly trying to trace my roots... She was Martha Lowther a grand lady (hawker) married to Tom Crickerd. Her Dad was Chucky Bob Lowther...(Charles Robert Lowther)  Martha and a lot of my family lived on Potters Lonning in Workington.. Was knocked down long before I was born.. I have a photograph of the grand lady and had the honour of meeting her daughter also Martha (My Grandads aunty) Who was also a grand lady  :) My Grandad speaks highly of Martha and says she was a lovely woman. Also sold fish. Our family also has a connection to the Millers of Whitehaven... We may be related  :)
