Decipher Occupation**COMPLETED**
« on: Sunday 22 March 09 15:34 GMT (UK) »
Having looked at the image of the 1861 census I don't think it says what I found in the transcription I used. ( I know - its not that unusual!)

But just to make sure, would somebody like to say what they think John's occupation is. I wont give my opinion so as not to prejudice your reading (but perhaps a pat on the head  if you agree with me)

thanks

Thanks, that's what I thought (hence the 'postman' pat joke)
The transcript had him as a "salter" carrier
(and also had Tom age 9  as another John)
