How does this differ from what I posted 


What?

I was only interested if, when you searched the term further, you found that what the term meant was different to what I said.

This is an interesting topic. 
Just to add to the list, I too have a marine store dealer in St Helens run by a John Murphy who is Irish and lives with his sister and later his wife, he isnt technically mine but only adopted one of 'my' orphan children.

Just to add somethings from my research. I have several marine store dealers in my ancestry. They are not from gypsy stock and seem to have taken up the trade, just I think as a way to make a living. Sometimes they describe themselves as general dealers. Because when I first uncovered them they were living in coastal or river areas of Kent I took it as a literal trade in goods related to nautical vessels, however having found some who were living inland it does appear to refer to a broader dealership in waste materials as described by stanmapstone. And yes some did get in trouble for receiving stolen goods!

My 2g grandfather was a marine store dealer - which initially intrigued me as he lived in Bedfordshire - not only is the county landlocked, but every county it borders is landlocked too.

As well as a marine store dealer he described himself as a general dealer and rag and bone man.  With the British Newspaper Archive I've also found recently that he was a convicted diamond thief and stole clothes from his parents and sisters to sell.

Not aware of any Gypsy connections on that side though - his family appears to have been publicans and dealers for some years before he was born and reasonably settled in one area.

If you look at my post you will see that although a gypsy could be a marine-store dealer, a marine-store dealer was not necessarily anything to do with gypsies. There were 1,550 marine-store dealers in the 1851 census, and 3,656 in 1861.
If you search for 'marine store dealer' in occupation in the 1881 census, there are 2,566 listed and they are located all over the country.

My Great  grandfather from  Sheffield  was a Marine Store Dealer, it was in the family, he  used  his second name   sometimes , then  his first name , moved and brought it with them Marine Sore Dealer, I guessed it  wasn't  a great job, was   told he sold a forest through the demon drink, that could be  another story
