COMPLETED Deciphering trade entry on baptism record
« on: Tuesday 31 July 12 18:16 BST (UK) »
Hi, I was wondering if anybody could tell me what the trade is in the attached baptismal entry please?

The entry is for John Smith, baptised 1838 in St. Dunstan, Stepney. I can read the following-

Child's Christian Name: John, Parents' Name Christian: James and Mary, Surname: Smith, Abode: ???, Quality, trade or Profession: ???.

I would be grateful for any help!

Thanks very much,

Zoe

I'd say the residence is MEOT - Mile End Old Town.
