Yes, I wasn't saying that Nathaniel was "in trade", but that it is quite possible that his father was.

Thank you.  I was trying to work out the timeline for Nathaniel Hodges ... maybe ...
1725 inherited from Joseph Jory,
1725 "laid down his ministry",
1725 purchased a half-share in the Buttall sugarhouse (so now "in trade"),
1727 knighted,
1727 died.

Almeroth, Germany (maybe Hessen).

I researched this family tree for a friend of my son. I must say in all the years I have done family research the Buttall family has been the most interesting - every twig of the tree threw up a new surprise. Obviously I don't have permission from the family to put this information online - and because of poor health I am no longer able to pursue the research myself. However if you message me privately via rootschat I will pass your details to my son's friend and ask his family to contact you.
