Fair Keeper
« on: Saturday 04 January 14 11:54 GMT (UK) »
Hi

After some advice. On the 1842 Wedding Certificate of my 3 x Grandfather William Rhodes to Elizabeth Barber, Williams occupation was Fair Keeper.
What did this occupation consist of. From then on in his life he was a General Dealer, Hawker and Horse Dealer.
My whole family heritage is travellers but this is the only time i have come across Fair Keeper

Many thanks
