Hi Selina i have replied to your message i cant tell you a huge amount about the Bostocks and Calladines, im still researching them myself, my lot where mostly based in whittington moor derbyshire. They would go back there each winter to restock on pottery from the pot factories there and then off they would travel all down the west coast of england to wales selling the wares. Would love to know a lot more about the gypsy earthenware dealers.

Hi
I want to trace my son's Great grandmother. Her maiden name was Margaret Proctor. She was married to Joseph Smith. I believe both were from traveller families.

Hi. All. My family's Mitchell. Dale. Miller's. Etc. Were all earthenware. Pot dealer's./hawkers. Going back to burslem staffs.1740s . usually seconded.saltware. but fancy china as time went by. Selling at fairs. Weekly markets. And door to door. We travelled as far as Liverpool. It had Lots of pot factories back then.so lots of seconded pottery. Olso Lancashire.and  Cumberland. Yorkshire.down south. In 1747 Jesse Mitchell Wed Sarah evens.In Liverpool. Then we seem to go everywhere. In the country. And the rest is history as they say. But I have lots of pot selling travellers in all my family's. Seems something most of us did back then. But hawking and dealing. Horse trading were olso a main. or secondary work. As ever we turn a hand to anything. we used to camp with the calladines. Many year's back. Good crack. Nice people. Lots of gypsy travellers. Were agents for the factories. Taking china s.o.r. as they could sell. But not pay for the pots. Tipping out earnings.after a few weeks And taking a cut. As they got more money they could buy outright.and travelled further. Hope It may help. A bit. Regards Rob

No other information unfortunately. I have searched census records and births. Margaret and her husband Joseph Smith lived in Newport, South Wales and were no longer travellers. However, my ex-husband remembers travelling to the Gloucester area as a child and visiting his Grear grandmother who lived in a Romany caravan. Pretty sure they were fairground people. Their son will be 90 on Friday and my sons are going to see him so I will ask them to ask him if he has any more information. Is it true that many traveller children are not registered?
