Ah, that 1757 marriage fits in well - well done.

There's now another thread about the term Beaker in Calne registers - see https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=809686.0.

My wife has kindly compared some burial entries with wills and found someone described as a Beaker in the register and Baker in his will (see Reply #2 in that thread), so adding that to BumbleB's findings in Reply #8 here, I think in this case the 'ground-breaking' suggestion has well and truly bitten the dust.

No - see the start of my comment at Reply #10. It's just that BumbleB was the one who found the evidence in the registers.

I'm happy to confirm that your initial opinion was correct - as indeed was mine until I started digging around and confusing everyone.  ::)

Including you:
Think I'll now go with the breaker upper, Arthur - given that he's a labourer in the other entries.

O what power I wield!  ;)  :-X

Other than this:
Sketchy timeline - all Calne - all baptisms are for children of John and Betty Hand, but with differing occupations (Labourer, Day Labourer, Beaker and Baker)

on a quick re-read they didn't appear to mention the word Beaker or its possible meaning.
