Welsh > English translation please of profession and employment
« on: Thursday 09 August 18 17:08 BST (UK) »
Good afternoon and thank in advance for any help that can be given.

I have included an extract showing the occupation and employment for a head of house and his wife.  I can see that he was a farmer and I am assuming that "Meister" is Master (i.e. it is his own business)?
I do not know what either of the expressions are for his wife.

Many thanks,

Nic

Thank you Bevbee - I should listen to my wife as she gave the same translation.

Much appreciated!
