1871 Census - Farm Occupations Please?
« on: Saturday 22 December 18 00:21 GMT (UK) »

Hi,
Can anyone out there please help to decipher the two-word occupations on this 1871 census (left-hand column)? 

 I see ? livery at the start of each occupation, followed by 'Clerk' for the second occupation.

The address given for these people is a large farm, so presumably the occupations were of an agricultural nature.

Thanks in advance.

Winslass
