For the sake of completeness, boal is also a  grape type.

Popped in to the Fisherfolk museum in Kings Lynn this morning & a helpful gentleman said he'd always believed 'Boal' means 'mooring' which sounds great in the context of Boal Quay but doesn't make any sense for the original post, sorry.


I've learnt something anyway  ;D

As requested the person whose occupation was recorded as boal maker was -
William Richards 18 yrs ( in 1871 ) brother of Mary H Richards living in Loveday street West Bromwich Staffordshire. The census form shows boal maker quite clearly.

The individual at the foot of the same page - Charles LLoyd - is a Bottle Washer, but the 2 "t"s in the word bottle look just like "l"s.  Also the actual "l"s tend to have a loop in the uprights.  See the double "l" in William and compare with the "t" in his brother Robert's name

Have you found William Richards in later censuses and if so, what was his occupation then?

On the evidence so far, my money would be on him being a Boat Maker.

Boat Maker is an odd term. You don't make boats you build them. Although saying that there are a number of Boat Makers listed with that occupation in Staffordshire in the 1881 census, but looking at some it could actually be Boot Maker.

"listed with that occupation" I should have said "transcribed with that occupation"

Hi     

"The census form shows boal maker quite clearly."
? RG10 / 2986 / 22 / p37 /  . . . . .     

Quite clearly shows that most occurrences of "t" are written without  the  cross part of the "t" in effect as "l".     


Including the "West" in West Bromwich ( title of the census page ).     
Also "Robert" and "brother", Lorna "sister" , "Esther" Oldham next  door,       
Elizabeth andJohn "Watson" neighbours.     
"Agent" "Servant" "Worcester" "Worcestershire"     

Are you reading from a transcript or what you can "see"  ??? ???
