Stamper Inland Revenue - or is this a real one? He seems to be a mason elsewhere.

Some great ones there everyone - thanks for the laughs.  I don't think I have any amusing errors like that in my tree.  I do have one status written under occupation for an ancestor who was living with a man to whom she was not married:  'Concubine'.   ;D

I think that my be a real one.  They did have a stamping department.  I think it's something to do with marking goods with a stamp  to indicate duty paid
