Very true, Coombs. Although I still have some family lines that are ag labs all the way I've found so far. Ag labs, or miners as is the case with my Cornish ancestors.
An eclectic mix of ag labs, miners, yeoman farmers, tradespeople (one female ancestor is recorded as having 400 laceworkers working for her), clergy and landed gentry. That's my lot, and I'm sure it is the same for others as well.
I am Australian, from all the lands I come (my ancestors, at least!)

Pine/Pyne, Dowdeswell, Kempster, Sando/Sandoe/Sandow, Nancarrow, Carrington, Hounslow, Youatt, Richardson, Jarmyn, Oxlade, Coad, Bentham, Holloway, Lindner, Pittaway, and too many others to name.
Devon, Dorset, Gloucs, Cornwall, Yorks, Bucks, Oxfordshire, Wilts, Germany, Sweden, and of course London, to name a few.

As more comes online, the easier it gets to use our laptops or PC's or mobiles as a "record office".

Seems Isaiah Sutcliffe did not go to Oxford or Cambridge but was later qualified as a vicar.

I think you have covered most of the categories of occupation for people outside industrial towns in the 19th century.  Many rural people (ag.labs.) would have lived in tied cottages and presumably existed self-sufficiently to a large extent.  A Northumberland family on my wife's tree moved year to year between farms, which we can follow with a large-scale map and a succession of baptisms giving their abode.
