Is it anything to do with entry below which has been crossed out?

End bit looks like mother/maker/worker (sorry I'm no help)

Thanks. I think the deleted entry below says "Ag. Lab", removing the stem of the L would make the word above be maker/mother/worker you're right.

She grows up to be a dressmaker, but the beginning doesn't really look like dress.

Could the word have nothing to do with the scholar line and be an alternative for the crossed out word...which i agree looks like agricultural labourer

Pauper worker (crossed out ag lab)?

Looking at the full image at Ancestry, the entry below Rebecca is Elizabeth Shepherd. I think the word that is hard to decipher belongs to her entry line: i.e. Elizabeth Shepherd, occupation Pauper, and when Ag Lab was crossed out, this word was written above.

Further on there are some shoe makers and the maker part looks just the same.
Might it be shoemaker too? (And yes relating to the entry below)

Yes I wondered about shoemaker, having gone to look at the original to compare handwriting. He didn't write anything after scholar on any other entry so I also think it's on the wrong line. She was just a scholar.  What awful writing he had! You can only read some of the entries because you already know from the context what should be there!
