Occupation mill something?
« on: Thursday 03 September 20 00:29 BST (UK) »
Hello, it's me. Again.

I can't make sense of what this occupation is. I think it says mill something for the man and mill something wife for the wife but beyond that I'm stuck.

Piece 3834, Folio 43, Page number 13

Robert Booth about 1850 in Harwood, Lancashire.

On the previous census he was described as mechanic and his wife was a cotton weaver.

Thank you very much.

I see it now. Millw r ig ht
I was trying to make millworker out of it.
I assume it meant Missus didn't have a job, not that she helped her husband with his.
