1861 census IMAGE lookup request : John Briggs
« on: Monday 16 August 21 10:11 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to verify what occupation is noted for John Briggs born 1833 Staunton, Leics.
He's on RG09 2524 / 30 Page 28.
Transcription says 'Police Officer' but I have my doubts. Could some please kindly check to the image. Thanks.

As Shaun says, no doubt at all. Police officer.

Thank you very much.

I can't find him at all on 1841 1851 or 1871 (dead by 1881).
