Scotland occupation query
« on: Friday 03 September 21 21:36 BST (UK) »
I am struggling to read the occupation of a person from Scotland on a copy of a handwritten document dated 1895.

It looks like 'Domestic Freshman' but doubt that is correct.

Is it possible that someone here might have an idea as to the occupation identified.

A copy of the document is attached

Need to think about the first word, but the second looks like Coachman to me.

Could it be Domestic Coachman

Thank you all for your replies - looks like it is a Domestic Coachman.

I have now removed the attachment.

I am most grateful to you all.
