Occupation in early 1800's COMPLETED Thanks
« on: Thursday 14 October 21 02:13 BST (UK) »
We have 5 occupations - all look easy enough to read

Cordwainer, Carpenter, Tilerge, Founder & Laborer

What is TILERGE?

Looks like it could begin with "F" (as in Founder) but maybe it's an old version of a Tiler?

Can't think of what else it could be.

Any other ideas or suggestions?

Thanks

Could they mean tillage? In which case, farming or plowing.

Thanks Parmenion - That hadn't occurred to me. I'll follow it up.

Much appreciated

Thanks for the Newspaper cutting Kay. Seems I might need a few more christening records to see if his occupation was farming related.

What was Pike's first name? And is this Bristol?

There was a family of Pikes in Bristol who were Tilers and Plasterers in the 1830's per the poll books.

This is from 1835:

It looks like Tiler to me too, but the ge at the end?
The initial letters are very similar ,but only one l so unless an error in spelling - not impossible- tiler seems very likely.

For anyone who wants to examine the page in detail this is the baptism of Sophia Pike, daughter of Thomas & Kitty Pike of Ellbroad Street Bristol, 25th December 1808.

Looking at the writing elsewhere on the same page I'm not convinced that the 6th letter is 'g'  :-\
