Here's another one - the occupation of Thomas Grant of Niblet's Court

I think it might be tiler etc.

Agreed. It's "Tiler &c"

The snip in the original posting appears to be from a transcription. This is the original, followed by an example of the letter 'g' from the same page.

Oh you are wonderfully clever Chatters  ;D

You're right - this was the bp for Sophia and now I've finally found her father was anything from a Plasterer, sometimes Painter to even a Tiler on an odd occasion. Generally all the same building trade I guess.

I can now see that "ge" is most likely their version of "etc". It all makes sense - THANK YOU  :-*

Thanks also for the Bristol Archives link with info re Ellbroad (sp?) Street GG. Interesting to read about the area.

Again - many thanks everyone. I really appreciate your help.

I think it is a very odd “ of” but so close to tiler seemed part of that
word.

It's not "ge" it's "&c"
