Hi Ray -- I know BumbleB had actually posted a misinterpretation of an occupation with 'Tennis Rocket' - but as Treetotal said - I just thought that a 'Nuisance Inspector' - would also give people a smile.

It made me laugh when I saw it - and, oh boy, laughs seem to be in short supply at the moment in the world.

I just found this one earlier;

Quarrel Picker - 17-18c.

A glazier.
A small Piece of Glass
A pun on Quarrel

taken from a book that I have called Occupations - A Preliminary List, by Joyce Culling.

Interesting and we can all learn something new every day.  ;D

Just remembered another old occupation which is interesting

Saggar makers bottom knocker

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
If you don't ask the question, you won't get an answer.
He/she who never made a mistake, never made anything.

As you say BumbleB - every day is a school day!!

I think Quarrel Picker is hilarious - I know one or two and they don't have anything to do with glass.

The Nuisance Inspector's actual job is not what I imagined - who the heck would want a job like that!

I did know about the Sagger Maker's Bottom Knocker -- also very funny.
