What did Daddy do ?
AncestorsIt is interesting to see what occupations were followed by my direct ancestors. There have been clear instances of families (either siblings or descandants) following identical or related trades.
It is perhaps surprising that as the most common occupation (until the 20th century) was labourer or agricultural labourer, how few of my ancestors worked in that line.
OccupationsThis is the list of occupations of my direct ancestors, grouped by gender, and sorted alphabetically.
Each line represents one individual.
I have ignored occupations from census records such as Scholar for children, or Tailors Wife for spouses.
For people with multiple occupations in their lifetime I have eliminated those of very short duration, and included all of significance - those are comma separated. Males
In my family it appears they either took over their husband's occupation upon his death or undertook work that was part-time in nature. Females
