I thought this would be an interesting subject for my website. After gathering so much information through census records and parish registers, I have listed below the occupations of some of the ancestors I have on my tree. Obviously, the occupation is noted only once for each era, but there were quite a few ancestors who were Silversmiths, Jewellers, Farmers or Ag Labs.
