I have an A - Z for old occupations if any one wants a look-up anytime
Does your book have a Fellowship Porter, as an occupation?
Fellowship Porter, a member of a group of London porters, a guild of manual labourers who moved measurable goods such as coal or grain between warehouses and ships on the river Thames, or between warehouses and other premises.
I believe they had their own association and wore a badge of office
Thank you so much
@MollyMay you might find this article of interest. There's quite a mention of Fellowship Ports.
Records of the Association of Fellowship Porters are held at LMA.
Sorry if I've gone off piste.
Could you be so kind as to see what your book has for 'mantler'?
The person so described in the burial affidavit died in 1683.
Mantle Cutter: a stone cutter who carved fireplace mantle pieces.
Mantle Maker: a person who made mantles from cotton soaked in nitrates for gas lamps.
Mantle Forewoman, highly skilled dressmaker, a person who made a type of cloak called a mantle, which was worn over your clothes.
hope it my be one of those Burt.
Thanks, Dogsday. I would guess the third option is more likely.
