Hello! First time posting and I am not sure if this is the best forum to use for the occupation that my English and Irish ancestors were involved in or not. If there is a better forum please let me know. On my dad's side of the family they were from Worcestershire and Warwickshire in England and Co. Waterford in Ireland. They were butchers in Warwickshire (Birmingham) and in Co. Waterford one ancestor had a joint business in the provisions/pork business. The names involved in these occupations were Wells, Nash and Gadsden. The Nash family was predominantly in Dodderhill (Causeway Meadows Farm) and surrounding areas. The Wells (William and John) were from Rowington and then Birmingham. Gadsden was in Co. Waterford and in business with Joseph Nash. Time period was the mid 1700's to late 1800's. Many (including my line) went to America and Canada. If anyone else has a family involved in this business I would love to hear from you!
