    Interesting thank you, I was working on the assumption that she was 61, but the first digit could be almost anything, so 41-ish is ok too x

    In 1861 there is a Catherine. E E Oxford residence Hove Sussex. Has her birth 1836 Hadley SUSSEX. As far as I can I haven’t found a Hadley in Sussex. She is 25 and working as a servant for the Metvilles from the East Indies. I havent found another Catherine E E Oxford. Catherine is sometimes known as Caroline or so I’m told.

    What do you make of Samuel Fox's occupation? In 1861 and 1881 he is an Ag Lab, unless the enumerator was throwing a fit whilst writing I don't think that is what this says o_O.

    Thomas Durden, what is his occupation? X and Rake Maker (the rake maker part I have confirmed from 1861 and 1881)

    Crick? According to the OED, one meaning of this is a device for lifting weights from below - a kind of jack. It quotes 4 examples dated from 1775 to 1935.

    That seems more sensible than 'crib' which is the only word that came to my mind, thank you

    Sorry but I think its crib and rake maker...hay crib, hay rake. Both fashioned from wood.:) check the b in crib against the k in maker and rake.

    See your point Sue, but cannot see another word ending in 'b' to
    compare it with! The capital letter could just as easily be a 'G'
    unless there are lots of Clovers there for occupation. So it could
    be 'Grill' may be?

    I agree with AM. The first letter looks very similar to the capital C in their address, which is just 'Cottage'. Even though there is not another word ending in b to compare it to, to me it looks like crib.

    I had another look before reading the latest comments and I now think you're all right about 'crib'. The final letter is very different from the other 'k's on the page, and I wonder how I managed to miss that. :oops:

    alright then, I'm going with the consensus view and going back to crib.

    But there is a 'b' in my other snip in 'timber'. I stumbled on it for a while wondering whether it was an 'h' maybe ... I've just compared timber and crib and the 'b's look identical :)

    Yes, I think you should go with 'Crib', also.
