    What is Philip Barrett's occupation please, in 1861 he is a labourer and in 1881 a dairyman, but I cannot decipher this ...

    It looks like Tranter to me.

    A Tranter was someone who used a horse and cart to travel round, hawking their wares or carting goods for other people.

    Thank you, I was thinking it began with an F at first which didn't help. Then I thought Tranter but imagined it was a word I had just made up :rolleyes:
