Ok gang, let's have them. What interesting things have you gleaned from various census returns? I will kick off with Sow Gelder, truly, no idea how you can geld a sow but it was clearly written. I cannot imagine why anyone would spey a sow but there we are. I also had a Brush Drawer. This one sent me off down a huge rabbit hole and unearth the fascinating art of making brushes. Domestic and yard brushes were made using tar or glue on the backs to hold the bristles in. But personal brushes were altogether different. Bristles were pushed through the drilled holes and then wired in at the back. This lass was working in Clerkenwell, London i 1861. There was even a Brushmakers Guild.
