    ["There are no specific records for shoemakers until the mid-1800s but they do appear listed in trade directories,apprenticeship indentures and removal examinations before this date. Sometraining took place through the Poor Law Authorities and Orphanages who trained boys in the shoemaking industry. These records may be found at local record offices. Cordwainers’
    Companies and Guilds, Cordwainers’ Livery Company, Shoemakers’ Society,
    census returns and manorial court recordscould prove useful to a researcher.
    The National Union of Boot and Shoe Operatives was the biggest union and
    their records are held at the University of Warwick for the period 1850s to
    1970s. Norwich and Northamptonshire were both extensive shoe
    manufacturing areas and many records relating to individual shoemakers and
    firms making shoes are held at the Northampton Museum. They also hold
    relevant photos, books, journals,postcards and trade catalogue."]

    Morning Jeff, William (1779?) would have been a Shoemaker between 1800 and 1834. Deardens History-Nottingham 1834 has an entry of;
    Wm.Tuckwood-Shoemaker Beck Lane Notts
    C.Tuckwood - Shoemaker Beck Lane Notts (That was his son,Charles)
    After that Charles took on an Apprentice.

    Maggie,

    In answer to your original query

    From Notts FHS Burial Index:

    20 November 1825 at Nottingham St Mary Elizabeth TUCKWOOD, Cross Street, aged 30
    4 August 1823 at Nottingham St Mary Charlotte TUCKWOOD, Cross Street Pannier Close, aged 15

    Notts FHS Marriage Index has the marriage at Radford on 4 March 1829 of a William TUCKWOOD & a Sarah KING which doesn't exactly fit with the date shown in the Newspaper article but is the only marriage for a William TUCKWOOD to a Sarah on the Index in the correct timescale. This marriage date is also confirmed by an Ancestry Select Marriages record.
