Talking What attracts a husband to his wife.?

Just been chasing down my 5x Gramps, Henry Simons.

I have been bobbing about between North Marston & Cublington in Bucks.

I came across what seemed an amusing occupation for a father in the PR's for Cublington.

Baptism
- 11 Oct 1829. Martha daughter of Henry & Susannah SIMMONS of Cublington, Calf Man.

Personally, I'm a face man......and never thought that a profession.

I would guess he's a man that cured calf skins for various purposes.


Steve.

Re: What attracts a husband to his wife.?

Just to change the subject slightly but still staying with occupations - In work one day we were having a chat about family history and what our ancestors did for a living. I said that my 3 x gt grandfather was a currier in the 1800s and got back the question "Did they deliver parcels in those days, then?"

I give up.

I bet it may have crossed their minds, your ancestor opened the first Indian restaurant.

I had a similar experience, when I asked what they thought a Plaiter was. You can imagine the answers.
