View Full Version : Shiplots??? occupation on Certificate

I am unable to make out the occupation of a John Burton on his daughter Mary's marriage certificate 24 Dec 1843. It looks like it could be Shiplots Worker. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Thank you.

Now this is REALLY sad, replying to your OWN query!!! Thought I would put an end to it as Ruth1 hit paydirt on the general occupations site with several responses of Tinplate Worker and went on to find the person she was looking for on the Census as a tinman. Now if only we could find some Ruby Slippers....guess I'd need to locate a cordwainer for that??? Thanks to those who checked out my plea.
