  1. Life of an agricultural labourer

    Has anyone got a good synopsis of the life and work of an agricultural labourer in about 1850? I've been googling but not found anything which might sum this up fairly succinctly. Many thanks for any help Clare

    A good number of my ancestors were agricultural labourers, but my main interest is in my 2x great gramdfather Charles Jenkins (1844-1916).

  7. coal ash labourer

    I've just come across a "coal ash labourer". Anyone any ideas of what he would have done? Coal ash is obviously the residue left from buring coal, but I wonder what this chap would have done with it. He was in Ramsgate, so not in an industrial area.

  12. Smile Tracing Ag Labs in the 1700s

    Hello all - is there anyone who has successfully traced ag labs back into the 1700s? I'm hoping that someone might have useful experience and be able to provide some tips on looking for ancestors who aren't well-known for leaving much paperwork behind! Thank you (with fingers crossed)

  17. Riverside Worker for J S Darwen

    I have a James Hart who on joining up in 1915 gives his job as "Riverside Worker" for J S Darwen & Co, Red Star Wharf, Pritchards Road, Hackney. Would that job be similar to Waterside Worker i.e working on the docks? The only such named road in London is indeed in Hackney, but that isn't that...

  20. labourers

    I am looking for the old name of a person who would move someone and their goods from one place to another. I presume they used a wagon or cart and horses. The word Carter comes to mind but when I looked it up on this site I got Pres. Carter etc.
