Old occupation?

I have come across an odd occupation in the 1901 census for Salford - "LUNYMAN" - at least that's what it looks like. He was not mentally ill at all!!

The enumerator has written 'Carm" above it, presumably for Carman, but The Genealogist have transcribed it as "Laundryman".

Has anyone come across a Lunyman before?

Many thanks for any help.

Re: George Frederick Helsden born 24/12/1822

Hi All
My sister and i have been up several blind alleys looking for George Frederick Helsden's father James, we still cannot find any info or direct connection to GFH as to where he was living from his birth in 1822 up until signing up for the Royal Navy in 1841.

Photo identification possibly Freemasons?

Can anyone identify the outfit this man is wearing? The photo had pride of place over Grandad's fireplace but we never thought to ask who it was. It is possibly John Love a shoemaker born 1847 in Eye Northamptonshire and died in Aston, Warwickshire in 1905 but I'm not convinced he would have made it into the Freemasons. Thankyou.

George Newton Manchester and Burnley, Lancs.

George Newton (b. Manchester ca 1844, son of Jabez and Ann) died 9 Feb 1902 at the County Asylum, Whittingham, Lancs. of gangrene of the lung (sounds awful).
George lived in Burnley, married to my relative Jane Hibbert. On the death under rank/profession it says iron moulder of Workhouse, Burnley.
Two questions this raises for me: was George at Whittingham for a mental illness and died due to possibly septic pneumonia (my guess) or would ...

Several Post-1837 Problems

Hello all, I have a bunch of problems trying to find records for various people, post 1837, so there should be records to be found. I am sorry the title of this post is a bit vague, but I thought that putting all my queries in a single thread might seem less like I was trying to dominate the message boards with all my questions. (Plus there is a limit to the length of the ...

Missing burials

My ancestor Thomas Bouchier was baptised on the 14 June 1730 at Hope Mansell, Herefordshire. He had five children by his first wife Catherine Baker whom he married at Mortlake Surrey on the 24 Jan 1762.
He then appears in Lambeth Surrey when he married his second wife Isabel Escolme at St Mary parish church on the 7 Feb 1776.
Catherine would therefore have died between 1764 when her last child was born and 1776, ...
