Fruit and veg trade in Stourbridge area early 19th century

Postby gowerwootton » Sat Jun 28, 2008 12:13 am

Does anyone out there know anything about the Liveters of Old Swinford, Stourbridge? I am particularly interested in a Mary Liveter who married a greengrocer/fruiterer Thomas Southall in 1829.
I have read that fruit and veg was a predominantly Jewish trade at that time. Can anyone confirm this?
Can anyone help with the Liveter surname origin?
In the same light does anyone know anything about the Gadds of Cradley, also greengrocers?

I was interested to see your posting about a Thomas Southall who married a Mary Liveter in the Stourbridge area in 1829, as my husband's family originated in Stourbridge.
Southall was a very common name in that area but I have not heard of any Liveters before. If I do come across any during my research, I will let you know.
