Census Help

Postby Dave R » Wed Sep 16, 2009 9:21 pm

I hope this is allowed on here. Not strictly a picture but I am trying to decipher the occupation of my relation Sophia Chambers from the 1851 census. She is next to the large 62 in the street. She is living with her cousin who I think is "carrying on stone masons business employing 10 men" which sounds impressive. Sophia looks like she "goes out as" something?
Hope someone can help as I'm intrigued.

Yes, I agree with pre1837. You can compare the letters with other ones on the page and I'm sure it says 'nurse'.

It looks to me like "Hired out as Nurse". :P
