  1. Occupation in 1891 – “anything (out of work)”

    Census records often just record one occupation for the head of the household, even if he or she was undertakings several jobs. ¬†Occasionally two may be recorded, such as “shoemaker and farmer”.

    Our searchers this week were investigating a Nunn family of Lambeth, where the father gave “anything” for his occupation in the 1891 census. ¬†Unfortunately he was then out of work, so presumably he was really willing to do any job that came along!
