I think it says Cotton although the t's haven't been crossed. Looking at the images of the pages either side the Enumerator often seems to omit the last o from cotton. However whether she was a Cotoon Winder, Cotton Piecer or Cotton Doffer, or did anything else with cotton we'll never know!

Thanks Emeltee.

That is probably it.

It's not Founder Mechanic and it's not Ashton Under Lyme. I fixed those two.

Ok, now I am confused. Is there a difference between Ashton Under Lyme and Ashton Under Lyne?

parking map of all Ashton Under Lyme free car parks,
Moving and dignified scenes from Ashton-under Lyme, as a funeral procession takes place for 43 people killed in an explosion at a TNT factory.
Two names for same place or two different places?

Ashton-under-Lyne is a market town in Tameside, Greater Manchester

Doubt that. Latin is very rarely used in occ. Think it's Cottn = cotton but usually followed by another word.
