Which I'm trying to get to grips with!

Could anyone tell me what this occupation is? On George Harris and John Harris, image 7 of 10, 1841 census, Schedule 22, page 14, Whittlebury, Northants, district 9. It looks like 'keeper', is this correct and if so, what is it?

thanks

Thank you - how interesting. I'd guess out of the two, it could be game keeper as it was an agricultural area that they were living in, and many around them were agricultural labourers. Just shows, we shouldn't take anything for granted, until proven! :)
