Hi, my G G Grandfather William Muir has his father as William Muir, Chemist on his marriage cert in 1872.

Although the marriage was in Newcastle, William was born in Scotland.

Upon searching I find that 'chemist' isnt that common an occupation on the census and there are no Muir chemists in either the 1871 or 1861 census.

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what else he could have described his occupation on the census.

Any help much appreciated.
