Cooper

Hi,

My 2xGt Grandfather William Cox was a cooper by trade (maker of barrels). On the 1851 census I have found him as a qualified cooper and I am trying,without any luck so far,to find him on the 1841 census.He would be aged about fifteen and presumably an apprentice.

I have found a likely entry,but this William was an apprentice wheelwright.Now,someone has suggested that the two occupations may have overlapped.

I would be grateful if anyone could give me their thoughts on these two trades.

Many thanks,

Marisan.
