Hi, Could anyone help me read what pretty much all of this says:
William Stephenson and Martha Greenwood..JPG

It's from a marriage entry in a parish record from 1870's. If anyone could help make sense of the occupations (the one directly above a big hyphen, and then the last two boxes on top of each other at the far right.)

Thanks to anyone who can help.
Ryan:)

On my own I can come up with absolutely nothing, so I'm going with what you say :)

As a footnote - didn't know blinds had been invented then; or am I being really stupid?! :)
