I have found an entry whilst browsing the 1851 census for Salford Priors, Warks, where the occupation is given as 'Pauper' and 'Paupers wife' (James & Rachel Wallace & family Emma, Enoch, Ellen & George) - this is not connected to my own research but I wondered if this would just mean that they were unemployed and being supported by the parish?

Thanks.
