On the 1911 form for Thomas Smith of Manchester, his occupation is listed as "Traveller Fents". I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what that might be. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
Thanks.

Hi Katie
can you give some more info to identify him, so we can look at the record. There are so many Thomas Smiths


not to worry, found him and the answer


‘Fent’ is a local term which in years gone by meant a remnant of fabric measured and sold by weight.
