Hi, I have just found out that one of my Ancestors is listed in the Middlesex Baptisms as having an occupation called ' Jockeyman'. I cannot find a description for what this type of work would entail.
Anyone throw any light on this? What would the work have involved? The family as far as I can tell used to be involved in farming.

I have ancestors shown in England Census with the occupation Jockeyman. Was there a definitive answer to this?
