Hi Susyswan

A townsman is a resident of a town I think. I am not sure if it was an actual occupation?

I think it could me a "Commercial Traveller" actually as well. I just googled old occupations.

Where did you find this reference in your family?

doe's any one know what a townsman is.

A townsman is a castle dweller, someone who is living in a stately home or castle, servants who were in higher service to the aristocracy, ie footmen, butlers etc, and lived on the premises used to be classed as townsmen. Hope this helps.
