In Ireland, but from Bucks.

At the last count, I have 574 rellies in my tree.
So far their occupations have varied very little. They break down roughly to this.
250 - Agricultural labourers.
150 - Lace makers.
130 - Servants (Domestic)
2 - Inn keepers.
6 - Soldiers. (The ones that died)
1 - Train driver.
2 - Joiners/Carpenters.
30 - Cotton Mill workers.
1 - Drayman.
1 - Lorry/Coach driver.
1 - Nanny/Nurse.

Only one of these owned their own house, that I have found so far. I have not yet found any in poor houses/hostels.
What did your rellies do for work.
