You been reading my thread about the TNA?? (below this one) Merry

Merry was offering a shoe maker for a lighterman this morning? But I think she has more than her required quantity of ag labs. I want one of her posh rellies - the ones who marry rich old men or who get the VC.

You can have one of my suicides if you want for the bloke who fell off the hay cart.

I don't have any relatives with the VC!!!! LOL hope I didn't make a typo.....how embarrassing! It was the MC Merry

Isnt that just as good - or was he just a Master of Ceremonies at weddings - a disco dj or something?

I can do you a ''urinal cleaner for the parish'' (they are very rare....only one on my tree)....but what will you swap for him?? Parish was St Pancras, so bet there were a lot of urinals?!! Merry

See, even your common blokes have uncommon jobs. Im closely guarding my 'Marsh Looker'.

Merry Monty

Merry Monty Report 11 Apr 2006 14:52

MC is Military Cross....a few steps down from VC Another rellie gor the MC three times in WW1 (MC and two bars) but it would be showing off to mention it! Merry

Heather Report 11 Apr 2006 14:53

Yes I suppose it would Merry - perish the thought. 2 MCs for a tablecloth stenciller? Ahh, I see you dont have a Marsh Looker then - huh! Well he was a Marsh Looker down in Sussex by the coast. I harboured (no pun) thoughts of a dashing customs man shooting smugglers - erm, its a shepherd watching out for animals drowning in the marshes. Or I could do a 'featherer' from the East End (hubby reckons that was something to do with 19th Century porn films but it was actually millinery).

What's a Marsh Looker?? Suppose he looked at marshes?? Interesting.......................................... M x

I have some tide waiters..........Thought they worked in a beachside cafe, but they are customs men! Merry

How come you lot get all the interesting folk and mine are all soooooooooo boring? never mistranscribed ,., always where you expect them to be, with the right children, no scandal, no filth, no skellies........ ........just a ploughed field in the middle of nowhere

Merry Monty

Merry Monty Report 11 Apr 2006 15:00

But expertly ploughed, I have no doubt! Merry

Heather Report 11 Apr 2006 15:00

Well at least they sounded content - didnt spend their time throwing themselves off benches and such, like my b***** Hansons. If they werent making cabinets they were jumping off them. Tide waiters - shouldnt they know when the rotten tide was coming in? Sounds like a scam for overtime to me.

Jess Bow Bag Report 11 Apr 2006 15:06

up and down in lines as straight as a die i guess- wouldnt dare to put a wiggle in!

Merry Monty

Merry Monty Report 11 Apr 2006 15:07

LOL Should we give them a points rating for rarity? Ag Lab = 1 point Urinal Cleaner 10 points Shoemaker 3 points Ah, but it would vary depending on where they lived...... Merry

Heather

Heather Report 11 Apr 2006 15:08

I honestly dont think a shoemaker merits 3 points Merry. ( I can see how your ancestors all managed to make good!) probably like your tide waiters.

Jess Bow Bag Report 11 Apr 2006 15:10

with bonus points for sudden / unusual death? I had two that fell off their horse ( one came home on its own!)

You can have my Dutch shoemaker turned undertaker, he's free to a loving (or unloving) home. He must have rarity value surely? I'm getting sick of him and his loose-moralled daughter lol
