H0101 Agricultural Labourers v1.0
H0101 Agricultural Labourers v1.0
Old Occupations; an insight into the harsh working and living conditions they had to endure.

Census records show a large proportion of rural workers occupations are recorded as Agricultural Labourer (‘Ag Lab'), ‘Farm Labourer' or ‘Farm Servant. There are no official records before 1851. In 1834 the Poor Law was introduced to help Agricultural Labourers and to find out aspects of their lively hood (e.g. accommodation, wages, working conditions etc). However, it took about a hundred years to bring Agricultural Labourers out of poverty.

H0102 Glove Makers v1.0
H0102 Glove Makers v1.0
Old Occupations; an insight into the importance of the industry in Great Torrington and the surrounding villages.

Trade directories for the eightteenth century highlight the size of the glove making industry and the large number of female operatives in the manufacturing towns and surrounding countryside. The industry not only had the respectability that comes with long establishments, but a universality that touched most of the glove making towns. Outworking villages and townswomen drawing work from the cutting out shops in the nineteenth century was typical of the industry, and found in the important gloving centres of Worcester, Yeovil in Somerset and Great Torrington in North Devon.

H0103 Merchant Mariners v1.1
H0103 Merchant Mariners v1.1
Old Occupations; an insight into ancestors who were Mariner's, Sailor's and Seaman.

Mariners would most likely have been a merchant seaman. A sailor would most probably have served in the Royal Navy; and a seaman would have served in the merchant navy. This distinction is by no means absolute; both the Royal Navy and the Merchant Navy use the terms ordinary seaman and able seaman to denote a seafarer's competence.
