Occupations.

Whilst researching my tree I came across the occupation HIGGLER - A person who haggles or bargains, an itinerant peddler! Although I am told that it more often referred to a carrier, someone who transported goods by horse and cart.

Occupations are listed in the census data at the time and of course are shown in marriage and death certificates.

A good website I came across for Victorian occupations really helped.
