I was looking at Matthew Greer's Marriage certificate which I wrote about yesterday. And I was trying to read his father's occupation. Here is a the part of the marriage certificate that has that:>
It looks like Rank on Professor Farmer. So does that mean he is a Professor and a Farmer or a Professor of Farming. Or perhaps it says he is a Professional Farmer. If so, how does that differ from an ordinary farmer (see Thomas Allinghams's entry).
If anyone wants to see the whole certificate, here it is. Because my scanner was smaller than the paper,it is in 2 overlapping pages. Oddly, the last column is not supposed to be occupation but that seems to be what is there.
Any suggestions welcome.
