Introduction to Jane's Dictionary of Old Occupations

Click the thumbnail to view the ebook cover full size.

Welcome to my dictionary of old occupations, jobs, archaic trades and similar historical terms. In the course of my research work as a family tree professional I naturally come across many historic records showing job titles, terms or occupations which are no longer in common use. Having spent so many years working with census records I compiled my own glossary to help me with my family tree research.

I decided to turn my work into an online dictionary of old occupations, and make this information available through my Family Researcher website as an aid to private individuals who are researching their own ancestors. The dictionary has been growing since 2009 and is larger than most free online resources for old trades and occupations, having well over two thousand entries.

If you have details of an occupational definition which is missing then please contact me with the info and I will be delighted to add it to the site.

Ebook now available!

That's right! The Dictionary of Old Occupations is now available as an ebook. So, if you fancy a copy to use as an offline reference resource then follow these links. My dictionary is available in Kindle and other formats. Makes a handy reference for history buffs, family tree enthusiasts, and creative writers looking to give their work authenticity.

A-Z index of old occupations

The Worst Jobs in History by Tony Robinson

As befits the man behind Baldrick, Tony Robinson has uncovered life in the underbelly of history. Whether it's swilling out the crotch of a knight's soiled armour after the battle of Agincourt, risking his neck in the rigging of HMS Victory, or as 'Groomer of the Stool' going to places where none of Henry VIII's six wives would venture, Tony endures the worst jobs imaginable to get to the bottom (sometimes literally) of the story. From the Roman invasion to the reign of Queen Victoria, Tony has met the challenge of seeking out the worst jobs of each era.

Richly illustrated with artwork, photographs and diagrams, "The Worst Jobs in History" really gets into the grime of how life was for ordinary people, and provides a vivid alternative (and fairly disgusting) history of Britain.
