Hi Richard,

Yes, one snippet leads to another, which is why I always recommend that
listers respond on list as you have done.

The trade of Thomas JENKINS wasn't mentioned in George MARMAN's Bristol
Burgess entry, but I looked to see if there was anyone called Thomas
JENKINS who was a hooper and there was.

Thomas JENKINS, hooper, was made a Bristol Burgess on 12th. August 1734,
his qualification being apprentice to John TYLER, hooper.

This entry is in the Bristol Burgess Index produced by B & A FHS on CD.

I don't know. Other listers who have pursued Bristol Burgesses might be
able to tell you.

Rarish. There were some people called MARMAN and MARMON in the 18th century
in Bristol, but not that many. Some of these were in Westbury-on-Trym.
