On the 1870 birth record of my grandfather, John Spelman, his father was
listed as a draper's porter. In 1888 when the youngest son was born he was
listed as a draper. Are there any directories during those years that list
workers? I would imagine there are for owners, but I thought I would take the
chance and ask about workers. I suppose there is the off-chance that by 1888,
he could have owned a shop, but more than likely he worked in the shop instead
of delivering. Thanks for any help. Jan
