Hi sans,

Joseph EYLES is "Gardener &c." - the etcetera means he was a gardener and also did other (usually related) activities, for example Gardener and Fruit Grower.

James BAKER (not BARTON!) is ostler &c.

Samuel CUZNER (not CUZITE!) is Hair Dresser & Perfumer &c., so maybe in addition to hairdressing and perfuming he also shaved beards or did similar things.

It definitely is not "to" but "&c."

If you have got enough space in the occupation column, leave the &c in as it does give an indication that the occupation listed is not the only thing the person was doing.

Petra
