Despite trawling the Internet & visiting the local library, I have been unable to find an answer to the following. I have ancestors whose occupations were shipwright (1850's) and master butcher (1890's). Would there have been guilds for these and would there be records somewhere ? .
Names: Joseph John WILLATS, shipwright, Poplar, Middlesex
John Henry DAVEY, master butcher, Gunnislake, Cornwall,
Any help would be very much appreciated.
