Just a thought. Perhaps the occupation 'Whipper In' was what we would know
as a 'Truant Officer.'

I know someone out there has a list of definitions and may have the answer
to this one.......Occupation is listed as "Whipper In" and his wife as a
Whipper In's wife!

Am I correct in saying that an Annuitant is receiving an annuity.......ie
annual income of some sort from somewhere and if her two eldest daughters
are Annuitants daughters they also receive some or part of this
income........younger children just listed as scholars etc. as per usual.

Best regards
Jane, Ottawa
