Here's a male lacemaker - the apprenticeship probably lasted until age 21.
Apprentice - Francis Cole, 13 now of, Tiverton, lacemaker, by, consent of
his father, Francis Cole.
A quick look at the A2A files will reveal many of them across the country.
It is a giant leap however for your guy from mariner to lacemaker unless he
was injured or had a chronic seasickness.
