Cordwainer - Originally, a leather worker using high quality Cordovan
leather from Cordova/Cordoba in Spain for such things as harness, gloves
and riding boots. By the 19c it had reduced to a shoemaker - as
distinct from a cobbler who repaired shoes.

Bill Churchill

In 1851 Samuel is a cordwainer. I think 1841 reads shoemaker, which is
the same thing.
