Subject: Silk Throwster?
Date: Sat, 3 Mar 2001 06:59:00 EST
Does anyone know what a silk throwster did? I have noticed a number of them
on the 1861 Colchester Census. I know silk manufacturing went on in the town
at that time, and I don't think it's a spelling mistake as there appear to be
a few of them.
