Unoccupied at night

Not, as you might think, the state of premises, but the occupation of the Parish Clerk of Cannock in Staffordshire as recorded in the 1891 census.


William Devey’s full occupation was recorded as, Parish Clerk, Stationer, Bookseller and Bank Officer unoccupied at night”.

Mind you, he was probably responsible for the local census so could get away with that.
