Census Occupations - Brass Founder

Below are some resources I recommend if any of your ancestors in your family tree were brass founders.


Description: Someone who cast brass, melting it down and making items from moulds such as bells, harnesses, coach fittings and buckles. It would have involved working with extreme heat, often giving a permanent colour to the founder's face. In addition there was the extreme hazard of dealing with molten brass on a daily basis, not to mention lifting heavy metal objects. See also: Brass Cutter, Brass Dresser, Brass Finisher, Brass Knob Maker.
