The Family of JOHN REYNOLDS

JOHN REYNOLDS occupation HAWKER, m. 1828, in ST EDWARDS CHURCH CAMBRIDGE, ANN PARR.  In 1828 they lived at Staffordshire place and John was described as a labourer, they moved to east road where he was a cook for Christ College.  It was not until 1833 that he was described as a grocer. He lived at East Road Cambridge until 1843. I have not been able to trace him since, and up to this moment no death has been found. His son William's marriage certificate describes John as a fruit hawker.  So I imagine him travelling about with horse and cart selling his wares. He was later a confectioner.
