Tuesday 12 J for JUSTICE of the PEACE, JUDGES and JOUSTER.

Justice of the Peace, (JP), would reside of local hearting for minor crimes.

The Oxford Dictionary of Law (2009), defines a Judge as A state offical with power to adjudicate on disputes and other matters brought before the courts for decision.  How many of our ancestors, stood before a judge?

What I hear you say is a JOUSTER??? Well if you find this occupation for one of your female ancestors, she had an interesting job. A Jouster is a travelling female fish seller.
