Question:  In a probate file from 1746 in Cheshire, England I find my ancestor's brother was a "nob maker". What did this occupation do for work?  Is this a form of wood working? 


Answer:  This occupation actually was another name for a Colonial Wig maker according to my colleague at Colonial Williamsburg.
