    There may be some errors of transcription, both in the original and the subsequent copying to this list.. Wherever they are obvious they have been corrected..

    Note: an Occupation search for edge in the Sheffield Index found 0 results. This list is the results of a search for edge* (see below) - it found 281 entries and for *edge* , which found 542 entries. To it is added a list for *sickle* (62 entries).

    The lists include merchants, makers, manufacturers, forgers and grinders etc. Not all would have made billhooks, and the list is by no means complete blade pruning hooks, tea knives etc.
