What do you do again…?

On my hunt to flesh out a fantasy city, I need to people it.  I need trades and jobs from the past, which will make it sound more authentic.  Here are a few I’ve come across in my hunt:

Malkin: A medieval female kitchen worker.

Skep Maker: A maker of beehives.

Puggera: One–usually a child–who treads clay into paste.

Cutty: A wanton and/or short woman.

Lidster: A dyer

Fistic: A bare knuckle fighter.

And the one I’d most like to be: Concher: One who smoothes chocolate.
