Stationer: books?

 

Mercer: cloth

 

Milliner or Hatter : women's clothing and hats? Or is this a tricky question?

 

Tailor : men's clothing

 

Seamstress: a sewer who worked for a milliner or tailor?

 

Draper: curtains?

 

Fletcher: someone who made arrows (the feathers on the ends were called fletches)

 

Bowyer: someone who makes bows? (probably not, but since we just had fletcher, I thought I'd give it a shot) Laugh

 

Farrier: someone who shoed horses

 

Blacksmith: metalworker

 

Armourer: someone who made armor

 

Limner: a painter, esp. one who decorated manuscripts

 

Lawyer: the same as today, an attorney at law

 

Apothecary: medicine

 

Barber Surgeon: If you needed a tooth pulled or a broken arm set. Or a haircut or a shave.
