One of my ancestors was described as being a 'lawn weaver' on parish records and census in the 1840s - 1850s. Does anyone know what this was please?

Lawn is a lightweight fabric, so I'd guess your ancestor was producing this.

I'd love it to be something to do with gardening though :D

That's interesting. He was in Staffordshire - not an area particularly known for weaving of any type.
