I have a father and son in my family in the early 1800's whose occupations were listed as a "Road Surveyor". I can't seem to find any more information on this subject to find out about what it might of entailed. Anyone help?

In early 1800s, responsibility for the roads was still a Parish responsibility and surveying responsibility was allocated annually. This would not have been a full time occupation. See http://www.johnhearfield.com/History/Roads.htm
