A number of Blacketts and their descendants have been blacksmiths. Few, however, carried on the trade to such an advanced age as Walker Blackett who is believed to have been still working as a blacksmith and farmer in Witton Park, Co. Durham up to his death in 1938, just a few months before his 84th birthday.
