295. Welsh Idiosyncrasies - Nickname Series (15)

My great grandmother's second husband's name was Richard Edwards and he worked as a sinker in the colliery so he was known as Dick the Sinker.  My husband's name is Tom Williams (Little Tom) whose father is Tom Williams and he worked in Oakdale colliery and his nickname was Tom Tinker.
