A Carman drove a horse-drawn vehicle, usually in towns, collecting or
delivering goods for a railway company, firm of carriers or other business
firm. A
bonded carman was a cartage contractor licensed by H.M. Customs to  convey
dutiable goods, duty being unpaid, from the dock, quay, or warehouse  into
a bonded
warehouse, or from a bonded warehouse to a ship for re-export.  He would
have been accompanied by a customs watcher.

The Carmen's  Company is a guild of the City of London, reflecting the
transport industry  in all its modes, but particularly surface transport -
road and
rail, goods  and passenger.

Regards Stan  Mapstone
