There's a web site that list a lot of old professions http://rmhh.co.uk/occup/index.html

Not sure about a crisper of cottons, but I'm pretty sure the second one is cotton beetler. It's often transcribed as butler in error. The beetler runs a machine that embosses textile. I have several of them in my family as well.
