When researching Gaskins ancestors from Gloucestershire I came across the following insolvency notice from 1841:

The Court for Relief of Insolvent Debtors Saturday 4the December 1841

Henry Gaskins, late of Bishop's Cleeve-Hill, Gloucestershire, Quarryman and Hallier, an insolvent, No. 57,928 C; Samuel Lediard assignee



Also from Tues January 11th 1842:

THE creditors of Henry Gaskins, formerly of Woodmancott,
and late of Cleeve-hill, in the parish of Bishop's
Cleeve, in the county of Gloucester, Quarryman, Hallier,
Lime Burner, and Dealer in Gravel, a Prisoner in the Gaol
of Gloucester, are requested to meet the assignee of the said
insolvent's estate and effects, on Thursday the 27th day of
January instant, at three o'clock in the afternoon precisely,
at the George Hotel, situate in High-street, Cheltenham


On other records (census, baptism & marriage records around that time) he is always described as a Quarryman or labourer. I can only assume part of the job of a quarryman would be to haul the heavy stone out of the quarries for onward processing but the term "hallier" is used in the legal notices
