I believe this term would cover numerous trades.
I have been amazed by the website blacksmiths.mygenwebs.com
This has a Devon section split into 4 by surname.
There is a listing for John Perriam a blacksmith in cullompton in 1774.
Perhaps he was related to Philip. There are many similar surnames listed. Maybe search outside of devon for the surname , he may have trained elsewhere.
The site also covers other trades. Good luck in your search .
