What does "do" mean?

My great grandfather was on the Oriana in 1924, sailing from Peru to Liverpool. The record states "do" for occupation. Does it mean declined to offer?

Also, in a notice of probate upon his death, it says his name and then "of Peruvian House 4 Windsor Terrace Dipton..." ; does this mean that the notice is stating that his residence was in Peru, but that the other part was his address in Dipton, Durham? They crammed a lot of information in that obituary with no punctuation in between, so it's not apparent.
