Just to clarify, the Christ's Hospital records on Olive Tree are extracted from Peter Coldham's 1990 publication, which lists children apprenticed from the school to America during the period 1617-1778. For those who subscribe to Ancestry, the book is also searchable there, under Immigration & Travel.
Christ's Hospital has a huge archive. The original records are split between London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) and the school itself (now in Horsham, Sussex). Most of the older historical records are at LMA.
