  1. London after the Plague and the Great Fire

    A boy born in Barking, Essex in 1662 became a London apprentice in 1678. While the age of 16 may not stop someone starting an apprenticeship, it was not a typical start age. So, I thought about what was going on while he was growing up. 1665 and the Plague, then 1666 and the Great Fire. They...

  3. Apprenticeship start and finish dates.

    Hi there I have been studying the UK, Registers of duties for apprenticeships 1710-1811 on Ancestry, and pretty much got most of it worked out. The one thing that is getting me is the dates on the right side of the first page. Do you know if this date is relating to the start or the finish of...

  4. Apprentice Sailmaker?

    I wonder if someone can help me...? I'm descended from Thomas Garnham of Boston, Lincs who was born either in 1780/81 (we can't find his baptism and therefore cannot prove who his father was). We know he was a sailmaker at the time of his marriage in 1805, and have been looking (without success)...

  5. "The Genealogist" Apprenticeship transcripts

    After signing up to "The Genealogist" for a trial period, I discovered that they had "Occupational" records which I searched on, with a subsection of "Apprenticeship" records, however I could not see any actual details or reference of where this material originated from (one thing that really...

  6. journeyman

    In 1871 my great grandfather was a 16 year old painter alongside his father. Married in 1877 (I'm waiting on certificate to see his occupation). The 1881 census has him as 'plasterer'. On the birth registration in 1889 of his daughter, my great grandfather was described as 'plasterer...

  7. millinery apprentice

    I believe my 4 x great grandmother Sarah Farley was apprenticed to Mary A Southard of Oxford Street as a milliner in 1798. I've been lucky enough to find her trade card in an image collection from the British Museum. Any ideas how I may find out more? My understanding is that there wasn't a...

  8. What does 'Payment Date' mean?

    I've only just found databases relating to appentices and apprenticeships on line so I'm a bit lost at what I'm looking at. My ancestor was Thomas Garnham and although I haven't yet managed to pin down birth or death dates for him I do know he married Phoebe/Phebe Paskin on 21.9.1806 in...

  12. Question "DD" in Apprenticeship Books (IR1)

    I've had a bit of a look in the Board of Stamps Apprenticeship Books (IR1) which have recently gone online at Ancestry, and I'm puzzled by the abbreviation "DD" which appears at the start of some entries. The place where I first spotted it was the apprenticeship of a George DANIEL to my ancestor...

  13. Keeping it in the family?

    I was looking for some people in the Apprentice records and it occurred to me that there were no references (that I could see) to a son being apprenticed to his father. Did the father avoid paying the tax? Would their sons (tailors in this case) be recognised by the trade, as qualified? Have I...

  14. Apprentice Stonemason

    My ancestor Edward Jackson b 9th Jan 1850, rastrick, Yorkshire, was a stonemason, I know he was a 'scholar' aged 10 in the 1861 Census. Sometime after that, and before 1871 (when he was 21 and working as a stonemason)he must have had an apprenticeship. Is there likely to be information of that,...

  16. Minimum age for apprenticeship

    I have just received a copy of a settlement examination in which it is stated that a boy aged 6 1/2 years old (in 1783) was placed in an apprenticeship by the Overseers of the Poor. Quite apart from any child welfare considerations, I find it hard to imagine that at that age he would have been able...
