FHSC Seminars: Apprentice Records by Richard Holt

Richard Holt BA (Hons) studied Primary Education at Greenwich University and holds Qualified Teacher Status. He worked in a number of schools as a teacher and senior leader prior to becoming a professional genealogist and establishing his own research business. This talk will look at the practice of apprenticing young men to learn a trade which was first recorded in twelfth and thirteenth century London. It gradually spread to many other towns and cities, and became subject to regulation. Provision for apprenticeship was also made under the Poor Laws. Parish overseers could bind children as young as six or seven to serve as apprentices until they were adults. Such bindings were supposed to ensure that children were taken care of at little cost to the parish. This talk will help to familiarise you with apprenticeship records, and will explain how to find them. It will also give you a basic understanding of what being an apprentice meant.
