Britain, Country Apprentices 1710-1808

What was your family trade? Discover your ancestor in the registers from the Board of Stamps. The registers recorded the tax paid for each indenture for an apprentice. The average apprenticeship was seven years. That is seven years of family history you can reveal through these records, as well as your ancestor’s parent’s name, his/her master and the profession they chose. The registers record apprenticeships from the whole of Great Britain.
