Apprentices

The details below are transcribed from a database published by Ancestry.com called the Register of Duties Paid for Apprentices' Indentures, 1710-1811, which is derived from the Board of Stamps: Apprenticeship Books, Series IR 1; The National Archives of the UK.

The records concern the tax received from Masters for having an apprentice between 1710-1811. The dates the payments were made do not necessarily correlate with the period of the apprenticeship as the tax may have been paid at a later date.  Tax was not paid on all apprenticeships so local records should also be consulted.
