Glanville Masters and Apprentices

Duties had to be paid by Masters for their Apprentices.

The records recorded for the payment were not necessarily dated at the commencement of the apprenticeship.

Generally apprentices were in their teen years, and masters not under the age of 25.

Unidentified Glanvilles

From the registers held at the National Archives at Kew (registers of the money received for the payment on taxes for an apprentice’s indenture) I have, where possible identified the people and updated the information into Ghosts of Glanvilles, accessed from Jay's Genes (see Navigation on the left).

Those I have yet to identify are listed below, the records cover 100 years from 1710, and the early records list the names (usually) of the parent of the Apprentice.

Information in square braces [   ] thus is added by myself to clarify as I transcribed the following from the original handwritten registers.
