Project Instructions This collection contains apprenticeship records primarily from the West Yorkshire area of London. The records detail indentures of persons to masters for a set period of time in order to learn a trade. Sometimes the name of a parent or parents are listed and the age of the apprentice. Most records include the terms of the indenture including clothing, room and board and treatment of the apprentice.

Only key records relating to indenture/apprenticeship. If you see any images relating to school records, registers of births or deaths, settlements and removals, etc. mark them as "Cover page, Section header, etc."
