Updated on 2 June, 2012


This page contains records of apprentices in both Great and Little Snoring. There may be family names here that are useful to you.

Register of Duties Paid for Apprentices' Indentures, 1710-1811

This table lists the names of Gt & Lt Snoring apprentices and the money received for the payment on taxes for an apprentice’s indenture between 1710-1811.

The registers kept track of the money paid by masters of a trade to have an apprentice. The dates in the records are for when the tax was paid and may be some years after the apprenticeship, not when it started or finished.

Until 1752, the apprentice’s parents’ names were included, but afterward are rare. The records include:

  • Sum received
  • Name of master
  • Address of master
  • Trade
  • Name of apprentice
  • Date of articles of apprenticeship

The masters did not have to pay stamp duty on the apprentices that were assigned by the common or public charge of any township or parish. This means a lot of apprentices won’t be included in these records. Local or charity records are the best place to find records of these types of apprenticeships.
