Dates are 1759, 1826-1838, 1867. Many, but not all, of these indentures relate to apprenticeships financed by various charities (e.g., Alderman Anguish's Charity, Alderman King's Benefaction, Briggs' Charity, Boys' Hospital). The indentures were submitted to the Town Clerk for enrolment and were never reclaimed. They are endorsed with the date and the number of enrolment, thus (by the way) indicating that the enrolment system in the City Court continued until at least 1867. Unfortunately the post-1749 apprenticeship registers have not survived.
