Manchester Apprentices

Discover whether your ancestor was one of the 609 apprenticeships recorded here as being indentured to Manchester tradespeople, ranging in date from 1700-1849. Apprentices were not necessarily paupers, as is usually the case, and many were not originally from Manchester, which makes these records of much wider interest than you may at first realise.
