Norfolk: Tuttington

Apprentice Indentures: 1833

Tuttington Overseers apprenticed some of the poor children of the Parish. If the parents/guardians could not afford the cost then often the Parish covered the cost.

This is from the Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference PD 401/39 and microform MF943/5] containing the Apprentice Indentures (1833) and this transcription has been condensed from the 2 original forms. This indenture is the only one available for this parish.
