Smithdale 24Jan2016 .

The 1563 the Statute of Apprentices forbade anyone to enter a trade who had not served an apprenticeship.  Some modification to this Statute occurred but it remained on the statute books until 1814.  Prior to 1710 nothing exists for Apprentices in the archives in London. 
From 1710 - 1811 The Government decided to use the system to generate some revenue, hence the Stamp Duty records from Inland Revenue. Duty was payable by the master at the rate of 6d for every £1 under £50 that he received for taking on the apprentice and 1/- for every £1 above that sum. The deadline for payment was one year after the expiry of the indenture.
