Borough Apprentice Records 1724 - 1882
These Registers record apprenticeships served only to Burgesses of Nottingham in the Borough itself. They were kept because the serving of a Burgess was one of the means of becoming a Burgess and they finish is 1882 when the Nottingham Corporation Act put an end to this method of qualification.
Lenton, Radford, Basford, Bulwell & Sneinton became part of Nottingham in 1877 and so apprenticeships served to Burgesses in these areas will figure in the registers only from this date.
Bilborough, Wollaton, Clifton & Wilford were incorporated into Nottingham in the 20th Century and so apprenticeships served in these parishes will not appear in the Registers at all.
