HomeBromsgrove Apprentices Index

Bromsgrove Apprentices

This section lists apprenticeship records relating to Bromsgrove based on documents held at the Worcestershire Archives and Archaeology Service (The Hive).  It lists around 1500 appenticeships entered into with employers within the Bromsgrove jurisdiction from 1637 to 1813. Bromsgrove-born apprentices indentured to masters elsewhere are not listed but may be included in the larger Worcestershire Apprenticeship Index held at the Hive (a hardcopy of this index can be downloaded here).

The numbering denotes the apprenticeship papers found in the parish chest of St John's Church, Bromsgrove.  The entries with no numbers are the names from the Churchwardens account book, both of which are now at The Hive.  Where names are in brackets there is a discrepancy between the name from the parish chest and name in the account book.

These transcripts have been kindly produced by volunteer Bob Lampitt with assistance from Jenny Townshend and Emma Townshend.

Using the Search Facility

To search these records enter search terms in the 'Filter' box below.

The easiest way is to search by name (e.g. Smith). This will return entries for both apprentices and masters with that surname. The filter accepts partial spellings (at least three characters) but not wildcards. So, for instance, Smi will find 'Smith' and 'Smithson'.

You may also search by year but combinations of filters may not be used.
