Child Apprentices in America from Christ's Hospital, London 1617-1778This is an index of names of Child Apprentices in America from Christ's Hospital, London 1617-1778. For full details see the book Child Apprentices in America from Christ's Hospital, London 1617-1778 by Peter Coldham. The page numbers refer to the page in that book where the child apprentice immigrant ancestor will be found. The book is available in many libraries or it can be ordered through Amazon.com
Christ's Hospital was established in 1553 for the benefit of orphaned children
or those impverished or orphaned children made homeless. If they were legitimate
children of free men of the City of London, over four years of age and free
from obvious infirmity, they were to be educated and prepared either for entrance
to a university or apprenticeship to a trade. From the late 17th century, up
to 150 children were admitted annually to "Bluecoat School" on recommendation
of their parishes, and a further ninety or so under the terms of charitable
endowments. But as early as 1617 large numbers of these children left England
to serve apprenticeships in America. Beginning with those children apprenticed
to the Virginia Company in 1617, about 1,000 Christ's Hospital students left
England to take up such apprenticeships. The "Children's Registers" are housed
in the manuscript department of the London Guildhall, and it is from these that
Mr. Coldham extracted data on child emigrants. The entries are in chronological
order and in a slightly abbreviated form. Given are the name of the child, his
date of birth or baptism, date of admission, native parish, the name and occupation
of his father, date of discharge, the name of the person to whom he was apprenticed,
and the place in America where he was to serve his apprenticeship.
