Occupation Interests / Re: Would an 18th century apprentice have married?

It say's here that Sheffield cutlers required a minimum of 7 years apprenticeship.;; https://www.sheffieldrecordsonline.org.uk/data/about_cutlers.html
Although 18 years seems rather excessive, especially being that the master would have to provide food and lodging during that time, Oh, and the apprentice was not to marry in that time.

The name might be Sealy, which occurs in the area. There is a marriage in Malmesbury 13-Oct-1814 of a Aaron Sealy of Corston to Ann Scott of Corston.
Maybe DNA might provide some clues, or even an answer.

The primary reason to wear a mask is to stop the spread of the virus, protecting the wearer is secondary.
Some sacrifices are required of individuals in any society, for the greater good of that society. Wearing a mask and refraining from close contact is surely a small one.
