Lincolnshire / Millin to Miller
« on: Sunday 24 July 05 18:54 BST (UK)  »
Hi all my 5 times gt grandfather is listed in 1851 census in Croft as Richard Miller aged 82 born in Skegness.
The only baptism in Skegness around the calculated birth year is for a Richard Millins son of Richard and Mary
In subsequent years more Millin(s) are baptsed to same parents, suddenly the name then changes to Miller.

I am 99% certain that I am dealing with the same family but would like some opinions as to whether Millin may become Miller for some unknown reason.

Hi all my gt grandfather served in KOYLI as a private during ww1 in November 1914 he was captured. Later on in war he escaped but was recaptured.

my question is on his 1914 Star medal he was awarded a Rose & Clasp could this be for his escape?

The Common Room / Poor Law Apprenticeship Indenture
« on: Tuesday 19 July 05 19:02 BST (UK)  »
Hi all my 5 times gt grandfather was apprenticed out by the poor law as a carpenter in 1790 this was for a term of 3 years
in 1790 he would have been 21 and as far as I am aware apprenticeships ended at age of 24 though I may be wrong
my question: is the age of 21 a common onr for apprentices?
all the best
