The apprentice system of training youth in useful vocations has a long history in Maryland and its administration has resulted in the formation of a body of records holding invaluable information for the genealogical researcher. This volume presents a summary of the apprentice cases in Cecil County, Maryland, from 1777 until 1805. The records contain the following information: the name of the apprentice, accompanied by any parental information found; the birth date of the apprentice; the age of the apprentice; the name of the Master and trade (if known); beginning date of the apprenticeship; and the length of time to be served. In many cases the location of the apprenticeship in terms of a political district is given. In some cases, the age of the apprentice determines when the contract is concluded. In the case of males, a contract was generally concluded when the apprentice attained the age of twenty-one. For females, the concluding condition was either attainment of age sixteen or marriage subject to the approval of the master. A full name index adds to the value of this work.
