National ArchivesMasters of Apprentices registered at Liverpool in Lancashire (1719-1721)
Apprenticeship indentures and clerks' articles were subject to a 6d or 12d per pound stamp duty: the registers of the payments usually give the master's trade, address, and occupation, and the apprentice's father's name and address, as well as details of the date and length of the apprenticeship. There are central registers for collections of the stamp duty in London, as well as returns from collectors in the provinces. These collectors generally received duty just from their own county, but sometimes from further afield. Because of the delay before some collectors made their returns, this register includes indentures and articles from as early as 1718. (The sample entry shown on this scan is taken from a Norfolk return)

National ArchivesOutstanding soldiers of the Connaught Rangers (1881-1901)
Each year the best soldiers of the regiment were chosen for long service and good conduct medals. This register gives rank, name, regimental number, and date of recommendation. (The sample scan is from the East Surrey regiment). The register is essentially a register of recommendations, annotated with details of the issue of the medals. Where no gratuity accompanied the medal, the entry is marked 'W. G.' (without gratuity); where, for one reason or another, the medal was not issued, the entry is marked 'N. S.' (not sanctioned) and struck through. The regiment was based on Regimental District No. 88 - Galway. The 1st battalion embarked for the Cape of Good Hope 15 June 1877, and was transferred to India in 1879. In 1885 it was stationed at Chaubuttia. Moving to Aden in 1890, it returned from there to England 14 December 1891. The battalion removed to Ireland in 1897, back to England in 1898, and to South Africa in 1899, gaining the honours "South Africa, 1899-1902" and "Relief of Ladysmith". The 2nd battalion returned from Natal in 1882, and by 1885 was stationed at Fermoy; 13 July 1889 it embarked for Malta, and was sent on from there to Egypt, and to India.
