Suffolk householders (1674)
Hearth tax was raised by assessing each householder on the number of chimneys to the dwelling. This provided a simple way to make a rough judgment as to the value of the dwelling: paupers were issued exemption certificates, but they too were listed at the end of each return. The returns were made by township, grouped by hundred. A complete copy of the hearth tax return for each shire was sent to the Exchequer: this is the return for Suffolk for Lady Day (25 March) 1674 (E 179/257/14) as printed in 1905 as Suffolk Green Book no xi, vol. 13. The numbers given are the numbers of hearths: where two or more people are grouped together with one number, it may be assumed that they were heads of separate households sharing a single building with that number of chimneys.

National ArchivesMasters of apprentices registered in Scotland (1796)
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 name, 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. The indentures themselves can date from a year or two earlier than this return. (The sample entry shown on this scan is taken from a Bristol return. Each entry has two scans, the other being the facing page with the details of the indenture, length of service, and payment of duty.) IR 1/68

The Scotch Greys at Waterloo (1815)
The muster roll of the officers and men of the 2nd or Royal North British Regiment of Dragoons who fought at Waterloo, 18 June 1815, and survived. Those wounded have 'w.' placed after their name. The 1st, 2nd and 6th Dragoons formed the second brigade of cavalry under Major-General Sir William Ponsonby (killed in action); the cavalry as a whole being commanded by Lieutenant-General the Earl of Uxbridge (wounded). The 2nd Dragoons (Scotch Greys) amounted to 391 men, under Lieutenant-Colonel J. I. Hamilton (killed in action). 'The Royal Dragoons, the Scotch Greys, and Inniskillings, General Ponsonby at their head, dispersed the enemy to a great distance, and precipitated themselves with unexampled boldness on the batteries at the right of the 1 corps, put the cannoneers to the sword and dismounted 30 pieces. But the cuirassiers of Lt. Gen. Milhaud, having advanced towards the chaussee to support the attack of infantry which had failed, the brigade of G. M. Travere from one side, and the 4th regiment of Lancers coming from the other, fell at the same time on these brave dragoons, who, not being able to resist this terrible shock, were cut to pieces and repulsed with considerable loss. The brave General Ponsonby was killed by the Lancers, boldly attempting to join the greater body of his brigade, from which he found himself separated.'

National ArchivesBritish merchant seamen (1835-1840)
At this period, the foreign trade of ships plying to and from the British isles involved about 150,000 men on 15,000 ships; and the coasting trade about a quarter as many more. A large proportion of the seamen on these ships were British subjects, and so liable to be pressed for service in the Royal Navy; but there was no general register by which to identify them, so in 1835 parliament passed a Merchant Seamen's Registration Bill. Under this act a large register of British seamen was compiled, based on ships' crew lists gathered in British and Irish ports, and passed up to the registry in London. A parliamentary committee decided that the system devised did not answer the original problem, and the original register was abandoned after less than two years: the system was then restarted in this form, with a systematic attempt to attribute the seamen's (ticket) numbers, and to record successive voyages. The register records the number assigned to each man; his name; age; birthplace; quality (S = seaman, &c.); and the name and official number of his ship, with the date of the crew list (usually at the end of a voyage). Most of the men recorded were born in the British Isles, but not all. The system was still very cumbersome, because the names were amassed merely under the first two letters of surname; an attempt was made to separate out namesakes by giving the first instance of a name (a), the second (b), and so on. During 1840 this series of ledgers was abandoned, and a new set started with names grouped together by surname. BT 112/6
