Scottish litigants, rebels and cautioners (1569-1578)
The Privy Council of Scotland exercised a superior judicial authority in the kingdom, and consequently received and dealt with a constant stream of petitions, as well as dealing with the internal security of the state. This register of the council from July 1569 to June 1578, in the reign of king James VI, was edited by John Hill Burton, Historiographer Royal for Scotland, and published under the direction of the Lord Clerk Register of Scotland in 1878. Some of the individuals mentioned are the complainants, those of whom they complained, and the sureties on both sides: at this period, some of the complainants are alleging serious attacks, often of a feuding nature. Many of the bonds entered into by the cautioners are promises to keep the peace towards such enemies. Failure to answer to the council when summoned was a serious contempt, leading to being denounced a rebel, with serious consequences. But 'horning' was also used in the pursuit of debts: there was no imprisonment for debt in Scotland, but a creditor could have an obstinate debtor ordered, in the sovereign's name, to pay what was due, failing which, the debtor could be put to the horn, denounced as a rebel, and imprisoned as a rebel.

National ArchivesMasters of apprentices registered in Scotland (1792)
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 1/66

National ArchivesOutstanding soldiers of the Rifle Brigade (The Prince Consort's Own) (1881-1901)
Each year the best soldiers of the brigade 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 rifle depot was at Winchester. There were four line battalions. The 1st battalion embarked for Bombay in 1880, and by 1885 was based at Belgaum. From 1885 to 1888 it served in Burma (adding "Burma, 1885-1887" to the regimental honours), returning to India before being sent (in 1894) to Hong Kong. In 1896 the 1st battalion was moved to Singapore, returning to England in 1898, and then being sent to South Africa ("South Africa, 1899-1902", "Defence of Ladysmith", "Relief of Ladysmith"). The 2nd battalion returned from Gibraltar to Ireland in 1880, moved to England in 1885 and was stationed at Aldershot; having served again in Ireland 1890 to 1895, it was sent from England to Malta in 1897, and to Crete and Egypt in 1898, taking part in the Soudan campaign ("Khartoum"). It was transferred to South Africa in 1899. The 3rd battalion was sent from Ireland to England in 1882, and in 1885 was at Aldershot; at the end of that year it was moved to Gibraltar; back to England in 1886; and embarked for Egypt 19 October 1887; went on to South Africa in 1888; and thence to India in 1889. In 1895 the 3rd battalion was serving at Rawal Pindee. The 4th battalion embarked for India 20 October 1873, and by 1885 was at Jhansi in Bengal; it was sent to Burma ("Burma, 1885-1887"), returned to England 27 January 1890, and in 1895 was at Aldershot. In 1896 the 4th battalion moved to Ireland, and in 1900 was sent to South Africa.
