Apprenticed to my Great, Great Grandfather.

by Chris Williams
(Basingstoke.)

My G, G, Grandfather was Josiah Williams, who kept an Ironmongery and coal delivery business in Chapel Street, Beaumaris.


I recently found details of an Apprentice he had:

John Griffith, son of Elizabeth Griffith (widow).

Apprenticeship Indenture for four years, from Jan. 2nd 1858.

Consideration money paid by the officers of the David Hughes Free Grammar School - £10.

I hope this is of interest to someone.

Apprenticed at Beaumaris
by: William

Dear Chris,

Thank you for writing in. My own cousin who lives in Harrogate is carrying out an investigation into our family, and there seems to be a lot of family association with the ferries across to Ireland from Holyhead and Whitehaven.

The good news we have discovered is that our grandfather was born in Contry Antrim, which means that we can apply for an Irish passport that will allow us all free movement into and about Europe. That's the only semi-political observation that I'll make on the matter.

Keep in touch.

William Gerwyn
