Apprenticed to my Great, Great Grandfather.
by Chris Williams
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.
