The Apprentice Books of Bristol are very strongly linked with the Burgess Books of Bristol. It was only the Burgesses, in other words the Freemen of the City, who were entitled, moreover, obliged to take on Apprentices. Furthermore, serving an apprenticeship to a freeman was one of the ways in which an individual could in turn become a Freeman.
