[The year shown is in each case that of apprenticeship, except where the word "Free” occurs before it; then it means that the man’s name was recorded in the Minute Book as being admitted that year, although no record of his apprenticeship is contained in the Register; where he obtained admission by other means that apprenticeship, as some occasionally would by fine (i.e. purchase) or for services to the Company, the fact is noted in brackets.  Years are given according to the modern reckoning of the year from the 1st January, except that those of birth or baptism are given as certified (normally as reckoning the year from Ladyday).  If noted in the margin of the Register, the apprentice’s age or date of birth or baptism is here added in brackets after his Christian name.  a bundle of certificates of baptism of the mid-seventeenth century is still in the Company’s possession.  The notes in the Register have been checked with these, and any further details the latter contain as to place of baptism and mother’s name have been added.]
