List of 402 masters/apprentices at Melrose 1743-1804

I’ve just put online a list of 201 pairs (402 names) of masters and apprentices in Melrose parish, mostly from the late 18th century. See the list page for information about these records. The list is chronological, allowing changing trade patterns over time to be studied. For example these records reveal that Melrose had a clockmaker in the 1770s.
