Page 2230 is taken from the poor book dated 1730 to 1769 and is part of a table of estate and occupiers who took apprentices as part of their poor law obligations which were not popular. The ‘rules’ were specified in 1754 as documented in page 2227 and follows on from page 2229. The matrix continues on sheet 2231.
 The reference to Bickersfield is a bit of an anomaly. No other references to that name has yet been found.
