UK Sedgwicks - Library - Guilds and Apprentices

In 17th century London, membership of one of the Guilds was essential to those wishing to succeed. Apprenticeship was normally for a period of seven years and then an individual became a Freeman of the City of London and was entitled to call himself Citizen. By the latter part of the 17th century, most Guilds included members who earnt their living by a different trade. An apprentice was a single man and many married once they were made Freemen.
