Certificate of Registration 1844 for the famous ex american whaler Truelove, together with an extract copy of an 1813 certificate and two relevant letters. The Truelove was constructed in Philadelphia in 1764, but was captured by the British in the American War of Independence and converted to a whaling ship in 1784 registered at Hull. It made over 80 voyages catching 500 whales and was the last pure sail ship in Baltic whaling fleets. It took relief supplies in the search for the Franklin expedition, during which time she was threatened with sinking due to pack ice several times but was the only unharmed ship of the twenty trapped by ice in Melville Bay. Captained for seventeen years by John Parker, who captained various whalers for 27 years, and who campaigned on behalf of the Inuit of Baffin Island, bringing a couple to Britain. Truelove changed to a general cargo ship in 1868 and in 1873 visited Philadelphia to celebrate her 109th ''birthday''. She was moored as a hulk in the Thames until broken up circa 1888 after 124 years of service. The Certificate of Registration, Hull, 1844, recites its origins in Philadelphia and that it had been previously registered at Hull in 1831, that John Parker was Master and gives a detailed description of its size, burthen and characteristics. The inside pages record changes in ownership and of Masters, including a reappearance of Parker in 1860/61 and William Barron (1861/62) who had started as an apprentice on the Truelove in 1849 and published a book 'Old Whaling Days' in 1895.

A 1793 Poor Law Parish indenture for an apprenticeship in husbandry, Little Dorrington, Devon. At this time State support for poor children was controlled by the Act of 1601, which had placed the burden on each parish, requiring it to elect Overseers of the Poor with power to levy a local poor rate. For children, the simple solution was that the parish officials - the Overseers and the Churchwardens - had absolute power to decide whether parents could maintain their children and if not, the duty to remove the child to the care and cost of any parishioner they may select who in the officials' absolute opinion, fell within the categories of clergyman, gentleman, farmer or trader. The means to do so was this indenture, subject to the consent of the local justices of peace. Until 1816 there was no minimum age, (which was then fixed at nine), and unlike voluntary trade apprenticeships and despite the wording, there was no requirement to teach a trade. Printed and manuscript document with various signatures and wax seal, apporx size 21 x 33cm.
