You'll need to contact the local record office. Some apprenticeship records have survived, but not all. Which area did the person live?

There are some apprenticeship records on: www.originsnetwork.com There are two sets: "London Apprenticeship Abstracts 1442-1850" and "Apprentices of Great Britain 1710-1774" There is more information about the records available on the site - there is no need to be a member to see this or do a basic search, but if you want to look at the records it costs £7.50 for 72 hours access.

It might also help to know what trade he was apprenticed to. Some trade guild records might also survive.

Thanks everyone. he was a Joiner/Carpenter. Manchester area. Though he did purport to be a dealer in cotton goods occasionally. I think that was his moonlighting job.
