I have been reading the History of Highworth (in 3 parts). Not much about the Brinds-- only a John Brind in 1675 a shoemaker, in 1678 and 1680 a churchwarden and in 1685 a Henry Brind proved his sister's will-- Elizabeth Bayley, wife of Edward. Highworth is made up of Eastrop-Westrop & Highworth. You asked how one could afford apprenticeship.Perhaps, my finding could help "Broad Town Charity Apprenticeships" paid for boys from all over Wilts only qualification being that the boys must have been born in Wilts and his parents were married-- Thomas Brind to John Church, 27 Nov 1809,nominated by Rev Dr Popham £10. I could not find a John Church-- but the Rev Dr Popham had his church at Chilton Foliat from 1778 to 1815-- perhaps my Thomas meet Ann there?
Do you know the birth of John Brind who married Sarah Butcher? Can't find him in Highworth P.R.

Thanks for your letter, with the Brind 'wills'. This makes the death of Henry's wife Elizabeth wrong. She must be the one that died in 1742. I would love to think that the nephew John and his children were in Highworth. Could be John shoemaker and Henry butcher and at some time will fit in with my Brinds. I feel that Thomas fits in John family and they forgot to get him baptised. I have written to Wiltshire Family History Society with this-- hope for a reply in the next quarter.I have enclosed a few bits that I found that might be interesting to you. I don't know if you have them. I have been up to the Guildhall Library to look up State Paper, for my Dixon line-- looking for Joseph Dixon Custuman (MY NOTE: Costerman?) in 1714 at Deal, Kent, to find where he was born-- no luck. Also looked up the Times index for Richard Brind ,as my father told me "he went bankrupt". This has not been proved. Also enclosed some details from Enfield Library.
I'll close now, and get this letter in the post, when I go shopping so you should get it before the weekend.
A fine English coin scale, c.1751-1774, within a cut from solid mahogany case, the top incised with two hearts, the interior lid with applied printed labels, inscribed 'Made by Willm Brind, in Carey Lane, in Foster Lane, Cheapside, London' and weight label, with five matching coin weights. Portuguese piece, moidore, ½ and ¼ moidore, and 1/8 port piece, part of a long set for the eleven coins current in Britain, beam 12.7cm William Brind scale maker (working 1751-1774), trained by Samuel Read, had eight apprentices, two of whom became masters. He had two shops simultaneously (Carey Lane & Haymarket). In 1774, Brind had stolen from his shop a showcase containing seven wood boxes (of scales?) and four cocks (taps for barrels, normally made by scale makers). An undated record of 'accidental death' states that a William Brind fell down a hatchway and against some iron.
