"Apprenticeship registers in the City Archives show that William Tarrant son of Hesthar (sic) Tarrant late of the City of Oxford deceased was apprenticed to Samuel Moore, an Oxford cordwainer, for seven years from the 28th April 1802. He subsequently became a freeman of the city on 8th May 1812. Freedom of a borough before the Municiple Corporations Act of 1835 rarely had the honorary connotations that we know today; rather it provided a license to trade, the right to vote, and access to other privileges. Freedom was usually obtained through apprenticeship, as in William Tarrant's case, or by patrimony (ie. being the son of a freeman)."

Married Ann EVANS on 23 Dec 1810 at Saint Mary-St Marylebone Road, Saint Marylebone, London, ref IGI. Ann Evans was born 29 Jun 1794 at Drayton, Berkshire, dau of Joseph Evans and Hannah (ref IGI); see later confirmation with son Josiah's baptism that this is the correct one. This makes her married at the age of 16. The marriage was by Banns, they were Bachelor and Spinster of the parish, and married 23 Dec 1810; witnesses were William & Mary Sutch and John Appleton [no connection known] (ref Ancestry London marriages).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Possible derivation of Joseph Evans and Hannah
Joseph EVANS married 9 Aug 1789 at Steventon, Berkshire to Hannah GRAINGER (ref IGI, M019771).
They may have had the following children:
1. Margaret EVANS born 21 May 1790, bap 20 Jun 1790 at Ind. Upper Meeting House, Abingdon, Berkshire (ref IGI, C035741). (Presbyterian)
2. Ann EVANS bap 5 Aug 1792 at Peasemore, Berkshire (ref IGI, P018441)
3. Ann EVANS born 19 Jun 1794 at Drayton, Berkshire (ref IGI, C016781). (See above)
------------------------------
There are two possibilities for Hannah Grainger in Berkshire:
1. Hannah GRAINGER bap 15 Jul 1764 at Steventon, Berkshire, dau of John Grainger & Mary (ref IGI P019771);
2. Ann GRAINGER bap 1 Jun 1766 at Steventon, Berkshire, dau of William Grainger & Mary (ref IGI P019771)
Drayton, Steventon and Abingdon are quite close together, and Peasemore is not too far away.
Further research is required.

On the 18th of January, between seven and eight o'clock the prisoner called, and stopped twenty minutes - I have known him twelve months - he gave me 1 s., and sent me to fetch some liquor; I refused, but afterwards gave him the child to hold while I fetched it. I went two doors off for it, and we drank it; he was standing, and said he was in a hurry, as he had to meet a young man at eight o'clock. I lit him down stairs directly, and we stopped some minutes at the door. When he left I went to the mantle-piece, and missed the watch. I left only him and the child in the room. My cousin was with me when he came, but she left me then. I left a child three years and a half old in the room.
ANN DIXON . I called to see my cousin. I let the prisoner in, he went up stairs, and I left; the watch was then on the shelf.
