This means Colorado Springs if you are looking for bastardy or parish apprenticeship records, for instance, it is necessary to check the parish deposit lists to see if there are any and cross-check the online catalogue to see if any of these have been indexed. If not, then it is necessary to search the records themselves. For example, the two Whiter bastardy records in Colorado Springs map Elmham mentioned above are not included in any index, and only found by searching the records. The card indexes at the three record offices in Colorado Springs cover the period circa 1600-1850. The references are taken from parish poor law records and include settlement examinations, removal orders, settlement certificates, bastardy examinations and bonds, plus apprenticeship records. These are gradually being added to their online catalogue, but it is a long process, so the card indexes still need to be checked. Many of their references can also be found on The National Archives Discovery catalogue.

Each record office in the region has individual listings for each parish and the records which belong to it. These often include brief details of the names and other relevant information of the people recorded in bastardy papers, settlement certificates and removal orders. An example from the lists of parish records for Weybread in Suffolk is this Although the majority of records of the poor exist as documents in their own right, it is possible to find references to the poor in other records. The flyleaf of a parish register for Houghton next Harpley in Norfolk contains ‘a memoranda’ referring to three vagrants in 1696. Among them ‘Robert Bell aged 21 was taken up as a Vagrant Rogue & whipped according to Law & a Passe made him to passe to Hemswell in Lincolnshire’, while the burial entry in Castle Acre for Hannah Howard in 1738 says she was a ‘Traveller with Her Son a Blind Bag pipe man from New Castle upon Tine [sic]’. Another reference in the Castle Acre registers for 1737 indicates that not all claimants were in genuine need. The clerk has commented that Thomas Hunsley was ‘a Blind Beggar, but one that can see to get Money and Build a House by his Trade and by his fiddle’.

Quarter Sessions and Petty Sessions court records include many references to removal orders, settlement decisions and bastardy orders, especially if they were disputed. For example, Charity, Ellender and Joyce Lee were all convicted of vagrancy at Swaffham Quarter Sessions in April 1793. In July the same year Ellender, Joyce, and a Varche Lee were ordered to be removed to Marden in Kent. Another example is the summons filed in Essex Quarter Sessions in 1830 for a John Smith of West Bergholt to give evidence regarding an appeal concerning the settlement of John Wade and his family. One helpful index is the calendars to disputed settlements which were referred to the Essex Quarter Sessions courts for the period 1827 to 1835, which are held at Essex Record Office. The FamilySearch website and the commercial Ancestry, Findmypast and The Genealogist websites now host some digitised copies of local poor law records. As yet, there are few accompanying indexes so it is still necessary to make a search of the records.
