A CONTRACT FOR AN

INDENTURED SERVANT



Here is a copy of an indentured Servant contract used in 1684. In copying the contract, we have retained most of the original orthography — spelling, punctuation, and other details of form. Some of these details may surprise you. In deciding whether to use upper- or lowercase letters, for example, the typesetters here seem to have followed no rules at all. Seventeenth-century readers would not have been surprised, however. Orthography at this time was not standardized by dictionaries, grammars, or any widespread system of schooling. Literate people, therefore, had considerable leeway to follow their own rules of practice in their writing.
The indenture: According to the method made and provided; And by the Order and Directions of His Sacred Majestic King CHARLES the Second of England. And his most Honourable Privy council, the Thirteenth day of December Anno 1682. In the Thirty Fourth year of his said Majesties Reign (then Printed and Published), declaring, That what Persons at anytime, as are Voluntary, free and willing at their own Liberties, to be retained to serve in any of His Majesties Foreign Plantations in AMERICA, are to be duely Examined and bound only before any of his Majesties Justices of the Peace, and the fame to bear Record in the Court of Sessions, in that county or City where such Servants shall be so bound.
