I have found reference to an order book entry that I think may very well be my brick wall that has blocked me from figuring out who my 5th great-grandparents are. The entry I found is:
Order Book O page 3 Sept. 12, 1792 Ordered that the overseers of the Poor bind William Poland age 4 years the 10th of April next to John Houghman Jr. according to law.
Can anyone tell me how to find out more about this entry? Would the minute books potentially have more information about why William Poland was being bound out or more importantly, would they potentially indicate who his parents are? Are there other resources that I could check to find out more about this?
Any information would be GREATLY appreciated. I have been trying to determine who my William Poland's parents were for over 15 years.
