Sir Samuel Mico 1608 - 1666 Apprenticeship - Levant Company?

Postby sbmcleod » Tue Feb 19, 2019 6:01 pm

I am a Trustee of Weymouth Town Charities. One of our benefactors was Sir Samuel Mico 1608 - 1666. We now know he was baptised in Melcombe Regis in 1608 and turns up in London paying a fine to become a Mercer in 1633. He later became Worshipful Master of the Mercers in 1655.

However, we are struggling to learn anything about his earlier life, i.e. education and apprenticeship. We have made contact with various livery companies but there are no records of his own apprenticeship around 1620. We know there is a possibility that he served his apprenticeship abroad, learning the trade he was about to embark upon.We also know relatives of his worked as factors in Alicante.

Does anyone know if there are any records of his apprenticeship in the Levant Company during those earlier times of his life please? We should be very grateful for any advice you can offer. Many thanks, Stuart McLeod

The National Archives at Kew has a number of records relating to the Levant Company, using search term "Levant Company" but whether any are relevant to your query I don't know. The are also a number of results using search term "Samuel Mico"
http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk

A search in the Internet Archive, Archive.org for "Samuel Mico" gives the following results.

Perhaps one of the books listed may provide some relevant information.

Cheers
