Anyone seen this one before?

"Christ's Hospital opened its doors in 1552 as a school to train orphans in reading, writing, and arithmetic. After the children finished their training they were apprenticed to various merchants, ship captains, and planters around the growing English empire. The Christ's Hospital Project focuses on tracking those apprentices that made their way to the North American colonies during the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries."
