Indenture register, 1877-1949

Since 1877 the Reformatory Prison for Women under successive names has had as its function the punishment and rehabilitation of female offenders. Legislation beginning with St 1879, c 229 provided for qualifying female inmates to be indentured out in domestic service. This register was created to record information about such inmates. It lists indenture number, inmate case number, name, offense, when committed, sentence, date of indenture, to whom indentured, date of return, and date discharged. By St 1950, c 727 work release was changed to day work of unspecified nature
