20 Like other victualling crafts, brewing’s unofficial character may have allowed women more opportunities to practice the trade, but it may also have led to the unsavory reputation of the craft, as well. Women also had a hold over the retail sale of ale, even after hops were introduced to England and professional male brewers began to take over the large-scale production of beer in the fifteenth century. Some brewers hired tapsters—again, usually women—to assist them in their retail trade. And since some women ran small alehouses or taverns out of their brewing properties, their servants did double service as public ale taverners.
In larger towns, a third or more of all households employed servants, both male and female, most of whom lived in the household and began their service at relatively young ages. Although female servants did not have access to the formal apprenticeships that their male counterparts did, they performed work that was more than simple housekeeping and often assisted in craft occupations, particularly cloth and garment production. 31 What such associations tell us is that women were clearly important to the household economy and relied upon trade contacts for finding work just as their brothers did for procuring their work and apprenticeships.
115 That is all that the glovers’ ordinances have to say on the subject of apprenticeship, and other guilds’ ordinances are similarly laconic. Their relative silence is telling. The frequent ( but brief ) mention of apprentices in these documents suggests a systematic practice of taking them on and training them—and the plays frequently reinforce this ideal—but in reality, apprenticeship was a system that did not always run smoothly, especially for the apprentices, and was never quite so systematic or stable.
