from May 9, 1893 to July 14, 1896 (aged 32 years)
Note: Your ancestor [Bridger] was articled to a freeman for a two year period commencing 9 May 1893. This means that he was over 21 years when articled to his master. The date he received his licence (which was not a full licence like a freedom) certainly looks like 14 July 1890, but of course this must be wrong. On a closer check it must be 1896.

The normal age to be apprenticed or bound to a master was between 14 and 20, due to the number of watermen and lightermen falling in 1868 it was decided to give a limited licence to men 21 and over to be articled for a two year term to a freeman and obtain a limited licence. Your ancestor came within this category.
