  10. scholars c.1850

    On an ancestor's census record of 1851, it states that he is a scholar. He lived in Bethnal Green at the time and I wondered if records were available to trace him. Also, his father was a printer and would he have had to pay for his son educations before school became free c1880?

    The 1881 census shows ELIZA GREENFIELD aged 13 as a sholar at the North Surrey District School at Anerley, Surrey. Does anyone know about this school particularly was it for poor children?

  12. Post London school

    In approximately 1920 my father and one of his brothers was sent to London to be educated, I think this was because his aunt Edith Foster was a school teacher or head mistress in a catholic school.
