  1. School Master

    William Walter Hall died in Jarrow in June 1875 aged 67 years. His occupation is School Master. How do I start to find out where he studied and later held the post of School Master ? He married Hannah Harbottle in March 1829 in Hebron, Northumberland. Eviand

  2. William Rozzel(l)

    Looking for any information about this man. I believe he was master of St Martins School, Leicester for many years around 1800s. He possibly also wrote some tracts about English Grammer.
