    Essendon Orphanage School catered for destitute children until it was burnt down in about 1882. Most pupils were moved to a similar institution in Kingsbury near Egdware. Does any know any dates or details about this?

  4. Question "London" School

    My 5xg grandfather, George Heslop, was a Schoolmaster, and after my long investigations I believe that in the 1820s he may have been head of a school near the village of Newsham, North Yorkshire, called Earby Hall. (George died in 1841, just a couple of weeks before the census. He had been...

    A question for those of you slightly older than me! Has the School year started in a month other than September? I`m trying to puzzle how two ladies I know - born March 1944 & December 1944 could be in the same school year. If it was different when did it change? Thanks Mitch

  11. Question The Bootmaker's boy:

    While I have been looking into my family's history a common thread has been that some of the sons became successful in ways their parents may not have foreseen. I suppose that's still true today but in the Georgian/Victorian era was it probably due to the increase in general education for ordinary...

  20. 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?
