When I saw your post, bells started ringing. I really enjoyed reading the school history. But what was a Dame? Was she the headmistress?

I've also been doing some double-checking on FreeReg and thought the following entry was interesting:

Baptism
Laceby St Margaret

Thos. Barker
17 January 1773
Mother: Faith Barker
Notes: A bastard

As Faith married William a month later, could Thomas be another of the couple's children?

There's a lot of info on FreeReg on the Barkers, Appleyards and Plumptons. Over to you - happy searching.

It seems as if the Dame was a school mistress.

Laceby Stanford School was set up by the Stanford Trust. Phlip and Sarah Stanford, who lived at Barnoldby-le-Bec before moving to Laceby, had three children, all of whom died in infancy. Having no heirs, they decided to leave land and money for good causes. Philip died first. In 1720, Sarah set up a deed which funded the trust. On her death, she stated that income from her lands and house would fund five causes - one of which was the setting up of a charity school. She was very specific in what she wanted. She set our staff remuneration - the master was to get £12 a year plus free coal and the mistress would get £4 a year (talk about a pay gap!) plus free coal. Sarah also stipulated the subjects which would be taught. Interestingly, she wanted girls to be taught 'cash accounts'. The first school house was built at the bottom of Cooper Lane in Laceby. Sadly, it was demolished in 1970.

The Dame was expected to keep pupils in her own dwelling house.

No probs, Lynn. I know the area, so it!s been a joy discovering that Faith and her mother were teaching girls to do 'cash accounts' in what was a rural village of 300 people - way ahead of their time. Have you visited Laceby?

No I haven't. My Dad came from Barton & I have been there a few times but never to Laceby. I am now dying to go back to Lincoln to see all the parish records, I am finding loads of interest on Freereg

Have you tried on Lincs to the Past, Lynn? Go onto the Advanced Search and search for Laceby Par 1 as the exact phrase, and you will see the parish registers that are available.

It's a great source - and a lot has been transcribed on FreeReg.
