This has been an interesting read Lynn. I'm not related to Faith but my family lived in laceby from the 1790's. I wonder if some of mine attended the School?

Laceby is a lovely village, i've visited once & it was great to walk round all the streets i'd seen on the census.

Shona can you PM your contact's details, i'd be interested in contacting them.

As regards Stanford School, the trustees set out to find a 'discreet woman' who would teach small boys and girls in her own home. When the boys could read the Psalter correctly and the girls could write and 'cast accounts', they were to proceed to the school room.

Mr A Hainton was the first master and Frances Plumpton was the first mistress. Frances Plumpton held her position until 1752, giving 22 years service. Mr Hainton must have liked his job - he remained master for 50 years.

Two of the 16 children under the Dame in 1737 were: Francis Appleyard and Rebecca Appleyard.
Just had time to check this & Frances & Rebecca were William Appleyard's sisters. Sadly Rebecca died in 1739.
