Register 1

 School Register 1 explanationThe first school register contains a transcription of an earlier register made by George Tredaway in 1873. The transcription includes admissions from the school year from 1865. The previous headmaster was Henry Cooper who may have been the head master from 1842 or 1862 , the date is not clear but he handed over to George Tredwell in 1867.  The register not only records the name and date of birth of the child it also lists the parent and where they lived. Some addresses are very vague, like ‘The Folly’ but some individual properties can be identified. He also included some statistical analysis from the 1881 census onwards. He was not very consistent in what information he recorded but the summaries are as follows.
 1881. The population of the parish on 4th April 1881 was 383 males and 377 females with a total of 760. There were 176 inhabited houses and 10 uninhabited with a total of 186 houses.
