George Monoux - Schoolmasters before 1782

MONOUX SCHOOLMASTERS BEFORE 1782.


There is no proper record of the masters of the Monoux School before 1782, but I have a list of the surnames of those who were almspriests after Hogeson. The first is Colby, who is said to have died of the plague in 1609, and then follow-Yarner, Dawson, Groom, Cain, Aaron, Harris, Davis, Cook, Mattocks, Walker,'~ Lewis, Forbes, Johnson, Ford, Birdsey, Vandeleer, Moody, Carter, Briercliffe, Tough, Archer, Tate, Mills, Gawthorne, and Cunningham. Of all these little or nothing is known, but there is a tablet in the Church in memory of Matthew Tate, B.A., Master of Walthamstow School, 1720.
