PREFACE. 



THE following Register, which is probably unique in kind, 
has been compiled from various sources and therefore is 
deficient in uniformity, but it claims to possess the higher 
.merit of authenticity and thus will commend itself to others 
beside " Old Merchant Taylors." For the first forty years the 
sources of information have been the Minute Books of the Court 
of the Merchant Taylors' Company, a MS. List of the Fellows 
of St. John's, Oxford, kept by that Society and quoted by Dr. 
Wilson in his History of the School, and Robert Nowell's 
Account Book, edited by the Rev. A. B. Grosart. But it must 
not be supposed that during this period anything like a complete 
list of the boys educated at the School can be made. No accurate 
record was kept until the institution of the School's Probation 
in 1607. Thenceforward, and almost without interruption, we 
have lists of the whole School, made at first three times and, at 
a later period, twice in every year; and, although the writing is 
sometimes very careless and discrepancies in the birth-dates and 
the spelling of the same names are numerous, it is difficult to 
over-rate the importance of such a contemporary record. It has 
formed the basis of the chief part of this work; but, as it supplies 
no information as to birth-place and parentage, those details, 
when given, have been derived from other quarters. Of these 
subsidiary sources the most important is Mr. Dugard's Register 
(kindly lent by its custodians, the President and Fellows of Sion 
College), extending fi-om 1644 to 1661 and giving mirKite 
particulars about every boy admitted by him. This docviinent 
is simply invaluable to thp genealogist. Later on we have the 
MS. Admission Registers kept by Mr. Cherry, Mr. Bellamy, Dr. 



vi. Pre/ace. 

(now Archdeacon) Hessey and Dr. Baker, and some trustworthy 
notes made by Dr. Wilson, the historian of the School, in certain 
lists prepared by him for another purpose. For the use of these 
I am indebted to my friend, the present Head Master. It will be 
readily understood that the annotations of the Editor are merely 
suggestive and that the book would have grown to an incon- 
venient size and its publication have been indefinitely postponed, 
if they had been much further extended. Such as they are (and 
they represent no small amount of toil) they may, perhaps, assist 
others in researches which have gfiven him pleasure and lead to 
discoveries which he has failed to make. . 

The Editor is glad to avail himself of this opportunity for 
thanking the Master, Wardens and Court of the Merchant 
Taylors' Company for the encouragement they have given him 
in what has proved a laborious undertaking. He desires also 
to express his many obligations to F. G. FaithfuU, Esq., the 
courteous Clerk of the Company, to Sir Albert Woods (Garter), 
G. E. Cokayne, Esq. (Norroy), and other members of the College 
of Arms, to many old and young Merchant Taylors for personal 
facts or reminiscences, to Dr. Baker, the present Head Master, 
for much valuable assistance, and last, but chiefest, to Archdeacon 
Hessey, whose interest in the work has never flagged, and has 
done more than aught else to bring it to completion. Of its 
many shortcomings and errors no one is more sensible than the 
Editor, but, conscious of the pains expended on it, he ventures 
to claim for it an indulgent reception.

HISTORICAL SKETCH. 



THE foundation of Merchant Taylors' School was one of the 
results of that revival of learning which marked the reign 
of Elizabeth and showed itself conspicuously in the growth 
of the Ghrammar School system throughout the kingdom. But, 
as contributory causes, we must also take into account the public 
spirit of the age and the increased wealth which the extension 
of commerce brought into the country. Never did the merchants 
of London occupy a higher position than in the sixteenth century, 
when cadets of noble and ancient families* thought it no 
degradation to take an active part in the commercial enterprises 
of the time, and, perhaps by virtue of their ancestry, possessed 
and displayed some nobler faculties than the mere greed of gold. 

Among the most opulent and large-hearted men of this 
class was a member of the Merchant Taylors' Company, Sir 
Thomas White, who had given ample proof of his zeal in the 
cause of education by founding, in 1557, St. John's College, in 
the University of Oxford. It is far from being improbable that 
either to him or to some other member of the Court may have 
occurred the idea of establishing in London a Grrammar School 
which should bear the same relation to the newly-founded 
College which the twin foundations of William of Wykeham 
already bore to one another. Be this as it may, the first active 
step towards the realization of such a scheme, which was after- 
wards actually carried out, seems to have been taken by Mr. 



* The Binding Books of the Merchant Taylors' Company (kindly placed at my 
service by the Court) record the apprenticeships of many such. The names of Fairfax, 
Reresby, NorcliiF, Okeover, Cromwell, Calverley, Rokeby, Scudamore and Harrington 
smpear in rapid succession on their pages, and the founders of the noble families of 
Anan and Caiysfort, Craven and Dude are to be found among the Liverymen of the 
Guild. 



viii. Historical Sketch. 



Richard Hills,* an influential member of the Court, who, in the 
year 1560, contributed the sum of ;^500 towards the purchase of 
suitable jpremises. Accordingly, in the early part of the following 
year t the Company bought a moiety of the Manor of " the Rose, 
within the parish of St. Laurence Poultney." J "The fortunes 
of this mansion," writes Archdeacon Hessey, "had been various. 
" It was originally built by Sir John Pulteney, knight, five times 
" Lord Mayor of London, in the reign of Edward HI. It passed 
" successively through the hands of his widow, of John Holland, 
" Duke of Exeter, and of various members of the De la Pole, or 
" SuflFolk, family. It was forfeited for treason on the part of the 
" last bearer of that name, and granted by the Crown, in 1506, to 
"Edward [StaflFord], Duke of Buckingham, by whom it was 
" retained until he was attainted in the 13th of Henry VIII. The 
" unfortunate Henry Courtenay [Earl of Devon and Marquis of 
" Exeter] was the next possessor. On his execution [1539-40] it 
" was granted to [Robert Radcliffe, Earl of Sussex, whose grand- 
" son] obtained licence from the Crown to dispose of it." 

The portion bought by the Merchant Taylors' Company 
comprised "the west gate-house, a long court or yard, the 
" winding stairs at the south end of the said court on the east 
" side thereof (leading as well from the court unto the leads over 
" the chapel, as also to two galleries over the south end of the 
" court), the said galleries and part of the chapel." The remainder 
of the site was bought by Aid. Wm. Beswicke,§ citizen and 
draper, from whose family it was purchased in the following 
century by Sir Patience Warde, Lord Mayor of London, who 



* Richard Hills took much personal interest in the management of the School and 
died Dec. 15^7. His will, dated 20 Aug. 1^87, was proved 29 May, 1590. In connection 
with the foundation of the School we ougnt also to mention Emanuel Lucar, who was 
Master of the Company in 1560-61, and perhaps inherited a love of learning from his 
learned mother, who was buried in St. Laurence Pountney. 

t The date of the conveyance is ist May, 1561. (See WUsorCs History of St, 
iMurence Pountney^ p. 193). But the School must have already been in occupation of 
the premises, if the Register of St. Laurence Pountney be correct in recording under 
Jan. 1 560- 1, the burial of " Richard Wiman, Usher of the Schole."

made it his residence. Quite recently (1859) ^^^ ^^ properties 
were re-united and became vested in the Merchant Taylors' 
Company, at the cost of ;^20,ooo. 

What may have been the external appearance or internal 
arrangements of the original school buildings we have scanty 
means of judging. In the Order made in 1607 for the School's 
Probation it is stated that " for number of schoUers it is the 
greatest schoole included under one roo/e" and we may perhaps 
infer from this expression that the boys were all taught in one 
large room, as was the case in most schools until recent times. 
A portion of the chapel was, as we have seen, included in the 
Company's purchase, and we learn from the Original Statutes 
of the School (dated, 23 Sept. 1 561) that this was also known as 
" the councell-howse," and was situated on the south side of the 
long court or yard of the school. It was the place appointed 
for the yearly examination of the school, and, after 1572, for the 
Election by the President and Fellows of St. John's, of scholars 
on the foundation of Sir Thomas White.* The so-called chapel 
does not appear to have been set apart, either before or after its 
re-building, for any distinctly religious uses, the Statutes enjoin- 
ing that " the children, thrice in the day, kneeling on their knees, 
shall say the prayers appointed with due tract and pawsing, as 
they be, or shalbe hereafter, conteyned on a table sett up in the 
schoole." The Head Master's house or lodging was on the south 
side of the school and the chief usher's on the north side next 
the gate, while the chambers of the under masters were under 
the school room and near the middle of the long court. 

The school hours would in these days be considered severe. 
The school met at 7 a.m. both in winter and summer, and broke 
up at 5 p.m., there being an interval for refreshment between 1 1 
and I o'clock. As to the course of study it has varied very little 



* Sir Thomas White attached to the School Thirty-seven out of the Fiftv Fellowships 
with wMch he had endowed St. John's College. [He originally endowea Forty-three, 
but afterwards gave Six to Founder*s-kin.] They were held on Probation for three 
years, but became Life Fellowships if the term of probation was satisfactorily passed, 
lids noble benefaction has now b«en much curtailed. .

until the present century, when many additions and alterations 
have been made, especially within the last twenty years. By 
the Statutes distinct provision was made for religious teaching, 
including the Catechism and the Articles of the Faith, and it was 
enjoined that the Head Master should be " learned in good and 
cleane Latin literature and also in Greeke, yf such may be 
gotten."* Fuller quaintly describes Mulcaster's method of 
teaching in the following terms : " In a morning he would 
"exactly and plainly construe and parse the lesson to his 
"scholars; which done, he slept his hour (custom made him 
" critical to proportion it) in his desk in the school, but woe be 
" to the scholar that slept the while. Awaking he heard them 
" accurately; and Atropos might be persuaded to pity as soon as 
"he to pardon, where he found just fault. The prayers of 
" cockering mothers prevailed with him as much as the requests 
"of indulgent fathers, rather increasing than mitigating his 
" severity on their offending children ; but his sharpness was the 
" better endured because impartial ; and many excellent scholars 
" were bred under him." 

The Great Fire of London in 1666 destroyed the school 
buildings and seriously interfered with the course of education. 
Owing probably to the great loss of property which the Company 
then sustained, nearly five years t elapsed before steps were 
taken to re-build the school, and, in the interval, the scholars 
seem to have assembled, in diminished numbers, at St. Mary's 
Grrammar School, in the parish of St. Andrew Undershaft. The 
exact period during which those premises were occupied we have 
been unable to discover, but it appears that the election in June, 

* There was no provision made in the Statutes for teaching Hebrew, but some 
instruction in that language seems always to have been given, and in later times has met 
with much encouragement. During Dr. Hessey's Head Mastership fifty-two distinctions 
in Hebrew were gamed at the Universities by Merchant Taylors, and similar success in 
this department of study is still maintained. It is specially recorded that in 1572 (the first 
Election day) Bishop Home examined the boys in the Hebrew Psalter. 

t On the 8th Feb. 1667, an estimate of the cost of re-building was ordered to be' 
prepared, and on the iith Jan. 167 1, a building committee was appointed and rapid 
progress with the works was made. Funds were furnished not only by the Company, 
out also through the subscriptions of former scholars and legacies of members of the 
.Court. Yet the work flagged and an excessive amount of time seems to have been 
consumed in bringing it to a dose.

1674, was the first that was holden in the restored chapel of 
Merchant Taylors' School, and that the school buildings were 
not completed before the close of the year 1675. 

Erected under great difficulties, and at a somewhat unfortu- 
nate period, it can be no matter of surprise that the new school 
possessed few features of architectural interest or beauty. It 
was, in fact, a plain brick structure, running north and south, 
and lit on either side by eight round-topped windows of no 
pcirticular character. Between these, upon the western or street 
side, were as many pilasters which, with a somewhat bold 
entrance doorway, formed the only relief to a dull exterior. 
Internally the arrangements seem to have corresponded in the 
main with those of the earlier building. At the southern 
extremity were two wainscotted rooms, communicating with each 
other and with the upper (and, at that time, the only) school 
room. The outer room was first used as a library and sub- 
sequently as a class room ; the inner occupied probably the 
position of the old chapel and always bore its name. In its 
windows were a few pieces of armorial stained glass and a Latin 
inscription commemorating the restoration of the chapel and 
school under the auspices of Alderman Patience Ward. On the 
wall was hung a portrait of Sir Thomas White, painted, or 
rather copied, by Robert Mallory,* who was Master of the 
Company in 1675. Contiguous to the chapel was the Head 
Master's house, and the apartments of the under masters were 
beneath the large school room. The latter were in 1829 
appropriated to the use of the writing masters and also employed 
as class-rooms for the junior forms. It was not until the year 
1 8 10 that any means of warming the school were introduced, 
and strict adherence was paid until recent times to the letter of 
the Statute, " In the Schoole at noe tyme of the yere they shall 
use tallow candle in noe wise, but wax candles only." 



• Robert Mallory was a member of one of the oldest Yorkshire families, and 
descended from Sir John Mallory, of Studley Hall, two of whose sons, Ralph and 
Timothy, were apprenticed to Merchant Taylors in London in the years 1604 and 1605.

xii. Historical Sketch. 



In modem days many improvements both in the course of 
study and in the school arrangements were made by the Company. 
Of the former the most important was the introduction of 
Writing and Mathematics in 1829, French and Modem History 
in 1846, and Drawing in 1856. The latter included additional 
class-rooms and two new writing-rooms under the library. 

But it became increasingly evident that the requirements of 
modem education could not be satisfied in the restricted space 
at the disposal of the Company. Accordingly, when, in 1861, 
an offer was made by the Governors of the Charter House to 
surrender their school premises, covering five and a half acres 
of land, negociations were at once set on foot which resulted in 
the purchase of the property for ;^90,ooo. On the site thus 
acquired — a site tenanted by a kindred geniiis loci — ^the first 
stone of the new Merchant Taylors' School was laid by H.R.H. 
the Duke of Edinburgh on the 15 June, 1873, T. W. Baggallay, 
Esq., being at that time Master of the Company, and the new 
School was opened by H.R.H. the Prince of Wales on 6 April, 
1 875* J* C. Sim, Esq., Master. The architect employed was 
Edward I' Anson, Esq.,* from whose designs a very complete 
and imposing building has been erected at a cost of some ;^ 40,000. 
The number of scholars has been raised to 500 and the staff of 
masters has been proportionately increased. The curriculum of 
studies has been largely extended and embraces not merely 
those subjects which had been taught in the old School, but also 
German, Physical Science, Chemistry, English Literature and 
Book-keeping. In place of the gloomy cloisters which for two 
centuries formed the only play-ground and wherein, by the 
Statutes, " no cock-fighting nor tennys-play " were allowed, the 
boys have now the enjoyment of racquet and fives' courts and the 
use of the Green for cricket, football and other games. 

There can be no question that the recent munificence of the 
Merchant Taylors' Company has opened to their school a noble

future. If it correspond with the past (upon which these pages 
are designed to shed fresh light) the new founders will have no 
cause for dissatisfaction and the " old boys " additional reason 
to be proud of an institution which time and transfer have but 
served to develop. 



Although by the Statutes the number of boys to be taught 
in the School was fixed at 250 * it sometimes fell below or rose 
above that limit. In the time of Mulcaster and in that of Hayne 
and of Parsell the number was often exceededyf and during the 
masterships of Dugard and Bonwicke the School was always 
full. In more recent times the difiiculty has been to keep within 
the limit and the applications for admission during the master- 
ships of Mr. Bellamy and Dr. Hessey were largely in excess of 
the vacancies. 

These facts will supply the place of any criticism upon the 
successive occupants of the Head Master's seat, whose names t 
were as follow : — 

A.D.

unable to pay for education, 50 of a little higher grade and the remaining 100 the children 
of " rich or meane (i^, middle-class) men." 

t In 171 1 it rose to 381, the largest number ever taught in the School.

Removed, April, 1624-5. He was charged with certain irregu- 
larities, but mfirmity of body seems to have been the cmef

April 13, 1681. Died October 28, I&89. 

[Mr. Goad quitted his office under suspicions of being inclined 
* to the Romish Communion, which he afterwards shewed to be 

too well founded. He had sometime been Vicar of Yamton, 
and there became acquainted with Anthony k Wood, who speaks 
of him very favourably in his Autobiography. In 1662 the 
Boys of the School acted a Play at Merchant Taylors' Hall, 
called « Love's Pilgrimage," by Beaumont and Fletcher.] 

1 68 1 — 1686. 10. John Hartcliffe,d.d. originally matriculated

Fellow of King's College, Cambridge. Head Master of Mer- 
chant Taylors', May 4, i6iBi. Resigned 1686. He afterwards 
became Canon of Windsor. In the year 1689 King William 
m. attempted to force Dr. Hartdiffe on the Fellows of King's

revived at M^chant Taylors', at Uie wish and under the direction 
of Mr. Townley, who was the author of '< High Life below 
Stairs." In the former year the '< Eunuchus " of Terence was 
enacted in the School-room. Dr. Thomas Bishop, of Salisbury, 
who had been educated at the School, and several persons of 
distinction, were present. A copy of the original programme 
of the performances is in the keeping of the President of St. 
John's College. It is headed, << Terentii Eunuchus, in SchoUl 
Mercatorum Scissorum, 1 762." The celebrated David Garrick, 
who was a personal friend of Mr. Townley, took great interest 
in the representations. The second act of the " Phormio " of 
Terence was performed in the same year more privately. The 
next year the " Troades " of Seneca, abridged mto three acts, 
and Kuggles's *< Ignoramus," abridged into two, were enacted

' Edmund Spenser^ the poet. The date of Spenser's admission is unknown, but from 
an entry in the account book of Robert Nowell (brother of the Dean of St. Paul's), it 
appears that he was at Merchant Taylors' in 1568, and then received one of the gowns 
given by Mr. Nowell to certain poor scholars. On the 28th of April, 1569, there occurs 
in the same account book the following entry: — "To Edmond Spenser, scholler of the 
M'^hante Tayler Schole at his gowinge to Pembrocke Hall in Chambridge, x»." It may 
be presiraied that Spenser entered school when 10 years of age, and quitted it about the 
age of 16; this would make the date of his admission 1562 or 1563. He published his 
first poem, "The Shepherd's Calendar," in 1579 and in the following year accompanied 
Lord Grey de Wilton, the Viceroy, to Ireland, acting as his secretary and receiving a 
grant of lands in the county of Cork. His great wonc, the " Faerie Queen," was pub- 
Eshed in the years 1590 and 1591. The rebellion of Tyrone in Ireland involved him in 
such misfortune that he was compelled to seek refuge in England, where he may be said 
to have died of a broken heart January 16, 1598-9. His remains were interred, at the 
expense of the Earl of Essex, in Westminster Abbey, where the Countess of Dorset 
raised a monument to his memory. (See The Spending of the Money of Robert Nowell^ 
edited by Rev. A. Grosart. Biog. Diet. &c.) 

8 Richard Bitese. This and the four following entries are obtained from Nowell's 
account book. Each scholar received twelve yards of cloth, at 6d. the yard. 

* Gregory DovmhaU or Dorumhill, was appointed by Archdeacon Wattes one of his 
Grreek scholars at Pembroke Hall, Cambridge, and became a Master in Chancery. ( Cooper^ s 
Ath, Cantab.) He married the widow of Abraham Tryon, and was buried at St. Mary, 
Aldermanbuiy, 21 April, 161 4. {Par. Reg.) 

* yohn Chapman, of Trinity Coll. Cambridge, 1570. 

* Lancelot Andrewes, bom in the parish of Allhallows Barking in 1555. The date of 
his admission to school is imknown, but in 157 1 he was chosen by Archdeacon Wattes as 
one of his scholars at Pembroke Hall, Cambridge. He became Fellow in 1576, and was 
elected Master in 1598. His other preferments were as follow: — Dean of Westminster 
1601; Bishop of Chichester and Lord High Almoner 1605; Bishop of Ely 1609; 
Dean of the Chapel Roval 1619; Bishop of Winchester and Prelate of the Order 
of the Garter 18 Feb. 1619-20. He was one of the Commissioners of the Church at the 
Hampton Court Conference, assisted in the Translation of the Bible, and both with the 
Queen and the public generally enjoyed the highest reputation as a man of piety, learning 
and judgment. He died unmarried 25 September (being his birthday), 1626 and was 
buried in the church of St. Saviour, Southwark. {JVbod's Ath. Oxon. Biog. Diet. &c.)

* This entry is given at length as a specimen of the manner in which the admissions 
to the School are noted at this period in the Company's books. It has not been thought 
necessary to repeat it verbatim^ but merely to give the sense of the entry. 

t The Original Statutes fixed the entire number of scholars at 250, whereof 100 were 
to be taught ^tuitously, 50 at 2s. 6d. per (quarter and 100 at 5s. a quarter. The rule 
was in later times relaxed, and at the beginning of the 17th century the numbers 
fluctuated greatly, falling as low as 186 in 1607 and again rising to 350 eight years 
afterwards. The trades which are given in these lists are not necessarily those which 
were followed by the boys' fathers but refer rather to the Guilds of wmch they were 
members. Even in the i6th century it does not appear that tradesmen were in all cases 
free of the particular company with which their business was connected.

Oxford in 1620, and at Cambridge in 162 1. He became f.rx.p. London in 1628, but 
was in frequent conflict with the College, and in 1659 was deprived of his Fellowship. 
His professional reputation was great. He was eldest Physician in Ordinary to the King, 
and the Czar of Russia wrote with his own hand to Charles I. begging for his services. 
He was a voluminous writer, one of his books being entitled "The Sober Man's Vindica- 
tion, discovering the true cause and manner how Dr. Chamberlen came to be reported 
mad." Lond. 1662. He died 22 Dec. 1683 and was buried at Woodham Mortimer, co.

his wife Margaret, dau. of Thomas Gore, of London. He was admitted of Gray*s Inn, 
London, August, 16 19.

" 'William." In that case we should identify the boy with William Bond, of London 
(son of William and Margaret aforesaid) who was « aged about 30 years " in 1633-4.

* Naihaniel Ward, There were at least three contemporaries of this name (see

drop, who was slain fighting for the King at Milium Castle, Camb. 1644. 

' yohn Evefyn, baptised at Kingston on Thames, 20 Aug. 1 601 as "son of Mr. 
George Eveljm, jun'." Messrs. Cooper identify him with one of the name who was of 
£man. Coll. Camb. B.A. 16 18-9 and there can l>e little doubt that he was afterwards m.p. 
for Ludgershall and Knighted. He was declared a traitor by Charles I. and espoused the

in 1639, and afterwards Lt.-Col. of that regiment, for it seems scarcely probable that a

[The next Probation of the School took place on Sept. il, 1644, after Mr. Dugard's 
am)ointment to the Head Mastership. His own MS. Register of Admissions is in the 
Library of Sion College, and contains the particulars of every boy's birth and parentage, 
and it would appear that this information is not confmed to those ooys who were admitted 
by him, but extended also to some at least who had been previously at school. The 
Register is written in Latin and admirably kept, but for the sake of convenience the 
entries have been translated by me into English and all unnecessary repetitions have been 
omitted. 

The following names are those of boys who entered between the last Probation and 
the commencement of Dugard's Register and do not occur in the latter. Editor^

2 Stephen Jackson. Col. Chester cites the administration granted to her son,

Tavern, in the Strand, and the other an officer in Col. Kirke's Regiment. {Chester's 
Westm, Abbey Reg, 347.) 

' Augustine Wdmar, There is every reason to suppose that the father was Colonel 
Augustine Warner, who was Member of the Council of Virginia, Burgess from 
Gloucester County in 1658-9, and Speaker of the House. He died in 1 68 1. His 
daughter, Mildred, married Laurence Washington, of Virginia. In a note kindly 
furnished by an American correspondent the son, and not the father, is said to have been 
the Speaker, but the above entry shows that the former must have been at school when 
the latter was a Burgess.

TO THE NAMES OF THE SCHOLARS. 



U should be borne in mind that great variations in the spelling of the same names occur in the 
Register, due not merely to the carelessness of the tianscriber, but also to the indiflFerence of the 
bearers of the names. Orthography is, in fact, a comparatively modem art.
