PREFACE 

Nearly sixty years have passed since the late Mr. H. E. 
Chetwynd-Stapylton published the first instalment of 
his well-known Eton School Lists which covered, when 
completed, the period from 1791 to 1892. Though 
the number of books dealing with Eton which have 
been produced in the intervening years has not been 
small, no attempt has been made to issue an earlier 
biographical register of Etonians. Nor need this fact 
call for any great surprise. Mr. Stapylton had taken 
the date 1791 as his starting-point for the very sound 
reason that this was the first year in which it had 
occurred to anyone at Eton — and we owe the idea to 
William Hexter, the ingenious writing-master of the 
day — to put into print the School-list which was 
annually compiled at Election time. By a curious 
coincidence, too, the earliest entrance-books known in 
Mr. Stapylton's time to exist were those of Dr. Heath, 
who became headmaster at the end of that same year. 
Thus, in the absence of printed school lists and 
entrance-books, the task of editing a register was 
none too easy. 

Yet an earlier register was certainly to be desired, 
if Eton were not to fall behind other schools in this 
respect. Before, however, such a work could be under- 
taken, it was necessary to see if sufficient foundations 
existed upon which to build it. From direct sources 
in print little help could be gained. It is true that, 
with the usual enterprise of an Eton bookseller, 
Joseph Pote had compiled and published his Registrum 
Regale in 1774, of which a later edition, edited by his 
grandson, Edward Pote Williams, appeared in 1847 ; 
it is true too that Thomas Harwood had published 

vii 



PREFACE 

his Alumni Etonenses in 1797,^ yet notwithstanding the 
comprehensive title of that work, like the Registrum 
Regale it included only the biographies of such scholars 
as had proceeded from Eton to King's College, Cam- 
bridge. To a very slight extent these books had been 
supplemented by Creasy's Biographies of Eminent 
Etonians (1850), Jesse's Memoirs of Celebrated Etonians 
(1875), and Mr. A. C. Benson's Fasti Etonenses (1899). 
The valuable biographical notices contained in Mr. 
Lionel Cust's Eton College Portraits (191 2) were not yet 
in existence when the editing of the present Register 
was begun. 

More assistance was, however, to be derived from 
manuscript sources. In the first place there existed 
in duplicate, in the possession of the Provosts of Eton 
College, and King's College, Cambridge, respectively, 
a MS. register of Admissions to the foundation at Eton 
dating from 1661. In addition to the christian names of 
the scholars, this volume gave the date of their baptism 
and the parish in which it took place. Secondly, there 
had survived a considerable number of MS. school-lists, 
some in the possession of Eton College, and others in 
the hands of various private owners. Of these Mr. 
Stapylton, after taking copies of all those to which he 
could gain access, had finally bequeathed his collection 
of transcripts to the Library at Eton College. As a 
rule these lists contained nothing but the bare surnames 
of boys. 

A preliminary step before compiling any register was 
to complete as far as possible the collection of MS. 
school-lists before 1791. Several years passed in a search 
for such lists — a search which, if tedious in the main, 
had its occasional moments of compensation, when, for 
instance, it was possible to claim for Eton a list of 
1706 lying in the British Museum and long attributed 
to Westminster School. The result of my search for 
these lists was published in 1907. I had been able

executed, and is without an index. The biographical particulars are 
meagre.' — Dictionary of National Biography, sub ' Harwood.'

PREFACE 

to bring together a complete series of annual lists, with 
the exception of one year, from 1753 to 1790, and a fair 
number of earlier lists, which were, however, by no 
means for consecutive years. It was, therefore, not 
very difficult to decide that any contemplated register 
should embrace the years from 1753 to 1790, for which 
period it would include practically all who had been 
at the school, except some few boys who had stayed 
for only a half or two ; whereas had I attempted to take 
it further back the register must have been far less 
complete. 

With the period of the register thus fixed, my next 
step was to arrange in alphabetical order all the names 
contained in the lists, adding the years during which 
they appeared therein. This task, which was carried 
out for me by Mr. Murison, the Corrector of the Eton 
College Press, was laborious, but on the whole easy, 
owing to the fact that boys usually retained the same 
relative positions in the school ; yet it had its occasional 
difficulties when boys changed their names while at 
school, or after being oppidans became collegers, or 
when there were many boys of the same name. For 
instance, it has proved an almost impossible task to 
disentangle the various boys of the name of Smith, 
though I have had better fortune with the owners of 
the names of Brown and Jones. 

Accordingly, I found myself confronted with some 
three thousand surnames, which all needed to be 
identified before it was possible to give any notes on the 
subsequent careers of their possessors. For, out of the 
three thousand, only the names of boys with titles and of 
the collegers offered any obvious means of identification. 

Fortunately certain discoveries had been made, 
since my work began, which tended to make this part of 
the task less difficult than at one time seemed likely. 
In the first place, while looking through the shelves 
of the College Library I had come across — possibly 
discovered, for no one seemed aware of its existence — • 
a parchment-covered volume containing, with other 
information, a list of names which proved to be those 

ix 



PREFACE 

of the boys admitted by Dr. Barnard, headmaster, 
between the years 1754 and 1765. In addition to the 
surname, Dr. Barnard gave, as a rule, the christian 
name, the date of entry, the n^me of the dame, and 
the amount of the entrance fee. This discovery made 
the task of identifying some 11 00 boys much easier 
than had previously seemed probable. Still the ease 
was only comparative, and varied largely with the 
name. For instance, while it might be fairly easy to 
identify Thomas Watkinson Payler, it was obviously 
far more difficult to be certain about a boy named John 
Jones or William Smith. Unfortunately, too, even 
headmasters sometimes nod, and Dr. Barnard not 
only at times entered the christian name wrongly, but 
now and then forgot to enter any christian name at 
all, and it is an annoying fact that he was particularly 
careless in the case of the family of Smith, for out 
of twelve Smiths, in five cases he gave no christian 
name. 

Unluckily the discovery of Dr. Barnard's entrance- 
book was not followed up by that of the entrance- 
books of his two successors. Dr. Foster and Dr. Davies. 
That they must have existed one can hardly doubt, 
but they may have been regarded as the headmaster's 
private property, and for that reason never have been 
placed among the archives of the College.^ 

Another discovery, not quite so important as the 
first, has now to be recorded. In addition to the 
MS. Register of Admissions to College, already men- 
tioned, a collection of rolls of paper was brought to 
my notice by the present Bursar, which proved to be the 
certificates of baptism deposited by each successful 
candidate for election to a scholarship at Eton College 
with the object of proving that he was of statutory age. 
These certificates, which were copies from the parish 
registers, contained in nearly every case, in addition to 
the facts given in the MS. Register of Scholars, the name 

^ That Dr. Foster's Admission Book was extant in 1849 seems possible 
from a note appended to Lord Wellesley's name in Dr. Butler's Harrow 
School Lists published in that year. The note says : ' At the death of Dr. 
Sumner, 1771, he quitted Harrow for Eton, where his admission is briefly 
noted, "Lord Wellesley, Third Form, 1771." '

PREFACE 

(and often the status) of the father and sometimes even 
the maiden name of the mother. 

To identify the remainder of the boys who had 
not been admitted under Barnard, or been upon the 
foundation, or possessed a title, it was necessary to 
search in more indirect quarters. One very valuable 
source of information lay in the Registers of Admissions 
at several of the colleges at Cambridge, where it has 
been the custom to record the schools from which the 
undergraduates came. These registers had been pub- 
lished in the case of Gonville and Caius College and 
of St. John's College (down to 1767) before I began 
my work, while those for Christ's College, Peterhouse, 
and Trinity College have appeared in more recent 
years. Moreover, in every case except the last, full 
biographies of the names recorded have been compiled 
wherever possible. By this means, as I most gratefully 
acknowledge, I have been provided in many cases with 
a short cut to all I wanted, and for selfish if for no 
other reasons I can only regret that the largest and 
richest foundation of all has hitherto taken the least 
trouble in following up the careers of its alumni. 

With regard to the other Cambridge colleges, by the 
kindness of the various authorities I have been able 
to search the registers at Sidney Sussex College, 
which also gives the schools of its undergraduates, 
and of Emmanuel College, Clare College, and Trinity 
Hall, which record them for short periods, while the 
late Master of Magdalene College, Dr. S. A. Donaldson, 
sent me a list of the Etonians from his register. 

Yet another college, or rather university, which 
records under the admission of its members the schools 
at which they were educated, is Trinity College, Dublin, 
and through the kindness of Mr. T. U. Sadleir I have 
been furnished with a list of such Etonians as are to 
be found in its register. 

Unfortunately no similar custom prevailed at 
Oxford, ; ^ ^i^'^re is thus far less certainty in identifying 
Etonians who proceeded to that university. 

Further means of identification are to be found 
by searching through the columns of the Dictionary of 

xi 



PREFACE 

National Biography for instances where the subject is 
said to have been educated at Eton ; and through the 
Eton Parish Register for boys who died while at the 
school, and were buried there. Again, considerable 
help has been afforded by notes appended to the names 
on some of the old school-lists. Thus the list, 
printed in the Gentleman's Magazine of January 1832, 
for the year 1781, though attributed to 1779-80, con- 
tains some very valuable notes. Many notes, too, 
are to be found in the MS. collection of lists for 1762 
to 1769, belonging to Mr. G. E. Lloyd-Baker, as 
well as a few in the Roll for 1769 belonging to Sir 
William Portal, and in that for 1765 belonging to the 
late Mr. V. F. Tufnell. Nor must Stapylton's Eton 
School Lists be forgotten in the cases of boys who 
overlap into his period. 

Another source deserving mention is the lists of 
Stewards of the Eton Anniversary, a function which 
flourished from 1787 onwards. The initials prefixed to 
the names as advertised in the public press of the day 
often assist in identifying their owners. Then, again, 
a fair sprinkling of Etonians is to be discovered in 
such works as Nichols' Literary Anecdotes of the 
Eighteenth Century, and in his Illustrations of the 
Literary History ; in Angelo's Reminiscences, and his 
Pic-nic (the preface of which provides us with the 
interesting identification of Repkombe) ; in the * Eton 
Characters ' to be found in the World newspaper for 
1787; and in the rambling preface to G. M. Berkeley's 
Poems, In addition there are the chance references 
to Etonians to be found in countless Memoirs, and the 
details supplied by the living in regard to ancestors 
who were at Eton. No source of information is to 
be despised. A name cut in the Upper School or 
even on the block, or written on the fly-leaf of an 
old school-book, if the initials of the christian names 
and a date are added, may often establish the identity 
of what otherwise would be nothing but a surname. 
Again, a bequest in the will of John Ranby, a well- 
known surgeon, to his grandson, a boy at Eton, gives 

xii 



PREFACE 

us the christian name of the boy Waring. Unfor- 
tunately all clues are not of equal value, and I have 
not been able to identify either Power or Llewellyn 
on the strength of notes saying that the former was 
* an Irish gentleman,' and that the latter ' died in 
Wales of a damp bed.' 

Thus, in one way or another, it has been found 
possible to identify a very large proportion of the 
names, and had I stopped with the identification my 
task would have been accomplished much more quickly. 
But the standard for school and college registers is 
constantly rising, and it seemed desirable that an 
Eton Register should be at least as complete as that 
of any other school. Accordingly I have done my best 
to record the careers of all Etonians within the period, 
though naturally in many instances I have failed to 
find any particulars. For the purpose I have made 
great use of such books as Burke's Peerage^ Burke's 
Landed Gentry, the Admissions to the various Inns of 
Court, the Army Lists, and that invaluable treasure- 
house of biography, the Gentleman^ s Magazine, Nor 
has any book been more helpful than that stupendous 
achievement, Foster's Alumni Oxonienses, Great is 
my regret that the promised volumes of Alumni 
Cantahrigienses were not available for my purpose. To 
many it will perhaps seem that I have wasted my time 
by giving details easily accessible in various publications. 
But others, I hope, will excuse me for trying to make 
the register as complete in itself as possible. 

In the absence of any certainty, I have often in- 
dulged in conjecture. According to the laws of chance, 
a proportion of these guesses must be wrong, and I can 
only claim by way of excuse that, first, I have in 
nearly all cases had some reason for the conjecture — 
perhaps for instance the boy's father had been at Eton 
or his son came to Eton, or the date of matriculation 
or admission at the University coincides with that of 
his leaving Eton, or he was a subscriber to Musae 
Etonenses — and, secondly, that such conjectures are 
almost always marked by a * perhaps ' or a ' probably.'

PREFACE 

I cannot pretend that I have observed any particular 
proportion in the length of the biographies. I have 
not, for instance, attempted full accounts in the case 
of men so famous as the Duke of Wellington or Charles 
James Fox. Undistinguished men have often been 
given longer notices than their merits deserved. Indeed 
the length of the notice has often depended more on 
the amount of information discoverable than upoii 
anything else. 

A word or two may perhaps be said as to the 
arrangement according to which the names appear. 

In editing school-lists there are three possible plans : 
(i) to keep to the form of the school-list ; (2) to 
keep the names in the order in which they appear 
in the entrance-books ; (3) to arrange the names 
in alphabetical order. The first plan is perhaps the 
natural one to adopt where a single list is being 
annotated, or where lists are few and far between. It 
was adopted by Dr. Butler in his edition of the early 
Harrow lists, and also by Mr. Chetwynd-Stapylton in 
his Eton College Lists, and by the Old Etonian Asso- 
ciation in the registers for which that body has been 
responsible. But except for the fact that it is a con- 
venient arrangement for enabling one to see what has 
happened to boys in one's own remove, it is an un- 
satisfactory plan, entailing much repetition of names, 
much waste of space, many cross references, an ugly 
appearance, and a very complete index. There would 
have been no point in following such a plan in the 
present register. 

The second plan was also out of the question, 
owing to the absence of entrance-books for two-thirds 
of the period. 

There remained therefore the alphabetical plan, 
which has at least one advantage, namely that it 
renders any full index of names unnecessary. 

A difficulty, however, arises with regard to boys 
who afterwards changed their names. For those 
who did so while at school, cross references are pro- 
vided, and in. the case of those who changed them 

xiv

PREFACE 

subsequently, I have done my best to get over the 
difficulty by giving supplementary indexes. With re- 
ference to the former class it is something of a triumph, 
though largely a matter of luck, to have discovered 
that the Aldworth of 1 759-1 762 is the same as the 
Neville of 1 763-1 767 ; that the Osborne of 1753-54 
becomes the Ranby of 1756 to 1760 ; that the Pittman 
of 1779-80 is identical with the Coppin of 1 78 1 ; and 
the Jefferson of 1782-84 with the Sergison of 1785. 

Unfortunately no book of this sort can possibly 
claim to be complete, and I am well aware that there 
are few persons into whose hands these pages may fall 
who will not be able either to supplement or to correct 
the information herein contained. Indeed, a further 
and more prolonged search in the columns of the 
Gentleman's Magazine^ in the Army Lists, or among 
the Wills at Somerset House would without doubt 
have elicited additional details, and it is only by 
pleading that I have already spent a considerable 
amount of time over the work, and by taking refuge 
in that comfortable, if cowardly, French proverb that 
le mieux est Vennemi du hien, that I venture to commend 
this book with all its faults of commission and omission 
to the indulgence of my fellow Etonians. 

There remains the pleasant task of attempting to 
acknowledge my numerous debts. To begin with, I must 
thank Mr. Wasey S terry for unselfishly placing at my 
disposal such biographical notes as he had collected in 
the course of his Eton researches, as well as for urging 
me to undertake this register. In addition to all the use 
that I have made of the Complete Peerage and the 
Complete Baronetage of G.E.C., I am deeply indebted 
to the Hon. Vicary Gibbs, who is now re-editing the 
Peerage^ for looking through my proofs and saving 
me from many a blunder ; for such errors as have 
subsequently crept in, he is in no way responsible. 
Without the continuous and unstinted assistance of 
Mr. V. L. Oliver my notes on the many boys of West 
Indian connexion would have been sadly deficient. 
Similarly my friend the late Colonel W. Gordon McCabe, 

XV 



PREFACE 

the president, and Mr. W. G. Stanard, the secretary of 
the Virginia Historical Society, have helped me in every 
possible way with regard to the biographies of the 
American boys who, coming * home ' for their education, 
chose Eton as their school. I have been fortunate, too, 
in being able to draw on the unrivalled stores of the 
Rev. A. B. Beaven's knowledge for such Etonians as 
sat in Parliament or held any office of State. Mr. 
R. F. Scott, the Master of St. John's College, Cambridge, 
has furnished me with almost everything I could 
want relating to Etonians at his College, while Mr. 
T. U. Sadleir has supplied me with notes about those 
at Trinity College, Dublin, and Mr. F. L. Clarke with 
details about Etonians who proceeded to King's 
College, Cambridge. 

I am grateful to the Provost and Fellows at Eton 
for granting me at all times access to the information 
contained in the shelves of the College Library ; also to 
the Bursar for bringing to my attention the baptismal 
certificates of the Collegers. Further, my thanks are 
due to the authorities at the several colleges at 
Cambridge who have allowed me to search their registers 
of admission ; to Dr. J. Venn and Mr. J. A. Venn for 
help in the case of various Etonians afterwards at 
Cambridge University; to the Dean of St. George's 
Chapel, Windsor, to the Rector of Clewer, and to the 
Vicars of Eton and St. Mary's, Slough, for permission 
to search their registers ; to Mr. G. E. Lloyd-Baker 
for the use of the notes in the early MS. school-lists 
in his possession ; to Mr. A. E. Hamilton, of Messrs. 
Spottiswoode, Ballantyne & Co., Ltd., for his careful 
reading of the proofs for press ; and to Miss A. Brand- 
staetter for much clerical and personal assistance. 

To the many other correspondents who have helped 
in individual cases, I wish to place my thanks on record.

INTRODUCTION 

The period covered by the register is full of interest. It is 
hardly too much to say that, with the exception of the close 
of the sixteenth century, for which we possess Malim*s invaluable 
Consuetudinarium, it is not till the second half of the eighteenth 
century that we are at all familiar with life as it was lived by 
the Eton boy. For the seventeenth century we possess little 
information beyond the meagre curriculum of Dr. Mountague, 
and the few references in the Boyle and the Barrett corre- 
spondence. Again, the records for the first half of the eighteenth 
century are scanty in the extreme, and scarce exceed the rumours 
of a serious rebellion under Dr. George. Horace Walpole, who 
might have told us so much, contributes but little to our 
enlightenment. Even the two letters recently brought to light, 
written while he was a boy at Eton, contain little else than 
proofs of the affection which Walpole bore to his mother.^ 
But in the epoch with which we are dealing the case is very 
different, and thanks to the careful and laborious account of 
Eton discipline given by Thomas James, thanks to the more 
racy hints contained in the Nugae Etonenses, and to the lengthy 
characters of Etonians in the World newspaper, as well as 
to such Reminiscences as Henry Angelo's, and to numerous 
letters still extant, it is not difficult to realise the kind of life 
lived by the Etonian of that day. Indeed, the Eton which 
emerges in 1790, with its year divided by three regular periods 
of holidays, with its complicated time-table constantly upset 
by the arrival of a Saint's day, with its system of dames' houses 
already beginning to be encroached upon by the assistant 
masters, is not so very unlike what the oldest Etonians of to-day 
can still remember. 

Again, the period is notable for the new position which Eton 
assumed among public schools. In 1753, so far as size went, 
Eton was running a neck and neck race with her ancient rival, 
Westminster. The inspiring personality of Dr. Barnard brought

INTRODUCTION 

her numbers up from about 300 to over 500, and though they 
fell as low as 250 in 1775, when they were once more inferior 
to those of Westminster and almost surpassed by those of 
Harrow, yet under the careful rule of Dr. Davies they soon forged 
ahead, and at the end of the century were superior to those of 
any other school. 

Indeed, the year 1765 may be taken as the high-water mark 
of the century. With 522 boys Eton was relatively far larger 
than she is to-day, that is to say if we take into account the 
population of the British Isles then and now. It is true that her 
scholars on the foundation were still limited by the ancient statutes 
to boys born in England, Wales, or the Channel Isles — that is 
to say to the English possessions of her founder — but no such 
limitation existed in the case of oppidans. Thus, while the 
difficulties and the expense of travelling limited most schools to 
the boys living in their immediate neighbourhood, Eton, owing 
to the wealth of her clientele, had a large connexion among 
the leading families of Scotland and Ireland. Moreover, she 
attracted a considerable number from the West Indies and a 
sprinkling from the American colonies. The presence of boys 
from America is particularly interesting ; but it must be remem- 
bered that, at the beginning of the period at any rate, the leading 
families of America still looked on England as their ' home.' We 
shall see that most of the Americans who came to Eton belonged 
to the southern colonies, that is to Maryland, Virginia, and South 
Carolina. The reason for this is partly that it was to the southern 
colonies that many of the younger branches of the aristocracy 
had emigrated, and partly because the gentlemen of Virginia, and 
South Carolina in particular, were able more easily than their 
northern countrymen to realise money through the sale of their 
crops of tobacco, rice, and indigo. Further, the American 
colonies were practically devoid of public schools. The colleges 
of Harvard and Yale, then almost as much schools as univer- 
sities, were too far distant from the southern colonies, while 
the College of William and Mary in Virginia lay under the 
suspicion of improving neither the morals nor the learning 
of its students. Thus the easiest method for the southern 
gentry was to ship their sons off to England in the same 
vessel that carried a cargo of tobacco, and leave them there 
until they had finished their course at a school and a 
university, and perhaps rounded it off by a call to the English 
Bar. 

A study of the names to be found in the register will show 
what a cosmopolitan state English society had reached. In 



I 



INTRODUCTION 

addition to the native English, Welsh, Scottish, and Irish, we 
find French names represented by the Huguenot families of 
Amyand, Bosanquet, Gamier, Garrick, Giraud, Luard, and 
Portal, to mention but a few ; German names by Brinckman, 
Schutz, Pollnitz, Blomberg, and Wagner ; Dutch by Keppel, 
Vansittart, Vandeput, Vanneck, Dedel, and Coussmaker ; 
Italian by Angelo and Dominiceti ; Swedish by Lindegren ; 
Spanish by Casamajor ; and Swiss by De Salis and Noverre. 
Of the boys from America we find Virginia represented by such 
well-known families as Burwell, Fitzhugh, Grymes, Lee, 
Randolph, Wormeley, Spotswood, etc. ; South Carolina by 
Huger, Lynch, and Trapier ; Maryland by Dulany and Tilgh- 
man. The West Indian names are almost too numerous to 
mention, but prominent among them are those of Byam, Duer, 
Gunthorpe, Husbands, Redwood, Storer, Verchild, and White- 
home. 

Viewed from another aspect the society at Eton was decidedly 
more democratic than it is to-day. Whilst, on the one hand, 
Eton was never so full of representatives of the leading families 
as it was under the regime of Dr. Barnard, on the other hand it 
was still the practice for Eton and Windsor tradesmen to send 
their boys to the famous school which lay at their doors. More- 
over, the advantages of the foundation attracted boys of humble 
origin from the outside world. Thus tradesmen of the follow- 
ing description are to be found sending their sons to Eton : 
printer, hosier, vintner, ballet-master, coal merchant, shipwright, 
mercer, bricklayer, draper, packer, poulterer, cook, baker, 
druggist, tea-man, etc. 

It remains to enumerate a few of the walks of life in which 
Etonians distinguished themselves. The Army is represented 
by Wellington, Cornwallis, Hutchinson, and Simcoe ; the Navy 
by Duckworth, Williams, and Ogle ; the Church by Sumner, 
Beresford, Moss, and Simeon ; politics by Fox, Canning, Grey, 
Melbourne, and Windham ; scholarship by Porson and 
Wellesley ; literature by Hallam and Frere ; poetry by Hay ley ; 
painting by Beaumont ; music by Bates ; science by Bankes ; 
medicine by Pepys ; the stage by Fennell and Young ; and 
fashion by Brummell and Hanger. 

In reading the various biographies one may almost say that 
there were few events in the history of those times in which 
Etonians had not a hand. Thus, to take but a few instances. 
Lynch became one of the signers of the American Declaration 
of Independence ; Grieve^was notorious for having been the 
friend of Marat and the persecutor of Madame du Barry ; whilst

INTRODUCTION 

Fanshawe became governor of Kieff and died a Russian senator. 
Others, again, met with misfortune, deserved or undeserved : 
Lord George Gordon died in gaol, Pahner was transported to 
Botany Bay, and Fitzgerald was executed. But no career 
appears to have surpassed in variety that of Combe, the author 
of Dr. Syntax, who is said to have been in turn * a common 
soldier, a waiter at Swansea, a teacher of elocution, a cook at 
Douai College, and a private in the French army.' 



There is little that need be said with regard to the three 
provosts who held sway during this period. Neither Stephen 
Sleech, 1746-65, nor William Hayward Roberts, 1 781-91, was a 
man of any particular brilliance, while Edward Barnard, 1765-81, 
seems to have used the position as a place of rest after his 
strenuous years as headmaster. 

Nor is there much more to be recorded of the Fellows, of 
whom nearly all had moved entirely in the narrow worlds of 
Eton and King's College. The election, indeed, of Thomas 
Barnard, who belonged neither to Eton nor to King's, and who 
had spent some years of his life in the Barbados, was almost 
an outrage, and must be imputed to the influence exercised 
by his brother who was at that time Provost. Similarly the 
election of William Roberts, son of another Provost, to so com- 
fortable a sinecure, at the age of twenty-five, although of Eton 
and King's, comes as something of a shock, especially when 
we find that in order to qualify he had to procure his M.A. 
degree from Lambeth. 

Of the three headmasters — for Sumner's rule was practically 
finished when our period opens — ^who were responsible for the 
teaching and discipline of the school, Barnard was by far the 
most notable. His outstanding merit, helped perhaps by the 
fact that he had been private tutor to the sons of so important 
a person as Lord Townshend, caused him to be appointed 
headmaster, although he was neither a King's man nor an 
assistant. His success is proved by the fact that the numbers 
of the school nearly doubled during the eleven years of his rule, 
and that he maintained order over his turbulent kingdom without 
the occurrence of a single riot or rebellion so far as we know. 
To govern five hundred boys with the absurdly small staff at 
his command, and before the days of organised games, must 
have been a severe test, but Barnard emerged with a repu- 
tation which was denied to his successors Foster and Davies. 

xxii 



INTRODUCTION 

It is said that Barnard urged that Foster should be appointed 
as his successor, and if this be true, it is hardly a proof of the 
former's good judgment. For, admirable scholar as he was, 
Foster seems to have lacked the prestige and authority necessary 
to success. It is true that his apologists have suggested that 
he was unlucky, in that the storms which had been silently 
gathering under Barnard burst as soon as the latter had re- 
signed. But judging merely by results Foster must be written 
down a failure. In just over seven years the numbers had 
dropped to less than half what they were under Barnard, and 
there had been the serious rebellion of 1768, when so many 
boys had marched off to Maidenhead. Nor was the reign of 
Davies uniformly happy. There were grave disorders in 
1783, when it was thought that the headmaster would be 
compelled to resign, but he weathered the storm, and on his 
election to the provostship at the end of 1 791 was able to 
hand over the school to his successor with the numbers brought 
up to 400. 

The assistants were uniformly confined to King's men. 
Their number, which was eight in the earlier part of the century, 
but which had declined to six by 1745, rose with the numbers 
in the school, being increased to eight in 1754, and to the 
high-water mark of ten in 1760. The number fell to seven 
in 1773, but rose to eight again in 1788. The occasion in 
1783, on which, in the language of to-day, they * downed ' 
gowns and went ' on strike,' only returning to duty because of 
a rebellion by the boys, is described by Sir H. C. Maxwell Lyte.^

TUTORS 

In the period covered by the Register it seems to have been 
the general rule for every boy to have a tutor.^ The ordinary 
boy had for tutor one of the assistant masters, while some of 

* It does not however seem to have been compulsory, e.g. in the case 
of Arthur Lee (see Etoniana Mag. p. 211) and of one of the Worgans, 
against whose name in the school-list of 1788 the words 'no tutor' are 
definitely written {Ibid. p. 246). 

XXV 



INTRODUCTION 

the richer boys had private tutors, whom they either brought 
with them, or found already living at Eton. Boys with private 
tutors did not usually have an ordinary tutor as well, but the 
two Latouche brothers were an exception to this rule, having 
Baker as private tutor in addition to Goodall as ordinary tutor. 
There are few opportunities of discovering the tutors of boys 
at Eton in the eighteenth century, apart from the list of Eton 
College in 1788.* There is also a MS. list of 1780, giving boys 
down to end of remove with their tutors, in the MS. collection 
of school-lists in the College Library. 



PRIVATE TUTORS 

Four lists of these are in existence, viz. : 
(i) For 1763-66, given in Frankland's version of Nugae 
Etonenses.^ 

(2) For 1 78 1, printed in the Gentleman* s Magazine for Jan. 
1832. 

(3) For 1787, printed in the World newspaper 29 Sep. 1787.' 

(4) For 1788, in an MS. school-list.* 

In a few other cases we happen to know who the private 
tutor was, e.g. that Philip Francis was tutor to C. J. Fox, 
and Bower to Lord Glasgow. 

Besides the private tutors who actually came to Eton with 
their pupils, it seems to have been the practice for some tutors 
to set up at Eton and to make a profession of taking pupils. 
Thus in the list of private tutors given in Nugae Etonenses, 
we find Rice tutoring both Dutton and Hanger, and Macleod 
tutoring White, Carnegie, etc. • 

William Cole, who was an assistant from about 1778 to 1779, 
then resigned and became a private tutor. On the other hand, 
Edward Barnard went straight from the position of private 
tutor to that of headmaster without ever having been an assistant 
at all. 



DAY-BOARDERS 

In addition to the oppidans boarding at dames, there were 
a considerable number of day-boarders from Eton and Windsor 
who presumably lived at home, although usually possessing a 

* Etoniana Mag. pp. 244-248. ' Ibid. p. 158.

INTRODUCTION 

dame at whose house they had their meals and spent the time 
during which they were not in school or playing games. 

Such boys belonged to two very different classes : one com- 
posed of the sons of rich parents, perhaps with some official 
position at Windsor, e.g. Brudenell and the Tickells ; or of 
the sons of wealthy people living in the neighbourhood, e.g. the 
Chesshyres and the Holders ; or of the sons of parents who had 
come to Eton or Windsor for the express purpose of educa- 
ting their sons, e.g. Lowry and Gervais, both from Ireland.^ 

The second class were those who were the sons of local 
tradesmen, e.g. Chartres, Delavaux, Doble, Foster, Goldwin, 
etc. Such boys frequently got into College very young, and 
succeeded by seniority to King's College, Cambridge, at the 
expense of cleverer boys who got on to the foundation at a 
more mature age. This is one reason why in old days King's 
College produced comparatively few men of real distinction. 
In later times this class of boys became colloquially known as 
Eton or Windsor * birds.' ^ 

FEES 

Dr. Barnard in his entrance-book is usually careful to give 
the amount of the entrance-fee. The usual fee was l;i-2S,y 
but the sons of wealthy parents often gave three, four, five, 
and up to ten guineas. On the other hand, poorer boys often 
gave one guinea or nothing. All the entrance-fees went to 
the headmaster. The amount of the fee is sometimes a help 
towards identifying the boy, especially when it was a large 
one. 

DAMES 

In the period covered by this Register, with but few 
exceptions, such Eton boys as were oppidans boarded at dames* 
houses. This had been the custom from very early times, 
for even in 1479 we find William Paston mentioning his * hostess.' 
Indeed, there were probably * dames ' long before there were 
assistant masters. In the latter part of the eighteenth century, 
however, the practice of assistants taking boarders was gradually 
creeping in. Probably these were taken at first as private 
pupils, and at a much higher fee than boys were in the habit of 
paying to their dames. Evidence of this is to be found in the 

* Papendiek, Court and Private Life in the Time oj Queen Charlotte, 
vol. i, pp. 317, 325. 

' Etoniana Mag. p 234.

INTRODUCTION 

account-book of William Hayward Roberts who, while he was 
assistant, from 1759 to 177 1, had always some half-dozen boarders 
living with him and paying about ^fioo per annum, at a time 
when the usual charge of a dame was but £2^.^ Besides the 
oppidans, every colleger had a dame allotted to him, who 
tended him when he was sick, and at whose house he could 
find temporary refuge from the noise of Long Chamber. 

For the period under review we can construct a fairly 
complete list of the dames — or dominies as they were called 
when they were of the male sex. In the first place Dr. 
Barnard in entering the boy*s name nearly always added his 
dame. Next after Barnard's day we find lists of dames given 
in Nugae Etonenses, c. 1763-67 ; others can be gleaned from 
an extant day-book {c, 1771-74) of Thomas Pote, the Eton 
bookseller, for he entered the dame of each boy who made a 
purchase at his shop ; there is yet another list of dames given 
in the Worli newspaper of 29 Sep. 1787 ; and, finally, there is 
a MS. school-list giving most of the boys at Eton in 1788 with 
their dames and tutors.^ 

The following is a list of the dames between 1753 and 1790, 
many of whom, although spinsters, were styled * Mrs. ' : 

Arden, Miss, c. 1758-72. The house (part of Baldwin's Shore) 
was kept by two or three sisters, the daughters of George 
Arden of Ombersley, co. Worcester. One sister married 
Robert Carey Sumner, headmaster of Harrow. 

Bagwell, Miss, c, 1754-69. Several sisters of this name lived 

at Gulliver's. 
Barnardiston, Mrs., c. 1751-58. She lived at Baldwin's Shore. 
Bland, Mrs., c, 1739-58. Perhaps Susanna Bland, a niece of 

Provost Bland ; she married William Kimber, a doctor, of 

Windsor. As a dame she probably lived at Weston's. 
Brookland, Miss, 1783-87. She was Elizabeth, daughter of 

William Brookland, an attorney at Windsor. She was niece 

of Miss Tyrrell {q.v) ; h, 1745, buried at Windsor 3 Dec. 1787. 

She lived in the house next to the Corner House. 
Da VIES, Mrs., c. 1763-96. Margaret, sister of Jonathan Davies, 

headmaster of Eton 1773-91 ; she lived at Evans' ; she 

was buried at Eton 10 Nov. 1796. 
Duckworth, Mrs., c. 1758 ; remained for a very short time. 

She may have been the wife of the Rev. Henry Duckworth, 

a minor canon of Windsor.

George was an assistant at Eton. They lived in the northern 
half of the Corner House. 

Gregory, Mrs., c. 1750-85. Prince Gregory, one of the clerks 
of St. George's Chapel, Windsor, who was perhaps a son 
of Richard Gregory, the Eton College cook, married Mary 
Barnard, of Windsor. Mrs. Gregory and her daughter Lucy 
between them kept this house, the mother dying at the end 
of 1770. They lived in the southern half of the Corner House. 

Hannington, Mrs., c. 1771-95. She was presumably the widow 
of J. Hannington, a sugar-baker from Barbados, and prob- 
ably came to Eton to be near her son who was at Eton 
1770-77. She died 27 Dec. 1807 at Hanwell, Middlesex, 
in her 88th year. She lived in the northern half of the 
Corner House. 

Harding, Mr., c. 1 756-1 805. Brian Harding, who was probably 
a relation of Timothy Harding, college cook (d. 1698), 
held this house and was succeeded by Elizabeth Harding. 
Brian Harding was a draper and maltster. He lived at 
Baldwin's End. 

Harrington, Miss, c. 1787-93. Sarah Harrington, perhaps a

succeeded her sister Mrs. Hopkins as dame. She died 
19 Mar. 1785 and was succeeded by a Mr. Hird. They 
lived at Baldwin's Bee.

EXPLANATORY NOTES 

The basis upon which the register has been compiled is my 
volume of Eton College Lists, 1 678-1 790. The names therein- 
found have been placed in alphabetical order, after being sup- 
plemented by forty-two additional names. The majority of 
these extra names are to be found in Barnard's MS. Entrance- 
book, but do not appear in the Eton College Lists, owing to the 
fact that their owners stayed for such a short time, viz. Aston, 
Austin, Barnett, Basil (2), Burke, Cleobury, Denton, Evors, 
Fenton (W. S. M.), Grieves, Hare (Charles), Hayley (John), 
Herbert (R. C), Irvine, Martin (William), Prescot (Charles), 
Randolph (2), Rolling, Skip, Solby, Tilghman, Wilson (D.), 
and Worrall. 

Certain other names have been recovered from the collection 
of MS. School-lists 1 775-1 799 in the College Library, viz. Le Hunt, 
Poellnitz, Popleton, and Spry. 

In addition a few names have been inserted on the authority 
of the Dictionary of National Biography, viz. Fitzgerald (G. R.), 
Hamilton (Archibald), Smith (William Cusac), Steevens, and 
Towry. 

Two names, viz. Wade and Masters, are inserted on the 
strength of a very circumstantial paragraph appearing in the 
London Chronicle for 7 December 1784. 

Again the burials in the Eton Parish Register provide us 
with one extra name, viz. Griffith (Christopher). 

The Register of Admissions at Trinity College, Cambridge, 
supplies us with one, viz. Anstey (Christopher), and that at 
Trinity College, Dublin, with another, viz. Barry. 

The baptismal certificates of successful candidates for Eton 
College provide us with two, viz. Atkins (Samuel) and Maule

INTRODUCTION 

(George), for owing to the prevailing custom by which candi- 
dates for College nearly always entered the school as oppidans, 
it seems probable that these two boys should be included in 
the register. 

Finally, one boy, Bramston, is included on the strength of a 
statement in Alumni Felstedienses (1903), p. 16. 

Unfortunately owing to the fact that we possess as a rule 
only one School-list for each year, and not one for each school- 
time, it is impossible to pretend that the Register records every 
boy who was at Eton between 1753 and 1790 (apart from the 
fact that no list has survived for the year 1755), but it is reason- 
able to suppose that the omissions are not very numerous. 

After the names come the dates between which the boys 
appear in the School-lists. As a rule it is only for the period 
1754-65, covered by Dr. Barnard's Entrance-book, that we know 
the actual dates when boys were admitted. Consequently most 
of the dates can only be taken as approximately correct. Fre- 
quently the boy must have come to the school in the autumn 
half, and therefore — as lists were usually compiled at Election 
times — was there the year before that actually given ; and 
often a boy will have left in the spring, and therefore have 
stayed into the year following that actually set down. It is 
only occasionally that there is sufficient proof to warrant 
making the dates more precise. 

After the dates there sometimes follows ma., mi., or tnin.y as 
given in the School-lists, but it is not possible to rely too closely 
on such evidence as might hereby be expected. Often the 
compiler of the MS. list forgot to insert such distinguishing 
marks, nor does it seem quite certain that when he did remember 
to add them they always denoted brothers. 

Next come, when they are known, within brackets the name 
of the dame and tutor, with this exception however, that when 
the admission of the boy occurs in Barnard's Entrance-book, 
the dame's name follows the date of admission as in his book, 
and is followed in turn by the amount of the fee, when it 
is recorded. 

A few remarks may be apposite with regard to the age at which 
boys entered and left the school. As might have been expected, 
there was a wide divergency. We find, for instance, boys coming 
to the school at the tender age of four, especially those boys 
whose parents resided at Eton, e.g. Thomas Dampier, whose 
father was Lower Master, and Edward Cooke. On the other 
hand some boys arrived as old as fifteen or sixteen. 

The age of leaving was not so very different from that of

INTRODUCTION 

the present day. If a few precocious boys entered the Univer- 
sity at fourteen, fifteen, or sixteen, e.g. two of the Strettells 
and Charles James Fox, the majority waited till they were 
eighteen or nineteen. Collegers especially, who were not super- 
annuated till nineteen, were in the habit of staying on as late as 
possible, in the hope of succeeding to a vacancy at King's. 

It is true Canning in a letter^ states that oppidans only 
remained till the age of seventeen, but this cannot be said to 
have been universally or even generally true. 

It will be seen that it was easily possible for a boy, especially 
a Colleger, to stay at the school for twelve years ; indeed we find 
instances in the cases of Henry and Thomas Dampier. The 
claim, however, by Dr. Edward Scott,^ that his grandfather 
John Scott went to Eton at the age of five and remained till he 
was twenty-one, is not borne out by the facts contained in this 
register. 

With regard to scholars elected to King's, it should be 
mentioned that the date of their admission to King's College 
is given, and not that of their election, which was often a year 
earlier. 

It will be noted that boys were frequently admitted to the 
University some time before they left Eton, and also that 
matriculation was often long delayed at Cambridge. 

Another fact worth pointing out is that boys standing for 
College were nearly always already in the school as oppidans.^ 
There are several cases, also, of boys apparently resigning their 
scholarships and remaining on as oppidans, e.g. Duke (J.), 
Filewood, Jesse, Leycester (R.), Morgan (T.), Plumptre (C.), 
and Wickes. 

It seems unnecessary to set out at length any list of the 
authorities consulted, as they are given at the end of each 
biography ; and it is believed that such contractions as have 
been used will be readily understood. But a word of explana- 
tion may be advisable as to a few.
