http://books.google.com/books?id=AQoCAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA489&dq=school jackson intitle:school&hl=en&sa=X&ei=PGdzUfHxJIGZiQKMmIGQCA&ved=0CGYQ6AEwCDgU#v=onepage&q=school jackson intitle:school&f=false

This is a very fascinating book..... Has a lot of information about the men & boys who attended. The part on Samuel Pepys & John Milton was interesting...

P 489 Lists 18 Different Jacksons:

Francis Henry: James: John: John: John Jackson: John Thurmond: Lawrence Morris: Nathaneel: Nicholas: Peter Radley: Samuel: Sydney Flower: Thomas: Thomas: Thomas: Walter: & William.....

They each have their own pages too!

"After the introduction and the fasti, the work is divided into sections, according to the reign of each High Master. The name of the High Master is followed by that of his Surmasters and other Assistants......"

So the books talks about the school around the time of Henry VIII, the founders, the art work, the governors, the masters, the studies, the scholars......

It begins its records in 1508 and ends in 1881..... and under each is the name of someone & some important thing that they did. So in 1575-76 "a grant was made to John Meeke, the Chief Bellringer of Pawles towards his paines in bringing to light an 'old pervy of easement (privy)".....

The first Jackson appears on page 33 as a Scholar under High Master Alexander Grill 1605-1635. "Thomas Jackson: Exhibitioner 1614-23, Trinity College, Cambridge; B.A. 1619"

HOLY Crapola Batman: John Milton is listed here on page 35! On page 44: Samuel Pepys (Peapes)!

The second Jackson appears on page 50 under High Master Samuel Chromleholme 1657-1672: "Nathaneel (sic) Jackson: Son of N.J. of Boston, Lincolnshire. Deceased. St. John's College, Cambridge, March 23rd, 1659 (aged 15), B.A. 1663; M.A. 1667"

"Edmund Lawley: Poor scholar 1671-72" "Hugh Nurse: Poor scholar 1671-72"

And there was Samuel Johnson: the "Library Keeper" who gained much perfection in Oriental languages and was "prosecuted for libel for the defence of his work: 'Julian the Apostle' and was sentenced.... He was also a: "Poor Scholar".

In the 1770's many of the scholars were as young as 7-12 years of age!

And so it goes...... ( )
