This chapter is available for sale as a PDF (Portable Document Format) file for the price of £2.50.  After purchase, the chapter will be sent to you by email.





Education records can give you a clear view of life in the parish in which your ancestor lived as well as details of parents and possibly siblings.  School Board and School Manager records are more general but give good background information on education in general as well as the occasional facts on individuals.  Records from the individual schools are best for information on specific children.

This chapter contains details on:

  • a brief history of education
  • schools in Gloucestershire
  • the type of records to be found
  • log books
  • admission registers
  • attendance registers
  • punishment books
  • accident books
  • evacuees
  • how to find a school
  • evening classes
  • universities
