Stuntney School


The Revd. Harvey Goodwin D.D. (Dean of the Cathedral Church of the Holy and Undivided Trinity in Ely and the Chapter of the same Church) gave to the Rector and Chapel wardens of Holy Cross, Stuntney, the piece of land known as the Chapel yard, together with the slip of land forming the approach to the area from the public roadway. Henry Lawrence, Gentleman of the City of Ely, was associated with the gift, which was to be the site of a school for the education of children and adults of labouring, manufacturing and other poor classes in the hamlet or Chapelry of Stuntney and for no other purpose. The gift took place on 24th October 1862. The school was built and flourished for many years. The first pupil, Alice Howlett, was admitted in 1868. Stuntney School was closed in July 1983.

The following names are extracted from the book named above between the dates of 1868-1901. Early names only list the year of admission with the later ones having exact dates. I have put them alphabetically by surname for the year in which they are admitted. There are 123 different surnames up to 1901.

This list is only intended as a research aid as it was not taken from a primary source of information.
