|Boys at Sherborne School
The grammar school at Sherborne in Dorset, which doubtless existed from the creation of the diocese of Sherborne in 705, was refounded by king Edward VI in 1550. At the quatercentenary in 1950, a fourth edition of the Sherborne Register was published, listing boys entering the school during those four centuries. In truth, the materials for this register survive but fitfully before 1823; for some years, no names are known; sometimes all that is known is a surname. But from 1823 onwards the lists and the details get steadily more comprehensive. There remained, however, this list of names clearly legible on the panelling of the School House Dining Hall (the ancient schoolroom), but without date and not otherwise traceable. They may be from the period 1800 to 1822. Some are just surnames: some have an initial.
