Schools

  • "Hugh Westwood, Esq., founded a free grammar school in the first year of the reign of Elizabeth, and endowed it with the impropriate tithes of Chedworth, and a messuage and tenement, now producing about £600 per annum, vested by an act of incorporation, passed in the fourth of James I (Ed: 1606/7), in the patronage of the Provost and Scholars of Queen's College, Oxford, who appoint a master, and pay him two-thirds of the annual income, and an usher the remainder. The scholars on the foundation are usually very few; but they are entitled to share with the schools of Gloucester, Cheltenham, and Chipping-Campden, in the exhibitions at Pembroke College, Oxford, instituted by George Townsend, Esq., who also gave property producing £10 per annum for the instruction of twelve poor boys, a similar sum for eighteen poor girls, and an annual sum for apprenticing a poor boy: they are taught in a National school, the Society having aided its erection by a grant of £80."
