Charities:
The School was founded by James (Margetson), Archbishop of Armagh, by will, dated 30th May 1678. The endowment consists of a school, school-house, and garden, and a rentcharge of £60 per annum. There are nine governors (of whom the Vicar of Birstall for the time being is one) ; they are a body corporate, and have a common seal. The Master and senior Fellows of Peter House, Cambridge, have the nomination of the chief Master. The school was one of considerable repute, and was well attended ; but, at the time the Commissioners made their Report, the free instruction was confined to 12 boys between the ages of seven and ten years, who were taught reading, English, writing, and classics ; but no boy to continue a free scholar beyond the age of ten years. -Vide 17th Report, Page 720.
