Day Schools in Caernarfonshire in 1847

This Caernarfonshire database consists of day schools which existed in 1847 included here within an alphabetical list of parishes 
It contains the names and types of day schools listed in the Reports of the Commissioners of Inquiry into the State of Education in Wales published in 1847, the infamous Blue Books.

These complete Reports can be viewed in detail on the National Library of Wales site where, in the Appendices, extensive data on individual  schools is shown ; there is a separate table for  Sunday Schools  - and also separate parish based reports under Minutes of Evidence which are well worth investigating

The Caernarfonshire section of the Tabular Report of Day Schools in the Appendices starts on page 178 and ends on page 192 (entries take up 4 pages).

If a parish isn't listed below then it has no Day School entries in the Reports

For further  reading there is a bibliography of books/articles on education in Wales on Genuki Wales - including several online
