Day Schools in Carmarthenshire in 1847

This Carmarthenshire 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 in the Parochial Table of Day Schools, separated by county and  hundred; there is a separate table for Sunday Schools  - and also separate   reports which are well worth investigating

The Carmarthenshire section of the Parochial Tables for Day Schools starts on page 2 and ends on page 32 (entries take up 4 pages).

The abbreviations for type of school adopted here are those used in the Reports themselves

  • Ch = Church of England
  • Br = British  [& Foreign School Society]
  • B = Baptist
  • I = Independent
  • CM = Calvinistic Methodist
  • W = Wesleyan
  • O = Other denominations
  • P = Private adventure
  • U = Union workhouse
  • Wks = Workmen's school

The names in brackets below the parish names are the Hundreds  plus page number in the Reports - useful  for finding the full data entries on the NLW site

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 the following which are online
