Prefatory Note to the 1914 Register .
In the following year the premises were acquired by the Quarterly Meeting, and in January, 1829, that Meeting took over the management of the School and installed John Ford, then aged 28, as Head Master.
The removal of the School to other premises was contemplated in 1843, and actually carried out in January, 1846, when the present premises in Bootham were acquired.
This Register is intended to cover the whole period of the School's history from 1822 to the present time. Unfortunately, however, the early records are very imperfect, and it has been impossible to ascertain the names of all the pupils who attended the School during the first years of its existence.
Forward to the 1935 Register .
This new edition of the Bootham School Register is based on the previous Register edited by George Henry Mennell, in 1914, material for which was largely collected by E. Mitford Abraham and F.Corder Clayton. With very considerable modifications, the whole of the old Register is included in this new volume.
I am indebted to J. Henry Fryer and Arthur Rowntree for their aid in revising the proofs.
