School Log Book - Pupils, 1879 - 1897

With the kind permission of the Head Teacher of Kelvedon Hatch School, History House has been given access to the School Log Book for 1879 - 1897, and a great deal of information has now been copied from them. The Head Teacher was required to report weekly in the Log Book on any events during the week which were unusual, comments on attendance, equipment supplied, visits by the School Board, School Inspectors, yearly School Reports, admissions, re-admissions, and those who had left. Some of the pupils included those who lived in the parish of Doddinghurst and Navestock.

Below, are the names of those who were entered in the registers as admitted, re-admitted, or marked left. Some marked left were also described as "left the parish" or "left the neighbourhood". Some who had played truant were often marked as left and re-admitted on several occasions.

Kelvedon Hatch, 1840 - 1920: A Guided Tour

Go on a guided tour of Kelvedon Hatch, Essex, during the 19th and early 20th centuries. With the help of photographs, newspapers, parish records and census returns, the story of each house is revealed, as are the lives of some of their occupants.

It was a parish of many contrasts: from wealthy land-owners living in grand Georgian mansions with numerous servants, to agricultural workers struggling against poverty in overcrowded and dilapidated cottages. Discover how the landscape changed after the common land was enclosed, and how farmers struggled to cope with the agricultural depression. Find out about the role of the parish in WW1 when it was at the front line of Britain's fight against the Zeppelins. See how the new school was established and functioned, and why a new parish church was built. There are stories of crime, bankruptcy, poverty, scandal, revenge, leisure and migration.

Even if you have never been to Kelvedon Hatch, with the help of detailed maps and photographs, you will find yourself immersed in its history.

128 pages, 11 maps and diagrams, 77 black and white photographs
