Education in Little Bromley
Reports and returns on schools and education in Little Bromley. These allow a glimpse into the education your ancestors may have received if they were from this parish.
"Population 350. A legacy of £3 per annum was left by the late incumbent, which, with the assistance of the parish and the rector, affords instruction to about 70 children on Sundays. The teacher has £5 7s. and the clerk for teaching singing, £2 12s. yearly.
Two daily schools kept by women, in which there are about 35 children taught to read. Some of the poor are without the means of education, but were there a free school, the rector thinks the children would be sent more regularily."

"Population 383. Two Daily Schools, containing 14 males and 27 females, are partly supported by private charity and partly by payments from the parents of the children. One Sunday School, composed of the children who attend the Daily Schools, with 2 males in addition, is supported by an endowment of £3 per annum."

New options from Findmypast
Findmypast have announced a change to their offerings to UK family historians.
There are now three options: Starter, Plus and Pro. The big change is that Plus and Pro now allow access to the 1939 Register even on a monthly package.
Their website contains more information and sets out the difference between the options.
