"Population 242. There is £950 left to establish a school in the 3 per cents and £300 in the South Sea annuities, which sums have not yet been received, as they are not to be appropriated till the death of a Mrs Johnson, who is very old, and the rector is fearful the £300 will be lost. A school kept in the vestry at which the children pay for education. The poor have the means of education."
