Education Provision 1833

Marsh Gibbon Parish (Pop, 812)

Two Sunday Schools (commenced since 1818); one supported by the Rector and Curate, is attended by 50 males and 80 females, the other maintained by Independent Dissenters, consisting of about 50 children of both sexes.

There are Schools wherein females are taught lace-making, and occasionally to read, but they, like the Sunday Schools, afford but scanty means of instruction, and a daily School is greatly needed.
