EDUCATION.

A school was mentioned in 1604. (fn. 29) Thereafter there seems generally to have been no school in the parish (fn. 30) before 1865, when the incumbent put the children to a dame school, where the boys stayed until 8 or 9; there was also a Sunday school in common with Ashington. (fn. 31) In 1871 the children attended school at Thakeham or Sullington. (fn. 32)
