CHULMLEIGH - BOARDERS AT JOHN TUKE'S SCHOOL IN 1861

 

The 1861 census shows  many changes had taken place in John Tuke's school since 1851. He himself was already 63 years old and he was facing the effects of competition from John Walling Brooks and the Rock Hill Academy close by.

The first thing to notice is that there are girls boarding at the school. Two of his daughters, Maria and Harriet, are described as governesses and a third, Clara aged 18, is described as a teacher of Music.

But the boys have not entirely deserted their old master  - just six remain and one can only assume that the Tukes were using the two houses which formed their school as separate establishments.
