The Reverend Ralph Tollemache's Parish School for Witham, Lincolnshire - an Appeal - 1860

The information below has been generously provided by Susan Tollemache and her brother, Peter Tollemache. The transcription of the names and the original images are the work of Susan herself and are received with gratitude. Click on the Manners seal image to return to source pages.

Susan writes: "In 1860, the Reverend Ralph W. L. Tollemache-Tollmache M.A. J.P, Rector of South Witham, near Grantham in Lincolnshire, sent out a printed form requesting a contribution of 1/- to finance the building of a school in the parish. The following is a list of those who contributed. The amounts given varied. Some were folded up in the notice and then this was sealed with wax and stamped with a signet ring. These seals along with the notes and signatures are glued in three exercise books.

Not all the notes were complimentary; some pointing out it was illegal to put coins of the realm into the mail. Others I have re-read recently suggeested he should ask his relations who were "obviously" well off, namely Earl Dysart. Others said they were sorry they could only afford 1/-. Another I saw, gave 2/6d and there is one that has the image of 12 red stamps staining the back of the letter. The seals are interesting, in their own right.

If any name spellings are incorrect, my apologies - it’s because the handwritten signatures were difficult to read. I have been unable to ascertain whether a school was established as a result of this collection. There is a Modern School in the general vicinity called “the Dysart School”. "

Site Note: The family Tollemache is a key family in the maternal line of this site. The family also descends from Manners, Dukes of Rutland and from the family, Murray. Tollemache family of Helmingham has connections with Cromwell family and thence also with Smyth/e.
