1891

This is one of the earliest pictures we have. It is said to be of a Mattishall class group dating about 1891. It was donated by Doris Eveline Williamson who was born in 1919. As her father was born in Yaxham so we can only assume the picture contained her mother Eveline Frances Coe or maybe her family who all lived at Mattishall Burgh in 1879. Unfortunately we never asked Doris any questions so sadly we can now only guess.

1904

There is no question as to the date of this one as the board clearly shows 1904. At this time chalk boards were still used in the class room so this could have been one of them.

Rowland Hill is first left in the top row with Stanley Fisher third followed by David Smith firth his brother George Smith is also in the top row, third from the right.
Headmistress Miss Elizabeth Johnson is far right and appears to have her eye on a boy in the top row, maybe a big smile was not allowed.

1911 - Second from the right on the back row is Archie Sainty born December 29th 1899. Archie's father (Henry) was the village policesman. His elder sister Beatrice worked in the village Post Office before marrying Richard Bailey and taking over Honinham Post Office. Archie himself married Emma Helen Shibley in 1927 and worked for Smith & Sons wholesale chemists in Magdalen Street Norwich for 42 years. He died in 1962.

If anyone has one of these pictures we would love to copy, as this is the only one we have and it is a very low resultion scan.

This school picture was taken about 1922 - as it was a long picture it has been divided into two sections - This being the left.
