Websites that help to explain our history

The internet has many websites that are useful to understand how England, Great Britain and the United Kingdom changed over time and how these changes impacted on Eton Wick.

The first site here is Education in England, the history of our schools. Eton Wick gained its first School building in 1840 and the Eton Wick Census records do reveal the children who were receiving an education. In 1851 the census indicates that there were 76 children recorded as "Scholars".

Derek Gillard the author of Education in England says  "Education in England aims to provide students, teachers, lecturers and researchers - and anyone else who is interested - with information and original source material relating to the development of England's school system."
