Examination books, 1869-1872

 Item — Box: 3, Folder: 16
Call Number: MSS 6, Series II

Scope and Contents

Contains academic examination papers for Edward Lloyd Pease, the son of Henry Pease. Dating from 1869-1872, when Edward was between the ages of eight and eleven, the items evidence evaluation in composition, history, religion, and mathematics. All writing is done in pen and black ink, although an instructor (an Algernon C.P. Coote) has made comments in purple ink in the 1872 test booklet. The instructor notes particularly that Edward should not “write about things…not in the question.” The examination papers indicate that they were likely administered at Pierremont, Henry Pease’s estate in Darlington. An 1874 roster for Oliver’s Mount School in Scarborough, which includes Edward, shows that after these examinations, he advanced to the boarding school.
