Not my area either, but surely some mistranscriptions in there?

For example, should "Mistery Peace" read (e.g.) "Mistley Place"?

Can you give us the person's name?

The NA has a 1930s entry for Mistley Place School:

The school apparently placed a war memorial in Mistley Church:

John attended Mistley Place School, Mistley.

Newspaper reports covering its sale in 1946 say that it was "formerly a well-known Preparatory School for boys, successfully run for many years by Mr E.M. Jackson who has now retired".

The property comprised an early 19th century residence with 18 bedrooms, set in 9 acres of grounds.
