Hi,

Looking in particular for William Chivers and Daniel New in the 1880's.

Have you checked Berkshire Archives' catalogue?

Checking the newspapers for the period 1880-90 I can see -
Boys' British School
St. Bartholomew's Grammar School
Woodspeen House School
Ashley School
Broadway School
West Street National School
Hampstead Norreys School
High School
Wesleyan School

Some of the above may be girls only!
S. Wales, Somerset, Devon - Oxenham

Aberavon - Hopkin/s, Jenkins, Thomas
St. Brides/Wick - Jenkins
Llanblethian -  Price
Abergwynfi -  Han(d)ford
Pontardawe -  Lewis.

Okay, Daniel New b. 1876 admitted 1883 yes he is our man.
The other William Chivers was born 1862, so maybe another Chivers family member.

jon,
Wondering if there is a Frederick Edwin Lipscombe also admitted to the same school in 1883.
What website did you find for this, would be great to go through to check on other family members

Jon if you are still available to assist, would really love to know more on whether Frederick Edwin Lipscombe was attending St. Nicholas Church of England School around that time.   Have tried Berkshire Records Catalogue, but cannot seem to get any further information. We live in Australia so it makes it difficult for searching.
