Berkshire / Craufurd College Maidenhead
« on: Sunday 16 September 12 20:08 BST (UK)  »
Does anyone have any information about Craufurd College in Maidenhead? It was founded in about 1830 by J.D.M. Pearce and stood on Gringer Hill. The college was huge and the grounds extended right down to College Avenue where the current Claires Court Girls school is (formerly the Convent of the Nativity).
I have tried the Library, Google and the Berkshire Record Office with very little success!
I am particularly interested in why it got its name.

Many thanks!
