Help Deciphering This Please (completed with thanks)
« on: Tuesday 03 March 09 22:06 GMT (UK) »
Hello

Can anyone help to decipher what this information says please the household was a school?  It is taken from an entry on the 1851 census, and if possible help needed with the writing that comes under the heading of 'occupation'?

Many thanks
Ewan

Priest without Care of Souls - which means he didn't have his own Parish.

Priest without care of souls Intra/Father St N College
BC ?? Fellow & Father of St N C
undergraduate at Lincoln College
Student St N. College
ditto
ditto, etc

Have seen the same terminolgy used for Anglican clergy in various census as well, not having their own parish. It must be a CofE School not a RC one, as in 1861 George W TEMPLE appears to be married and is the Curate at Herne, Kent.

Sometimes if you can turn the image into a negative one it can make reading and deciphering the writing a bit easier.

Could the letter after the B be a rounded A rather than a C - then it would be Bachelor of Arts   :-\

Could well be as it's not like the 'C' at the end of the line - though you'd expect Mr HEWITT also to show qualifications.

To date then:
(HEWITT) Priest without care of Souls. Tutor St N College
(TEMPLE) BA(?) Probty {i.e. Probationary} Fellow & Tutor St N C
                                 undergraduate Lincoln College
(SIDEBOTTHAM) Student St N College

Later note:  See amendment in later post

Looks like you've got it JAP. Wondered afterwards about the Probty being probationary.
