    General Register vol 1

    Before digital data bases, BGS administration relied on a leather-bound General Register. Volume I, dating from 1870-1911, is the most interesting of the six General Registers, because it includes a School roll and list of staff and trustees for both BGS and BGGS, as well as a handwritten record of every student. Many of the comments by staff provide amusing pen portraits of the students. One of the earliest entries is that of Old Boy Richard Powell Francis (BGS 1870-1877). ​​
