An ongoing research project

By John Bibby

I am researching a history of Elmfield College (York, 1860s-1930s) and would be delighted to hear regarding any of your ancestors who were associated with this college. (Please see the Wikipedia article, much of which I have written - but I have a lot more information besides.)

I'd be glad to hear from anyone with information or interested in Elmfield College in York. I'd particularly like to track down copies of 'The Elmfieldian'. I'm currently writing something based on letters sent home from the trenches by old boys during WW1 - is anybody else doing anything similar?

I'd also be interested to hear anything about the history of Primitive Methodism in York.

I too am seeking 'Elmfieldians' - but only relating to the first war period (so covering say 1900-1919) as I am trying to build some kind of picture of the lads who went to war - for all three schools (inc Ashville & New Colleges) and did not return. This week, York Library tell me they have an August, 1917 copy! I'm too far away to go and digitally photograph it. But I will. Your fine Wiki site is most useful. Sadly Bill Booth's wealth of material - including 'Elmfieldians' presumably (as he quotes freely) - seems lost - to the Ashville archive anyway. They have nothing as I understand it. Good wishes, Nick J Ashville 64-70

Dear Sir, 

I have a few letters from Cephas Hartley, Claude La Chesnais - a young french student-, his mother and father. It is quite emotional. All these documents are from about 1911-1913.

Yours faithfully

 

Post scriptum : how can I get your book on Elmfield ?
