Female School Society, Campbeltown, early 1800s

Postby STG » Sun Sep 01, 2013 3:11 pm

While researching some family material in the archives in Lochgilphead, I came across mention of a "Female School Society" in Campbeltown. Materials for the school had been purchased from Archibald and Nathaniel McNair in 1830.

There is also a brief mention of the "female schools" in The Campbeltown Book, page 179.

I'd be interested to know more. Can any forum member provide more information?

Thanks and regards
