With the news last week of the closure of the last Private School in Weston - Ashbrooke House - I have started to compile a database of all similar schools in Weston over the years of which there were many. I will collect information from Street Directories, Censuses, newspapers etc and if any of you have found ancestors with connections to any of these or others - I would be pleased to add them to the list.
