Ayton Public School Admission Registers
The data in these records has been transcribed from two admission registers which have been referred to as Register 1 and Register 2
Register 1 which is called "Register of admission, progress and withdrawal" runs from 27/6/1883 to 18/4/1911
Register 2 which is called "Register of Admission" runs from 1/6/1911 to 16/6/1941
The registers are slightly different in design, but many of the columns are common to both. The columns marked * are relevant to register 1 only and those marked # are relevant to register 2 only. All other columns are common to both registers.
The data was transcribed by members of Ayton Local History Society during 2013. Great care was taken during subscribing to ensure accuracy. However with so many records it is possible that errors have been made. If anyone using the data thinks there is an error they should contact the society by email. It is also possible that errors were made by teachers when the entries were first made in the register. Some of these have been found and noted in the "Other information" column.
The records have been sorted alphabetically by child's surname
Most columns are self explanatory but others are explained below.
Surname of child
Some children have (a) (b) or (c) entered after their name. This was to differentiate between contemporary pupils with the same name. Some have (E) against their names and these were evacuees during the Second World War.
Address of Parent or Guardian
All addresses are in the Ayton district unless stated otherwise.
If a child left the school but was readmitted at a later date then this second column could be used to enter the readmission date. However its use is not consistent and sometimes a child was given a new admission number and a new entry in the register when returning to the school.
Any notes or additional information not fitting into the standard columns is entered here. Also several notes of explanation have been added in italics by the transcribers where appropriate. This column is not part of the original register.
Whether exemption from religious instruction is claimed
There are only eight entries in this column. One "no" and seven "yes".
This is either 1 or 2 to identify the two registers as explained above. If there are any queries about any of the data this will help Ayton Local History Society Members to find the relevant entry in photocopies of the registers.
