This list of 39 schoolchildren in Tarbert, Co. Kerry in 1809 was originally posted on the Flyleaf Press blog in Aug 2013. The original is in the National Library among the Dr. Michael Quane Papers (Ms. 17,935) which are titled ‘Letters and papers of Commissioners of Education in Ireland relating to Erasmus Smith foundations’. The document is a single page headed ‘A list of the Scholars educating (sic) at the English school founded at Tarbert by the Governors of Erasmus Smith’s Schools. May 1809‘ and is signed by Aust? Martin, who may have been the teacher. An unusual name on the list appears to be ‘Fowlone’ which is reportedly a variant of Folan (see www.johngrenham.com).
