My Grandmother

A Memory of Braintree

My grandmother Florence Hetty Fenton was a pupil teacher at the school until her marriage in 1904. Her father had to sign for her to become a pupil teacher and the paperwork was given to the museum by my mother and is on display. Hetty is on the large photo on the stairway in the museum together with her sister Elizabeth Fenton.
