Honour Your Ancestors, Former pupils of Meddon Village School Remembered

Could your ancestor have been a pupil at the school?

The school in Meddon became the Village Hall in 1946, after providing education for nearly 70 years. The Meddon Family History Circle (which meets at the hall, 1st Wednesday of every month) has researched details of the 524 children (including evacuees) and staff associated with Meddon School all those years ago. On the rolls, we’ve found a Cornucopia of Cornishes, Handfulls of Heards, Plenty of Prouses, Volumes of Vanstones, a Jumble of Jefferys, Billions of Boundys, a Good-enough number of Goodenoughs, and many others!

We have commemorated every child and staff-member by inscribing their names on the underside of new roofing slates which are going up now as we re-roof the building. If you would like to ‘sponsor’ tiles naming you, your ancestors or friends (we suggest £2 per person, but donations of any size are welcome), check the register of scholars for family members, or obtain further details of the Family History Circle, please contact 07414 552 817, email jacquelinehaughton58@gmail.com or visit Meddon Village Hall website www.meddonvillagehallbtck.co.uk

Meddon Family History Circle welcomes new members and has an exciting program in place for 2015/16, including visits by the acclaimed genealogist and family history trouble-shooter Janet Few, and brilliant author of North Devon historical novels such as ‘Fever’ and ‘The turning of the tide’ Liz Shakespeare.
