*Richmond’s Rich History
NB: Swale House was the former residence of JAMES TATE, a widely respected classical scholar & headmaster of Richmond School. Between 1812 & 1833, an average of 6 pupils a year proceeded to university with 21 of these becoming fellows, 13 of them at Trinity College, Cambridge. They became so successful & admired whilst at Cambridge that they earned the sobriquet ‘“TATE’S INVINCIBLES”. Former pupils & boarders include Herbert Knowles, Prime Minister Earl Grey’s sons & Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by his pen name, LEWIS CARROLL.
