ORIGIN AND ENDOWMENT. The origin of this school can be traced no higher than the time of the Incumbency of the Eeverend Eobert Meeke, who was appointed to the curacy of Slaithwaite Chapel, in the parish of Huddersfield, in the year 1685; in whose diary it is first mentioned. This laborious and benevolent man " began to catechize the children," probably in the chapel, in June, 1689. He speaks of the school in January, 1692, as adjoining the chapel, and his putting a lock on a door betwixt the chapel and school; and that he met with a person who desired to be schoolmaster, "gave him no answer, but left him to the town men." It was therefore a Parochial School which Mr. Meeke superintended, and in the management of which he consulted the sagest of his neighbours and parishioners. We know nothing more until the year 1721, when Mr. Meeke endowed the school with a freehold estate at Sowood, in Stainland, parish of Halifax; which he bought at the same time with the adjoining lands, which were conveyed to the Trustees of Queen Anne's Bounty, for the benefit of the Curate Of. Slaithwaite for the time being; and which still form the principal endowment of the living. The original Trust Deed of the School dated June 21st, 1721, is not now to be found, but an old abstractexists, and the deed was duly
