Teachers Registrations (1870-1948) now on British Origins
June 20, 2006
The latest dataset to be added to British Origins (www.britishorigins.com) is the Teachers’ Registrations, a list of over 100,000 people who taught in England and Wales between 1870 and 1948 - more than half of these are women.
From 1914, many teachers in England and Wales (and elsewhere) registered with the Teachers Registration Council. The original registration records for the period up to 1948 (after which registration was abandoned) were deposited with the Society of Genealogists (www.sog.org.uk) The Origins Network has now scanned and indexed these records to make them publicly available for the first time, on British Origins.
Although registration only started in 1914, since people who were already teaching registered, the records cover teachers who started their careers from the 1870s on.
The records provide the following information:
- teacher’s name (and for married women teachers often their maiden name as well)
- Date of Registration
- Register Number
- (Professional) Address
- Training in Teaching
