The 1911 list includes information from the 1911 Gore’s Directory and the 1911 census. I’ve been cross-checking the two sources. In some cases, the census and Gore’s information is different; I am assuming that the census is more recent and, therefore, recording that. Where possible I will give both sets of information; the old address or occupation will be in the ‘notes’ column.
Strangely, very few of the teachers from Liverpool College who are listed in the Gore’s Directory seem to be listed in the census. Other institutions have interesting patterns - a lot of the young women training at the Notre Dame College on Mount Pleasant were from County Waterford. There must have been a link institution there - I’ll have to ask. Perhaps someone knows?
At the moment there are just over 3,500 entries - many have partial information. About 71% of those I have listed so far were female. Another huge shift is that, of the 1,100 or so for whom I have full information, about 47% were Liverpool-born. This doesn’t include those born in Bootle, Seaforth, Litherland, Huyton etc. I have excluded these in previous census analysis because they are not in Liverpool as we know it now; although very close, they are actually in South Sefton or other administrative areas. So, the majority of the teaching force is local - if you include those areas, it’s well over 50%. Only about 5% were Irish, 3% Welsh and 3% Scottish. 50 years earlier, 12% were Irish, 5% Scottish and 2% Welsh. Of course, as I get more information together, proportions may change.
There is at least one teacher (Annie RODGERS) who refused to give details of birth because she was a Suffragette.
In 1891 there were about 5,000 teachers, so I have a good way to go! I’ve listed tutors and music teacher / piano teachers separately as they are less likely to be school-based. Governesses are another interesting group. I have included them, because they are often teaching in a school. Some are clearly living in with a family and in time I will list them separately too.
Hope you find this useful.
