Quelch
I am interested in one Henry Quelch who was a schoolmaster at Great Langton in the Edwardian era. He taught my grandfather who used to say, “By, he was rough!) I discovered some years ago that Mr Quelch had kept a diary of his time but before I could view it, the book seller had sold it. Perhaps if I can trace family members, they may be able to put me in touch with the purchaser. I will be fascinated to see if there is an entry, ” Gave young Peacock another sound thrashing today!” It cannot have done granddad too much harm. He lived until 1971, was a respected tenant farmer on the Langton Hall estate, a stalwart of the local Methodist chapel and Rural District Councillor. Whether Mr Quelch was the model for the eponymous teacher of BIlly Bunter is, for the time being, an unsolved mystery.
