Signature of Robert Pursglove in black into on paper, from 1569.Letters

We are lucky to have an archive of several hundred letters from Guisborough Hospital and Guisborough Grammar School. Our earliest letter was written in the sixteenth century and signed by Robert Pursglove himself (right), and our general collection of letters goes back to 1710.

Letters of Guisborough Hospital

The east end of a stone-built Victorian chapel of ease with three pointed lancet windows, in a plot of land without headstones and with trees.Correspondence of Guisborough Hospital

Our collection of letters from Guisborough Hospital dates from between 1710 and 1870. Click the links to access the letters for a particular range of dates.

These letters represent incoming correspondence only. Some organisations kept letter books, in which they recorded copies of the letters they sent. The Wardens of Guisborough Hospital do not appear to have done this.

This collection has a very few copies of outgoing correspondence, such as ZJB 7-2-4, which concerns the end of Robert Frankland's time at the school due to his mental ill health (Frankland was confined to a lunatic asylum near York). These copies are in the minority, however, and it seems that most everyday correspondence was not considered important enough to copy.

 

Letters of Sir Joseph Pease, 1886-1900

The Letters of Sir Joseph Pease, 1886-1900

Sir Joseph Pease was the guiding force beind the reconstitution of Guisborough Hospital into Guisborough Grammar School in the 1880s. These letters date from 1886 to 1900, and form an interesting record of the very early years of Guisborough Grammar School.

As with the letters of Guisborough Hospital, we only have one side of the conversation. If a letter book containing copies of outgoing correspondence was kept, it does not appear to have survived.
