Elizabeth Christies book again:
The Episcopal school was founded in 1846. It was
erected, along with a house, through the exertions
of the rev T C Erskine. In 1862 it was offering
under the headship of David MacDonald, education
in the classics and maths. The school finally
closed in december 1939, but the building in the
High street is still in use as the Sea Cadet
The sea cadets are still there, and I presume it
is the same building on the corner of High Street
and King Street. Check your 1902 map, and you will
see 2 schools marked in that area. One beside the
County Buildings, and another about one inch to
the right. The second must be the Episc school.
I have no information about the school records.

The recent postings about Tewal and the Tewal
School, brought to mind a question I have been
intending to ask the group.
In the early 1900s there was a St.James Episcopal
School, known locally in Stonehaven as the "Chapel
School". Where was it located and is it still
there? Are there records that might be available
to see and where would they be found? Does anyone
by any chance have photos of the school that they
might be willing to share? It would be interesting
to see the school as it was then, and if it still
exists, as it is today.
