A List of the Students educated under the Rev . Richard Franks xi ^ m ^ A ;^ 0 ^ 0 ^ ^ co mti in , the Academy which he first ¦ ¦ rMrectml' a&ft&ttimel % m * -Vork- * : shire . Mr . Frankland , who was born at Rathmcil , A . D . 1630 , had his education at Christ ' s College ,
Cambridge , and was first settled at Bishop Auckland , in the county of Durham . When Oliver Cromwell erected a college in that city , he fixed on Mr . Frankland to be a tutor in it , for which office he was well qualified by his eminent learning ; and abilities . But that college being demolished , at the Restoration * he missed the
situation designed for him and soon afterwards was ejected , with a number of his brethren , from his living in the church , on account of his non-conformity . Upon this he retired ta his native place , where he had an estate , and there
he was persuaded by many of his friends to set up a private academy , in which he met with so much encouragement ., that in the course of a few years he educated near 300 pupils . Notwithstanding his eminence both for clfaracter and literature , he met with much disturbance in those
troublesome times , so that he was obliged frequently to change his situation . In the year 1674 ? he removed his academy to Natland , near Kendal . After two or three other removals by the Five-Mile Act , he fixed at AttercliflTe , near Sheffield , from whence he returned to
Rathmell , where he died in the year 1 (> 98 , aged 68 . The academy was afterwards removed back to Attercliffe , where Mr . Jollie was the tutor . In the following list of pupils the time of their com-
mencement is specified , and a number is prefixed to each name , to render the reference t ! i # iKbre easy , m any future anecdotes ; many of ' -which if it hopM" < dur readers will communicate , to supply the great deficiency of bibgraphical informa tion .
