Keighley Grammar School

My grandfather attended the first Keighley Grammar School in about 1845-1851. By 1851 he was 11 years of age and working in a mill as a weaver. If anyone has any information about this school, I would like to hear about it.

Years at KBGS e.g. 1958-1964 (optional) 1846-1851

Current location (optional) Canada

There seems to be a fair bit of early history on this site. Try http://www.kbgs.com/khist.htm

Re: Keighley Grammar School

Are you sure you got the dates right?
It means your grandfather was born in 1840, which is 165 years ago?

(sorry if this seems a bit rude, but I was just wondering about the enormous gap in years)
