Description
  • Partis College was founded in 1824 by Ann Partis as a charity 'for thirty reduced gentlewomen in the decline of life'. The inmates all had to have a certain income (originally between £20-30 per annum) and be over the age of 50. The records consist of applications and related papers, of successful and unsuccessful candidates; the papers of the trustees of the College and accounts and related materials. Some papers of other charities to which the College had a connection are included, particularly St Anne's Society and the London Orphan School. See also Acc 0354.
