Does any kind soul know anything about this school. I know my G.g.g granfather was a professor of language here in 1855 but nothing else .I beleieve he came from ALsace Lorraine , but would love to know who/why/what languages he taught and anything at all about the school. His name was John Strouwelle and I have traced his marriage but would like a bit more general info on his occupation here. Many thanks, oops forgot to mention,JS worked in Cumbria lived in london any inspiration??
