Whilst Thomas Turner kept school for a year from April 1775 and negotiated the "hire of Mr. Virgoe's house to teach school in" - now The King's Head - the official Logs Books weren't started until the opening of a newly built school in 1865. At that time The Log Books document the scathing comments made by the East Hoathly headmasters about the local Dame Schools in the area.
