  • Notes 
    • The first master was Brooke (sometimes written as Brookes), the second was Joseph Brooksbank, whose shiftlessness in money matters so distressed his meticulous cousin, Stamp. Thereafter, until the division of the trust early in the eighteen-sixties, minister and schoolmaster were one, with varying success. ~his story is detailed in Mr. Green's paper up to the closure of the school.

      From The History and Antiquities of Dissenting Churches
      COACH-MAKERS-.HALL. Extinct.
      JOSEPH BROOKSBANK. - Dr. Gibbons was succeeded, after a short time, by the Rev. Joseph Brooksbank, who is a native of Yorkshire, and was educated at Homerton academy. Since the union of his congregation with that under the care of Mr. Neely, he preaches at Haberdashers'-Hall only on one part of the day ; but is engaged on the Lord's-day evening at Broad-street, and at other lectures.

      PROTESTANT DISSENTERS.
      Joseph Brooksbank, of Hackney, in the county of Middlesex, Esq. by indenture, dated June 5th, 1756, conveyed to the Rev. Joseph Brooksbank and others, a messuage or tenement, and cottage, called Cinder hills, in South Owram, and also eight closes of land to the same belonging, known by the names of the Upper Ing, the Lower Ing, the Long field, two Coal pit brows, the Little Steass Mires, the Sough Mires, and the Small Long close, in trust that they, and the survivors and survivor of them, should yearly out of the rents and profits of the said messuage, cottage and lands, (after the necessary charges of repairing and supporting the same, and of the execution of the trusts thereby created) in the first place, pay, or cause to be paid, by two equal half-yearly payments, the clear yearly sum of ten pounds, without deduction, to the minister for the time being, of the congregation of protestant dissenters meeting or assembling for the worship of God, in the meetinghouse made use of for that purpose at Elland, so long as there should be such a minister, and the exercise of divine worship by protestants dissenting from the church of England should be permitted therein by the laws of this realm, and no longer. And on this further trust that the said trustees, for the time being, should yearly out of the said rents expend the sum of forty shillings, in the purchase of such books of piety and devotion as they should think fit, to be by them given and distributed amongst the forty poor children taught at the free school in Elland, which was formerly founded and endowed by Joseph Brooksbank, deceased, grandfather of the above named Joseph Brooksbank, owner of Cinder-hills aforesaid. And upon trust to pay the remainder of the said clear rents and profits of the said premises yearly unto the Schoolmaster, for the time being, of the said school, as an addition to his allowance, or salary, for teaching and instructing the said children in manner directed by the said Joseph Brooksbank, founder of the said school, and to and for no other use whatsoever. When the trustees were by death, reduced to two, or under, the survivor or survivors were to convey to as many as were necessary to make the number seven. There is a proviso in the deed, that the premises should revert to the right heirs of Brooksbank, in the event of divine worship by protestant dissenters not being permitted in the chapel.

      "Founded as a dissenting academy in 1730 by the Congregational Fund Board and the King's Head Society, Homerton College took its name from Homerton in East London in 1823. By 1850 its theological training became the work of London University <http://studymore.org.uk/sshtim.htm> and the Congregational Board of Education then combined its training colleges for men and women teachers at Homerton College, which in 1894 moved to the site of Cavendish College in Cambridge. It is an independent specialist college within the University of Cambridge"
