Welsh School

This charity school, of the most honourable and loyal Society of Ancient Britons, was established in 1714, for instructing, clothing, maintaining, and apprenticing poor children of Welsh parents, born in and near London. They have now an excellent school, well supported, in Gray's Inn lane road; it will hold upwards of one hundred children: the number is at present 127, and the expense of maintaining them is upwards of 3,000l., a sum that is regularly subscribed. The Prince Regent is the patron.
