Papers of George Heath, Head Master 1792 - 1801
George Heathe (1745-1822) was a King's Scholar 1757 - 1763. He proceeded to King's College, Cambridge, of which he was a fellow 1767 - 1776. He initially returned to Eton as a private tutor but in 1775 was appointed an assistant master. He was elected Head Master in 1791, and received a Lambeth DD. In 1802 he became a Fellow of Eton. From 1789 - 1800 he was Rector of Monk's Risborough, Buckinghamshire, from 1800 - 1805 of Brasted, Kent, and from 1805 of the Eton livings of Piddlehinton and Sturminster Marshall, both in Dorset. He was also a Canon of St George's Chapel, Windsor from 1800 until his death.
These papers are verses of which /1 at least probably dates from Heath's time as a boy at the school. No papers relating to his administration survive.
