The article states that fresh evidence in the records of The British and Foreign School Society has recently come to light concerning the teaching career of Tryphena Sparks, poet Thomas Hardy's cousin and youthful sweetheart, who attended Stockwell Training College, in South London, which was owned by the BFSS, as a student in 1870-71. Most of the records of the BFSS are at Borough Road, the Society's original men's college, which had moved to Isleworth in 1890. They contain much evidence both on the admission to training and on the teaching appointments of many hundreds of students at the Society's colleges, including Stockwell College, as well as general correspondence with the elementary schools associated with the Society and papers dealing with the work of its training colleges.
