Person NameDurris Educational Trust; 1888-
ActivityUnder the provisions of the Amended Scheme of the Educational Endowments Commission in 1888 the trustees of Hogg's Mortification and Strachan's Bequest met in Durris to devise a plan for directing the income from the two trusts for the benefit of local education. Strachan's Bequest, which had amounted to £100 in 1847 when Strachan had died, had been overseen by the Kirk Session, but was at that point transferred to the School Board. It appears to have provided support for three scholars, while Hogg's Mortification supported ten. From 1889, however, the two funds were combined and the total divided equally between two public schools, Crossroads Public School and Woodlands Public School, for the support of poor pupils of a certain standard. Twelve pupils in each school (though the number varied) were to be provided with books and stationery by the joint fund.
