Darnel calls 11.2.1805 (& Annis) / 7.8.1809 call on Darnel with M(ary) J(ane)
James Darnell was a schoolmaster of White Lion St, Clerkenwell five of whose children with his wife Sarah were baptised on the same day in 1814 at Clerkenwell St John, and three more in 1815, 1816 and 1819. According to an advert in the Morning Post of 21.11.1821 his school was called Prospect House Academy and he followed the educational system of a Mr Perry whose address was 3 Adam St Adelphi and whose Academy was in Manchester. Darnell may have been a relation of George Darnell DNB 1799-1857 who kept a school in Islington by 1836 (Sun Fire). This is only a possible identification.
