Netherton Female Educational Institute
The Netherton Female Educational Institute was formed in January 1854 with an initial membership of 46 local women, reportedly aged between 15 and 25.
The Institute held its first annual soiree on 17 April 1854, by which time membership had increased to 70 members.
The Rev. George Hough appears to have been instrumental in setting up the Institute and presided over the early meetings.
