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.[1]

The Institute held its first annual soiree on 17 April 1854, by which time membership had increased to 70 members.[2][3]

The Rev. George Hough appears to have been instrumental in setting up the Institute and presided over the early meetings.
