Administrative HistoryJacobus Gronovius (1611-1671) Dutch classical scholar of the University of Leiden and Samuel Jones (1681-1719), his former pupil, who established a nonconformist academy in Gloucester. In 1713 the institution was moved to Tewkesbury where it established a reputation for learning and scholarship. Among the students were Baptist Andrew Gifford, Edward Godwin and Thomas Secker, later to become Archbishop of Canterbury. Jones's writings, such as his notes on Thomas Godwin, were much valued by later scholars but none of his work was ever published. Jones died in 1719 and was buried in Tewkesbury Abbey.
