William and Ellen Craft

September 26, 1851

From the London Morning Advertiser, comes news that the Crafts have been received as pupils in the Ockham Schools, which were established by Lady Byron.  William is giving boys instruction in carpentering and cabinet-making, while Ellen is “communicating some of her varied manual acquirements to the girls.   The children are greatly attached to her, and both she and her husband are happy, industrious, and making progress in their pursuits.”
