Harrow in historic gazetteers

Gazetteer of the British Isles (Edinburgh: Bartholomew, 1887). John Bartholomew

Harrow (or Harrow on the Hill), town and par. with ry. sta., Middlesex, 10 miles NW. of London - par., 10,027 ac., pop. 10,277; town, pop. 5558; P.O., T.O., 1 Bank, 1 newspaper. The celebrity of Harrow is due to its school, which was founded by John Lyon in 1571. The institution is conducted on principles similar to those which regulate Eton College, and, like the latter, Harrow has the honour of being the school at which some very distinguished men have been educated. Members of the governing body are chosen by the Lord Chancellor, the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, and London, the Royal Society, and the assistant masters of the school. Up to 1837 the education given was exclusively classical; it now embraces every chief department of modern culture.
