This chapter focuses on the grammar school founded by Christopher Swallow, vicar of Messing, Essex, at Earls Colne and Coggishall, in 1519–20. Before his death on 22 August 1539 Swallow secured an agreement that each successive Earl of Oxford would serve as guardian. Oxford appointed William Adams schoolmaster, who was not only incompetent but connived with Simon Ive, another a ‘dishonest servant’ of Oxford's to milk the school lands for their joint personal benefit.
