Victoria College is located in St. Helier, Jersey, Channel
Islands, founded in 1852, providing secondary education to boys only.
It was founded as a public school for islanders and boarders,
although the boarding school is now closed.
A register was published by the school in 1930 with information on
the pupils there, and often extra information, such as father,
address, and subsequent career.

INDEX TO VICTORIA COLLEGE REGISTER: 1852-1929
This shows the name and index number of pupils at the school,
together with the year of entrance.
A range of years is given for year of birth, based on possible age
at admission. D.J. Cottrill in his excellent "Victoria College" gives
the range of ages for admission in the early years of the school as
ranging from 7 years to 11 years, which is clearly evident where
brothers began at the same term. As time went on, this shifted
towards present policy, which is admission at 11 years. However, some
pupils joined the College late. An example of variance in age ranges,
and dates of birth, is the Mecham family.
(This is under construction. As letters become available, they
will be added.)
