MSA SC 5300


Grew, Theophilus, (MSA SC5300-164), accepted the post of master of the Kent Co. Free School in 1740. In Nov 1740 the Visitors of the Kent County, MD, Free School advertised for an usher at the school. The usher had to be single, a member of the Church of England, and qualified to teach grammar. Applicants were to apply to the gentlemen visitors in Chestertown or to Theophilus Grew in Philadelphia (Penna. Gaz. 6 Nov 1740). In May 1742 Grew advertised he was seeking a single man to teach Latin at the Kent County Free School (Penna. Gaz. 20 May 1742).
