St Marks Headmaster 1893 - 1903

According to the literature I found on Mr Jabez Darricotte he was a kind and well educated man and respected by all who knew him.

After leaving St Marks in 1903 he became Supervisor of all the primary schools under Bolton Education Authority.

Jabez was also a prominent trade union activist, serving as an Executive Committee member and Vice President of NALGO (National Association of Local Government Officers)

Jabez became editor of the Bolton Guild Journal a he proposed a Mutual Insurance Fund which would pay a sum to widows and their families of local government officers who died in service. This idea was adopted nationally leading to the creation of The Benevolent and Orphan Fund.

One of his sons 'Gilbert Haley Darricote' was killed in action on the 6 September 1918 age 30.
