ERIC GORDON SCRUTON

former part-owner of the Leeds Rd property

Created 27 August,2005

After Norwood had been in operation for about eight years, the school became a limited company, "Norwood College (Harrogate) Ltd". The deed conveying the property from the former owners, Edward Numa Butterworth, John Hirst and Eric Gordon Scruton, to "Norwood College (Harrogate) Limited" on 11 November,1944, shows the registered premises as 5 Leeds Road.

The Civil Registration Index 40 shows Eric Gordon Scruton, as born in Leeds in the March Quarter,1902. Charlie Cass was born in 1898.

With Hirst and Butterworth, Scruton had become the owner of what appears to have been nos.3 and 5 Leeds Road in July,1940. On the 1940 conveyance deed Butterworth is shown as "of Norwood College" and as Captain (Ret'd) Butterworth.
