Drayton Hall

Webinar - 18th & 19th Century Education at Drayton Hall


Charles Drayton's (1743-1820) writings provide insight into the significance of education at Drayton Hall and highlight the disparate opportunities children had based on race, social status, and gender. Drayton sons received formal schooling and daughters were groomed to become marriageable ladies of high society, while children in the enslaved community practiced trades and served apprenticeships to learn jobs which were often highly specialized. In this webinar, Curator Amber Satterthwaite will discuss the very different educational experiences of gentry and enslaved boys and girls at Drayton Hall in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
