Ephraim Sanderson & Aberford School

One of my ancestors, Ephraim Sanderson, opened a private school in Aberford in 1787.

He was obviously well educated and well in with Sir John Goodricke of Bramham. He taught mathematics, navigation, land surveying and book-keeping etc and lived at St Johns. He is returned to have had 22 children, although I have only found 14! He was buried in Aberford in 1822, although I could not see a grave when I looked in the churchyard.

I would be pleased to share what I know about him or the school if anyone is interested. I am also seeking further information on him and the school itself.
