On the 8th May 1770, The Rev. Edward Betham, then aged 61, was installed as the Rector of Greenford. He has become Greenford’s best-known rector, as a result of the school he founded and which bears his name. This talk is designed to celebrate the 250th anniversary of his arrival in Greenford, and to look at his establishment of a school for poor children and other charitable activities of the time.
