A view at Charterhouse School near Godalming, Surrey. In 1611 the founder Thomas Sutton, one of the wealthiest men in Jacobean England, made provision for the establishment of a hospital for pensioners and a school for boys. Buildings near Smithfield in London which had once housed a Carthusian monastery, established in the fourteenth century, were purchased, and Sutton was buried in the chapel. The School arrived in Godalming in June 1872. Remarque of bust of the founder and his motto lower right. By Edward J. Burrow, known for his topographical etchings and series of views of public schools.
