Rugby School was founded in 1567 with money left in the will of Lawrence Sherriffe, grocer to Queen Elizabeth the First. He left the money in his will to found a boys school for his local town. The school became fee paying to help maintain itself, and the Lawrence Sheriff School was later founded in 1878 to continue his original intent.
