Jocelin or Jocelyn de Brakelond (d. 1211) was an English monk, and author of a chronicle narrating the fortunes of the monastery of Bury St Edmunds between 1173 and 1202. He is only known to us through his own work. He was a native of Bury St Edmunds; he served his novitiate under Samson of Tottington, who was at that time master of the novices, but afterwards sub-sacrist, and, from 1182, abbot of the house. Jocelin took the habit of religion in 1173, during the time of Abbot Hugo ( 1157- 1180), through whose improvidence and laxity the abbey had become impoverished and the inmates dead to all respect for discipline. The fortunes of the abbey changed for the better with the election of Samson as Hugos successor. Jocelyn, who became abbots chaplain within four months of the election, describes the administration of Samson at considerable length. He tells us that he was with Samson night and day for six years; the picture which he gives of his master, although colored by enthusiastic admiration, is singularly frank and intimate. It is all the more convincing since Jocelyn is no stylist. His Latin is familiar and easy, but the reverse of classical. He thinks and writes as one whose interests are wrapped up in his house; and the unique interest of his work lies in the minuteness with which it describes the policy of a monastic administrator who was in his own day considered as a model. ...more on Wikipedia about "Jocelin de Brakelond"

Reverend Percy Warrington, an evangelical parson who created an education empire in the 1920s by purchasing a group of 10 schools in Britain and a girls school in Kenya. The Martyrs' Memorial and Church of England Trust became its trustees. The schools ran into severe financial difficulties during the years of depression in the early 1930s and were rescued by the intervention of the Legal and General Assurance Society. As a result, in 1934, the influence of the Martyrs' Trust was restricted to nominate only one sixth of the Governors of School. The Legal and General mortgages were finally repaid in 1980. The new Allied Schools Council was then set up. He was instrumental in founding St Peter's College, Oxford. ...more on Wikipedia about "Percy Warrington"
