Excerpt from Dame Christian Colet: Her Life and Family Wherever English History is read the name of John Colet is known, and the School which he founded has faithfully performed its pious task of keeping green his memory. The Lives written by Dr Knight and by Dr Lupton tell us much of the man and of his work. They tell us, however, little of his family; and of his father's family it seems that but little can be certainly known. The family of his mother have left records of some interest in several generations, and as Dame Christian Colet was herself a woman of exceptional and attractive character, it has been found worth while to make some study of her ancestors and of her own per sonality. This work has been very appropriately performed by the first Head of the Girls' School which was opened, on John Colet's Foundation, nearly four hundred years after his death.
