THE Foundation of Merchant Taylors' School was one of the  results of that revival of learning which marked the reign  of Elizabeth and showed itself conspicuously in the growth  of the Grammar School system throughout the kingdom. But,  as contributory causes, we must also take into account the public  spirit of the age and the increased wealth which the extension  of commerce brought into the country. Never did the merchants  of London occupy a higher position than in the sixteenth century,  when cadets of noble and ancient families* thought it no  degradation to take an active part in the commercial enterprises  of the time, and, perhaps by virtue of their ancestry, possessed  and displayed some nobler faculties than the mere greed of gold.  

 

Among the most opulent and large-hearted men of this  class was a member of the Merchant Taylors' Company, Sir  Thomas White, who had given ample proof of his zeal in the  cause of education by founding, in 1557, St. John's College, in  the University of Oxford. It is far from being improbable that  either to him or to some other member of the Court may have  occurred the idea of establishing in London a Grammar School  which should bear the same relation to the newly-founded  College which the twin foundations of William of Wykeham  already bore to one another.
