235 Kibble History - Summary of General Information

Establishment of Kibble
Opened in 1859 as Miss Kibble's Reformatory School, following a bequest from Miss Elizabeth Kibble (died 1841) to 'found and endow, in Paisley, an Institution for the purpose of reclaiming youthful offenders against the law'.

In her will signed 7 August 1840 and registered at Edinburgh on 28 January 1841 she divides her wealth into two halves - one for legacies to her relatives and certain good causes, and the other for the establishment of the Kibble Reformatory. She comments on that and on her gifts to the various good causes that it was "...also to fulfil the intentions of the late Janet Kibble, my sister".

Elizabeth Kibble's family was one of the prosperous and important families in Paisley at the time, inheriting land from both grandparents and acquiring other properties. They intermarried with other entrepreneurial families and her brother was one of the principal linen manufacturers in the town. He married a granddaughter of Humphrey Fulton of Maxwelltown who had introduced silk weaving into Paisley. Her mother's family was socially concerned, establishing the Thread Street School funded by the Corse legacy and, with her sister who had pre-deceased her, she had obviously thought about ways of improving life for the poor in Paisley either through existing institutions or through the establishing of a new one - Kibble Reformatory. She carefully shared her wealth among her brothers, brothers-in-law and her late sister's family (with a notable and unexplained exception).

Her parents, grandparents, brothers and brothers-in-law all played important roles in the life of Paisley either as landowners, manufacturers, burgesses or as directors of charitable organisations.

General Background (up to 1900)
Boys were sent to Kibble for a range of reasons, although the majority were sent for committing offences. During the school's first forty years boys sent here were generally aged between 10 and 15, although the earliest records list a case of an eight-year-old being committed to Kibble.

Most offences committed by boys sent to Kibble during this period were thefts; however, in many cases these involved theft of food, clothing, blankets and, most commonly, theft of shoes. The latter offence is tinged with irony since shoemaking was the most common trade taught to boys while they were in the school and many boys were apprenticed to local shoemakers on their release. Some more serious offences are recorded but these were in the minority. Boys are regularly listed as being orphans, abandoned by parents, or being the children of drunkards. Therefore, in the absence of a State welfare system and given the nature of the thefts, it appears that at least some of these boys stole from necessity rather than greed or malice. There are also some cases of boys being referred to Kibble for ?care and protection? and not because of any wrongdoing on their part.

It was standard practice for boys to be sentenced to adult male prison (usually for fourteen days, occasionally for twenty-one days) before being moved to Kibble. This was in order to give them a short, sharp shock and hopefully deter them from following a life of crime. Reformatory sentences were usually for between three and five years. The practice of passing down preliminary prison sentences prior to admission to reformatory was abolished in Scotland in 1893, following the Day Industrial Schools (Scotland) Act, which also severed links between the adult prison system and reformatories.

While in the school, boys were given industrial training; this was mainly of a practical nature but did include lectures from external personnel on subjects such as dairying, the silk worm and tannery processes. In addition to shoemaking, tailoring and farming were the main skills taught. Although the emphasis was on equipping the boys for employment on their discharge, they were also taught to read, write and do arithmetic; many of them are recorded as unable to read or write on admission to the school, while some could read but not write.

Social evenings were also held; these included entertainments put on for parents and invited guests/dignitaries by the boys, where the boys would perform musical recitals, for example. Boys were also treated to magic lantern shows as a form of entertainment.

Sleeping accommodation was in large dormitories and the daily routine, taken from an 1881 Trustees' Report, was as shown below:

Daily Timetable (1881)

5.30 - 6am Rise; wash; dress

6 - 9am School; worship

9 - 10am Breakfast; play

10am - 1pm Work

1 - 2 pm Dinner; play

2 - 6pm Work

6 - 7pm Wash; supper; play

7 - 8.30pm School; worship

8.30 - 9pm Prepare for bed

9pm Bed

This illustrates the mixture of work, education, social interaction and religious worship that constituted Kibble's ethos and routine.

245 Letter from Prowses History of Newfoundland

To Mr. Samuel Merrett. Sept. 21, 1702 from Pool. This serves to advice you that yesterday Mr. Thos. Wadham in the Hopewell of this place arrived here in three weeks from Trinity Harbour; he brings the bad news that about a week before he left 40 or 50 armed Frenchman came over by land from Placentia to Sillicove (TC Note- now Winterton), surprised the inhabitants killing 3 or 4 and took Mr. John Masters out of his bed rifled his house, and carried him and his goods aboard a Jersey ship laden with fish and sailed northward with the ship and 1,000 qtls. of fish but took no fish from the rocks; they much doubt their being gone to Bonavista where is only Captain Weston. A French man of war hath been off St. John's all the summer and hath taken seven ships in sight of that harbour. The Convoys were not arrived when he came away.

This letter was not signed nor do I know the writer.
