I'm assuming that Elizabeth Horton was related via Charles' mother's side of the family.
Also, Great Bridge was renamed at Market Place some time between 1891 and 1901.

In England, a charity school called Blue Coat School, was originally a type of elementary school erected and maintained in various parishes, by the voluntary contributions of the inhabitants, for teaching poor children to read, write, and other necessary parts of education. They were usually maintained by religious organizations, which provided clothing and education to students freely or at little charge. In most charity schools, children were likewise put out to trades, services, etc, on the same charitable foundation.

The Birmingham Blue Coat School was founded under the guidance of Reverend William Higgs, Rector of St Philip's Church, now Birmingham Cathedral. The school started out with children aged 9–14 of poor families; 32 boys and 20 girls were clothed, fed and educated.
