Notes: Christ's Hospital School was founded by Edward VI for children from poor families, being established at Newgate in London until moving to Horsham in Sussex in 1897. It still has close links with the Corporation of the City of London and livery companies, who actively enable pupils to attend the school. The first examples of this medal were struck in 1797, and then it was struck throughout much of the nineteenth century. It is rare to find an example with its original case.
