  1. Alexander Watt taught at Hart’s school on the corner on the corner of the East Half of lot 25, Con. 3 about 1 mile from his home in Lammermoor for half a day and then walked about 3 miles across country to teach at the Poland School the other half of the day. This would have taken place prior to 1830 as the School Act of 1827 required teachers to have certain qualifications. He would stay overnight at a student’s home, teach at Poland in the morning and then walk back to Hart’s School in the afternoon.
