The schoolmaster Thomas Wright Hill opened his school at Hill Top (on the outskits of Birmingham) in 1803, where it remained until 1819. "His simple love of truth and courtesy made him a fair teacher, but he lacked mental perspective, and treated all kinds of knowledge as of equal importance. His private pupils in mathematics in the town included Edwin Guest, afterwards master of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, and Benjamin Hall Kennedy, afterwards professor of Greek at Cambridge."--Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.
