Ellis, Richard., 1869-1928

Richard Ellis was born at Aberystwyth on December 27th 1865. He received his early education in the town, and attended its university during the years 1889-1894, studying history and English. In 1893, he won an open exhibition at Jesus College, Oxford, but remained at Aberystwyth, teaching at David Samuel's private grammar school. He took up the exhibition in 1898, and graduated in modern history in 1901.

Ellis remained at Oxford after graduation. He followed courses in palaeography, and began compiling notes on the Lhuyd collections held at the Bodleian Library. He formed the Edward Lhuyd Society, which met 1903-1906, and began a campaign to erect a memorial to Lhuyd at Jesus College.
