(4) DK, 'Soon thereafter [death of Walter 13 Dec 1886] the eight surviving boys 
were dispatched to Shebbear College, a long-established boarding school in north 
Devon.  Charles, at the age of eleven, and his younger brothers Emil, Percy and 
Sidney (who was just eight years old) left home in 1888.  Ernest, Albert, 
Frederick and William soon completed the Russ contingent at Shebbear, a school 
founded by a Low Church group and later affiliated with the Methodist Church.  
The brothers often remained at school even during the holidays. 
Boarding school was primarily a privilege of the rich, but conditions at 
Shebbear did not betray the fact.  The boys took to eating their peach stones to 
stave off hunger, a habit that little Sidney would maintain for the rest of his 
life.  When at home, the brothers proved that they had absorbed their Latin 
lessons, calling their mother 'Mater'.  But they were not coddled at home 
either.  'Pater' would not tolerate idleness or airs in his boys, who during 
holidays were put to work learning the furrier trade', 12.
