Did you know ...

With the exception of Gownboys, originally the scholars' house, all boarding houses at Charterhouse are prefixed with part of their founding master's name and suffixed with "-ites", thus also naming their residents collectively.  For example, Pageites was founded by T E Page.  It gets confusing with Duckites, which is named after Dr Frederick Girdlestone, but he was affectionately called "the Duck" because of his waddle!
