Dobbin’s

Thomas Ringland Dobbin (? - ?), was a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants.  He joined the school office staff in 898, but became the Bursar and Commercial Master in 1911. He retired 20 years later. Known as “Toby”, little is known about him, although the day after the murder by the IRA of Field Marshall Sir Henry Wilson in 1922, he wrote from his home in the Earlswood Road to Sir James Craig: “Ulster is poorer, the British nation is poorer: and there is no language to express the feelings of the people of this Imperial province… we are dumb”. Dobin’s was instituted in 1921 as a junior Day Boy House. He retired in 1931.
