The election of Thomas Bryan in June 1691 confirmed Harrow School's association with Eton College and King's College which lasted a hundred years. A scholar of Eton, Bryan set the tone for the next century, in his own way as influential a Head as William Hide, Thomas Thackeray, or C. J. Vaughan. Much of the character of the 18th-century school depended on the deliberate policy of the governors to develop Harrow on Etonian lines. By the end of Bryan's reign, even elements of Eton vernacular had migrated. The year 1713 saw the election as Harrow governor of James Brydges, successively earl of Carnarvon and duke of Chandos, Paymaster General of the Forces during the War of Spanish Succession. Head Master James Cox is considered the black sheep of Harrow's past.
