Henry Montgomery Lawrence proposed the establishment of a military-style boarding school in the Indian subcontinent highlands for the sons and daughters of British soldiers. Eventually four such schools, known as Lawrence Military Asylums were established around the Indian subcontinent, namely;

  1. Sanawar (in present day Himachal Pradesh) in 1847
  2. Mount Abu (in present day Rajasthan) in 1856
  3. Lovedale near Ootacamund (in present day Tamil Nadu) on 6 September 1858
  4. Ghora Gali in 1860.
