In 1823 William Webb Ellis, a pupil at Rugby School, Rugby, England allegedly picked up the ball and invented Rugby. However, there is no evidence to support this myth - even the 1895 Inquiry, which immortalised Ellis found no proof. Running with the ball became common in 1830s at Rugby School and Rugby School football became popular throughout the UK in the 1850s and 1860s.
