If not, then I would be careful stating it as some sort of fact that there was no element of continuity in Britain before 1875.
I will bite my tongue for now and wait until someone actually has done some sort of research that goes beyond the Canadian/North American border.
Donald Guay is an excellent historian that unfortunately your research failed to turn up. He authored three well researched books on physical education 1836 into the 1960s in the Québec provincial school system.
If you have done the research provide the actual links and documentation.
