Where did William web Ellis invent rugby?

1823 at Rugby School Warwickshire, England. At that time football was played in all schools (soccer). The rules allowed handling of the ball as long as the player carrying the ball retreated BACKWARDS toward his own team where he could make a pass. In this case Webb Ellis picked up the ball and ran TOWARD the opposing goals. This was the very first record of what we know today as rugby. Later more students also picked up the ball and ran forward but used the back pass as we know today to move the ball to their team players.
