ATING from the reign of James I. Wadham College occupies an
interesting position in the history of the University, as having been
the last College founded until quite recent times, for both Pembroke
and Worcester were but expansions of older foundations, indeed it
may be said to share with Jesus College the honour of belonging to
the days of Elizabeth, as its founder and foundress were well advanced
in years at the time when they carried out their long meditated plans,
and both in the spirit which animates its statutes and in the architecture
of its fabric, Wadham College belongs rather to the sixteenth than to
the seventeenth century.

The founder of the College, Nicholas Wadham, of Merifeild, in the
county of Somerset, was the last male representative of one of the
oldest and wealthiest of the untitled families of the West of England.
He married Dorothy, daughter of Sir William Petre, the well-known
benefactor of Exeter College, but having no children he resolved to
devote his great wealth to some pious use. All his patrimonial estates
went to his three sisters who had married into some of the chief
families of the West of England ; but the savings of his long life (he
was nearly 80 when he died in 1609) were devoted to the College
which bears his name. The work was actually carried out by his wife ; but he had left full instructions as to his
wishes, some of which were unusual. He desired that the Warden, as well as the Fellows, should be unmarried ;
and also that each of them should be "left free to profess what he listed, as it should please God to direct him; "
he did not wish them to "live thro' all their time like idle drones, but put themselves into the world, whereby
others may grow up under them." He also arranged that the College should be called after his own name, and
that the Bishop of Bath and Wells should be perpetual Visitor.

. . . The foundation stone was laid with great ceremony on July 31st, 1610, and two years later the
foundress, having sometime previously obtained a Charter from James I., put forth her statutes (August 16th
1612). There were to be fifteen Fellows and fifteen scholars, the former being elected from among the latter ; of
these three scholars were to be from Somerset, and three from Essex, while three Fellowships and three scholar-
ships were restricted to " Founder's kin." These were originally intended for the children and descendants of the
sisters above-mentioned, but in course of time it became frequent to trace kinship with the founder through
collateral branches of the Wadham family.

. . . Owing to the extent of the original design and the excellence of the building material employed,
Wadham has the unique honour among the Colleges of Oxford of having remained practically unaltered since it
left its foundress' hands. Of the various parts of the building the hall and the chapel are the most remarkable ;
the latter, in the shape of its ante-chapel, is a combination of the short nave found at New College and of
transepts such as are found at Merton ; while, in the tracery of the windows of its choir, it furnishes a continual
puzzle to architectural theorists ; for though undoubtedly every stone of it was built at the beginning of the
seventeenth century, and though the woodwork is pure Jacobean, the windows, both in their tracery and in their
mouldings, belong to a period one hundred and fifty years earlier. Tradition ascribes the work to an architect
named Holt, who was certainly employed in Oxford at the time in building the New Schools, and it is difficult not
to believe that the quad at Wadham and the Fellows' quad at Merton were designed by the same man ; the
resemblance between them seems too close to be accidental ; but Mr. T. G. Jackson, A.R.A. , the greatest living
authority on Jacobean architecture, and himself a fellow of Wadham, believes that the College buildings cannot be
attributed to any one man, but are rather the work of the "craftsman," and not of the professional architect. To
his forthcoming book on Wadham, all interested in the development of Jacobean architecture must be referred.
The cost of the whole building was ^11,360.

[ 521-522 ]




The first thirty years of the history of the College
are mainly famous for the presence there of Admiral
Blake, who graduated in Feb., 1617-18 ; his portrait
still adorns the College Hall.

The Civil War affected Wadham as it did the rest
of the University. Its plate disappeared ....
only the Communion Plate ( " donum funda-
tricis ") being spared ; its students were largely dis-
placed to make room for the King's supporters,
among whom the Attorney General, Sir Edward
Herbert, seems to have made Wadham a kind of
family residence. After the final defeat of the King,
the Warden, Pytt, and the great majority of the
Foundation were deprived by the Parliamentary
Commissioners. But it may be fairly said that the
changes made did far more good than harm to
the College. The man appointed to the vacant
Wardenship, was the famous John Wilkins, divine,
philosopher, and mathematician, who enjoyed the
almost unique honour of being promoted by the
Parliament, by Richard Cromwell, and by Charles
II., and to whom the College owes the honour of
being the cradle of the Royal Society. Warden
Wilkins had, for two hundred years, the distinction
of being the only married Warden of Wadham. His
wife was a sister of the Lord Protector, with whom
he had great influence, which he used for the benefit
of the University as a whole, and of individual
Royalists. Among the most famous of his pupils were
Sir Christopher Wren, who, on his election to be
Fellow of All Souls', presented the College with the
clock which it still uses ; and Bishop Sprat, the
historian of the Royal Society, who has had the mis-
fortune to have his portrait sketched by Macaulay in
his account of James II. 's reign.

Wilkins and three of his four successors all became
Bishops ; of these the most famous was Ironside,
who, as Vice-Chancellor in 1688, ventured to oppose
the king in his arbitrary proceedings against Mag-
dalen. The fall of James saved Ironside, who was
made Bishop of Bristol (and afterwards of Hereford)
by William III., and was succeeded by Warden
Dunster, the object of Thomas Hearne's hatred and
contempt. He accuses him of being " one of the
violentest Whigs and most rascally Low Churchmen "
of the time, and of various other defects, physical and
moral, which may perhaps be conjectured to be in
Hearne's mind convertible terms with the above.

Wadham as a whole during this period was strongly
Whig and Low Church ; not improbably this was
due to its close connection with the West country,
where the suppression of Monmouth's rebellion had
taught men to hate the Stuarts ; but whatever the
reason, the fact is undoubted. Probably there is no
other College hall in England which boasts, of
portraits both of the "glorious deliverer" and of
George I.

The history of Oxford during the 18th century is
neither glorious nor eventful ; and Wadham was no
exception to the rule, but it was one of the first
Colleges to feel the revival which began with the last
quarter of the century.

In Warden Wills, who was appointed in 1783,
the College found its most liberal benefactor since the
death of the foundress. It was in his time that the
present beautiful garden was laid out on the site of
the old formal walks with a mound in the centre,
which appear in the prints of the last century. It
has been conjectured with some probability that
" Capability " Brown had a hand in the laying out of
the garden as it now is. Whoever was the gardener,

it may be confidently asserted that a finer result was
never produced in so small a space.

Of the history of the College during this century there
is not space to say much. Under Warden Symons it
became recognised as the stronghold of Evangelicalism
in the University ; so much was this the case that, on
his nomination to the Vice-Chancellorship in 1844, he
was opposed by the Tractarian party ; but this
unprecedented step met with no success, as the
Chancellor's nomination was confirmed by 883 votes
to 183. It was during his tenure of the Vice-
Chancellorship (1844-8) that proceedings were taken
against Mr. Ward, and against Tract No. XC. But
if on the one hand the College produced leading lights
of the Evangelical school, like Mr. Fox and
Mr. Vores, it also lays claim to Dr. Church, the late
Dean of St. Paul's, and Father Mackonochie.

The prosperity of the College culminated about the
middle of the century, when Dr. Congreve was one of
the leading tutors in Oxford, and when among his
pupils almost at the same time were Dr. Johnson, the
Bishop of Calcutta, the present Warden, Frederick
Harrison, the late Dr. Shirley, one of the founders
of the school of History, which is among modern
Oxford's chief glories, Dr. Codrington, the scholar
and missionary, the late T. C. Baring, the munificent
benefactor of Hertford College, and Professor Beesly.
Nor was athletic distinction wanting ; in 1849 the
College Boat Club "swept the board" at Henley, and
twice during six years the Wadham boat was head of
the river. Here it is best to end the story : with the
new statutes imposed in 1855 by the authority of Par-
liament, the history of the old Oxford ends, and that
of the modern one begins. Wadham enters on the
new era with noble traditions, and with buildings and
gardens which have been felt to be an inspiration of
beauty by other than her own sons.

The greater part of the above notice is taken from
my chapter on Wadham College in A. Clark's The
Colleges of Oxford (Messrs. Methuen & Co.), to which
I must refer all who wish for further particulars.
