Pembroke College. — The conversion of the Hall into a College came about in this way. Thomas Tesdale,
maltster and merchant, of Glympton, Oxon, a fortnight before his decease, in 1610, bequeathed ^5000 for the
purchase of lands, etc. , to maintain seven fellows and six scholars to be elected from the free grammar school in
Abingdon into any college in Oxford. Abbot, the then Lord Primate, desired to secure this foundation for Balliol
College, and a provisional agreement was signed with the Mayor and burgesses of Abingdon, on the strength of
which Balliol purchased for ,£300 a building for the housing of Tesdale's fellows and scholars. But twelve years
after Tesdale's death his foundation was augmented by a benefaction of Richard Wightwick, B. D., rector of
East Ilsley, so as to support ten fellows and ten scholars. This turned the thoughts of the citizens of Abingdon
in a more ambitious direction, and they desired the foundation of a separate and independent College. An Act
of Parliament was got and a petition presented to the King, who by letters patents, dated June 29th, 1624, con-
stituted Broadgates Hall, which had been fixed upon as a likely stock on which to graft the new foundation, to be
"one perpetual College of divinity, civil and canon law, arts, medicine and other sciences; to consist of one
master or governour, ten fellows, ten scholars, or more or fewer, to be known by the name of ' the Master
Fellows and Scholars of the College of Pembroke in the University of Oxford, of the foundation of King James,
at the costs and charges of Thomas Tesdale and Richard Wightwicke." The new College was named from
Shakspeare's friend and patron William Herbert, Earl of Pembroke, a Maecenas of that age, who as Chancellor
was already Visitor of Broadgates, and from whom, had not his death happened suddenly, the College hoped to

[ 541—542 ]




have received more than a bare name. In his
honour the Chancellor was always to be, and is
still, the Visitor of the College. It bears his arms,
three rampant lions argent on a field azure and
gules, with the royal rose and thistle on a chief
argent and or.

Tesdale's brass in Glympton Church, put up a few
years after his death, represents him as "liberally
beneficial to Balliol Colledge. " Balliol however was
put into Chancery for the restitution of the £300,
which finally was handsomely paid by Archbishop
Abbot. Savage, Master of Balliol, complains with
pardonable resentment of the conduct of "this re-
jeton " as he calls the new foundation, which was
inaugurated with considerable ceremony on August 5,
1624, the students of Broadgates becoming members
of Pembroke. Great and wide interest seems to have
been taken in this the youngest of the Colleges, and
further benefactions came to it, a principal donor
being Sir John Benet, Lord Ossulstone. King
Charles I. gave up the patronage of S. Aldate's to it,
and founded a fellowship, as also at Jesus College and
Exeter, to be held by a native of Guernsey or Jersey,
with a view to raising the state of ecclesiastical learning
in the Channel Islands. Bishop Morley, in the next
reign, founded five exhibitions for Channel Islanders.
In 1 7 14 Queen Anne annexed a Gloucester prebend
to the Mastership. Other considerable benefactions
have been made since, especially by Francis Wight-
wick, Esq., Mrs. Sophia Sheppard and the Rev. Chris-
topher Cleoburey, and though this College has smaller
corporate revenues than any, it is very well off for

Buildings. — The only part of Broadgates (which
Hutten calls " that venerable piece of antiquity ") still
remaining is the Dining Hall, since 1848 the Library.
The present Old Quadrangle was built between 1624
and 1694, but lost much of its pleasing and quaint
character in 1829 when the exterior front was re-
modelled and a storey added to the tower. The
Master's Lodging, once a five-gabled late 17th cen-
tury building, was also Gothicized and sub-
sequently raised one storey. The present New
Quadrangle, consisting of Dining Hall and Fellows'
and Undergraduates' rooms, was built during the
mastership of Dr. Jeune in 1844, taking the place
of the picturesque old gabled ' ' Back lodgings "
(figured in Ingram's Memorials). The large grass
plat was formerly three ancient gardens divided by
walls, that furthest to the west belonging to the
Fellows, the centre one to the Master, and the strip
on the east being a common garden. Here were a
bowling alley, a ball-court, shady bowers, dipt walks,
arbours, and a curious dial. When the Chapel was
built in 1728, the year of Johnson's admission, the
common garden was converted into gravel. In spite
of the destruction of its former old-world charm, this
quadrangle, hardly suspected to exist by the casual
passer-by, is, with its irregular buildings covered with
creepers, extremely pleasing. The Hall is an
unusually good example of the Gothic Revival, and
within the last few years the plain Ionic Chapel has
been splendidly decorated, at a cost of ,£3,000, from
the designs of Mr. C. E. Kempe, M. A., a member
of the College, the windows in the Renaissance
manner being unequalled specimens of modern glass-
painting. The " Wolsey Almshouse " was acquired
from Christ Church in 1888 for £11,000.

Past Days. — Except for the transverse addition at
one end, built in 1620 by Principal Clayton, the
irregularly shaped room which is now the Library

is scarcely changed since the days of Bonner and
Beaumont and Pym and Camden and Browne. Here
George Whitefield carried about in leathern jacks — as
he had done in his mother's alehouse at Gloucester —
the liquor, or "coll," which Johnson abused as
muddy and uninspiring to Latin themes : —

" Carmina vis nostri scribant meliora poetae?
Ingenium jubeas purior haustus alat."

Here on a Powder-Plot day Johnson made his first
declamation, as Madam Piozzi relates. Here the
juniors " went round the fire " on gaudy days. Here
they attended lectures. "Sir, you have sconced me
twopence for a lecture not worth a penny," Johnson
told his tutor Jorden one day when he had been
sliding in Christ Church meadows. In later years he
said, "Whenever a young man becomes Jorden's
pupil he becomes his son." His own rudeness and
boisterousness were but on the surface. He was often
to be seen lounging in the College gate with a circle
of young men round him whom he was entertaining
with wit and keeping from their studies, if not spirit-
ing them up, says Bishop Percy, to rebellion against
the College discipline, which in after life he so
vigorously extolled. Dr. Adams told Boswell that
while at Pembroke Johnson was caressed and loved
by all about him, was a gay and frolicsome fellow,
and passed there the happiest part of his life. Johnson
hearing this from Boswell said, "Ah, sir, I was mad
and violent. It was bitterness which they mistook
for frolick. I was miserably poor and I thought to
fight my way by my literature and my wit ; so I
disregarded all power and all authority." When
some kind hand placed a pair of new shoes at his
door, Johnson, as soon as he discovered them, flung
them passionately away. His room, practically unal-
tered, is a very small one in the second storey over
the common gate. He was not, however — pace
Carlyle and Mr. Leslie Stephen — a servitor Johnson
ceased to reside in December 1729, taking no degree ;
but, we are told, "he had contracted a love and
regard for Pembroke College which he retained to the
last." He loved it none the less that it was reputed a
Jacobitical place. In the height of his fame he was
never happier than in re-visiting his old College,
where his life-long friend Dr. Adams was Master,
gallanting it about in academic gown with Hannah
More, and pointing out to her the rooms of the
Pembroke poets, — "We were a nest of singing
birds," he said. "Here we walked; there we played
at cricket," — conversing with old servants whom he
remembered, shewing Warton where he had tried
at the classical lecture to sit out of earshot of Meeke's
construing, or taking Boswell into the old summer
common-room on the city-wall and telling him
"Ay, here I used to play at draughts with Phil Jones
and Fludyer. Jones loved beer and did not get very
forward in the Church. Fludyer turned out a scoun-
drel, a Whig, and said he was ashamed of having been
bred at Oxford." People flocked to Pembroke
Chapel to gaze at the great despot of letters, that
tender-hearted humble Christian worshipper. Just
before his death he paid the familiar scenes a last
fond visit. His deeply pathetic " Prayers and
Meditations " with some of his College exercises are
in the Library, where are also the little deal desk on
which he wrote the Dictionary, and his bust by
Bacon. In the Common Room are his teapot, holding
two quarts, and a splendid portrait by Reynolds.

Pembroke produced an unusual number of eminent
sons in the early part of the 18th century. Its




character also stood high, though Prideaux in 1694
calls it " the fittest colledge in the town for brutes."
A Mr. Lapthorne, twenty years later, draws a different
picture of it. "I have placed my son in Pembroke
Colledge. The house, though it bee but a little one,
yet is reputed to be one of the best for sobriety and
order." Shenstone entered 1732 with Graves, author
of the Spiritual Quixote, a satire on the Methodists.
Graves draws a lively picture of the different sets in
College. Among the servitors was Whitefield who
also entered in 1832. He tells us that he was solicited
to join in excess of riot with several who lay in the
same room ; but God gave him grace to withstand
them. " I had no sooner received the sacrament
publickly on a week-day at St. Mary's but I was set
up as a mark for all the polite students that knew me
to shoot at. I daily underwent some contempt from
the collegians. Some have thrown dirt at me and
others took away their pay from me." Another con-
temporary was Blackstone the eminent jurist. At an
earlier date the names of Pembroke men include
Bishop Timothy Hall, one of the few clergy who read
the Declaration of Indulgence, Chief Justice Dyer,
Collier, Southern, and at a later date Durel, Hender-
son, Gilbert, Valpy, Lempriere, Jeune. The two
Beaumonts and Johnson lie in Westminster Abbey,
where the remains of Pym also lay for a short while.

This house went through the usual troubles in the
17th century The 18th was its flowering time. In
the present century the vigorous administration of Dr.
Jeune gave Pembroke a great lift, but it has remained
a small but cosy College, noted for its excellent
kitchen, its fine show of plate, its compact sociability,
while the large proportion of scholars among its
members has given it some distinction in the schools.
The Eight was head of the River in 1872 and the
Torpid in 1877, 1878 and 1879. The Master, Fellows,
and Scholars are patrons of eight benefices. In spite
of recent changes, the Master must still be in holy
orders, and the tutorial fellows are bound to celibacy.
There is a flourishing and old-established Literary
Club called the "Johnson, "a Debating and a Musical
Society, and one of the earliest founded Wine Clubs.
It should be mentioned that the College Library has
lately had lustre added to it by the unique Aristotelian
collection of the late Professor Chandler, presented
by Mrs. Sophia Evans.
