with the vacillations of Sir Thomas Cookes, who at
one time was for Balliol College, at another favoured
the notion of a workhouse for his own County.
However, at last Dr. Woodroffe was so far successful
as to obtain a charter in 1698 for the incorporation of
the Hall under the title of the Provost, Fellows, and
Scholars of Worcester College, with Dr. Woodroffe
for the first Provost. This was followed by a Ratifica-
tion, dated November 18th, naming the Bishop of
Worcester as Visitor, and the Bishop of Oxford as his
assessor in difficult cases, and making elaborate pro-
vision for the organization, conduct, and educational
system of the College on the old fashioned lines.

But the charter remained after all a dead letter.
Sir Thomas Cookes on various grounds still held
back, and it was not till after his death in 1701, and
that of Dr. Woodroffe in 171 1, that the trustees of Sir
T. Cookes' will, saw their way to carrying it out in
favour of Gloucester Hall.



In 1 7 13 St. John's College agrees to alienate
the Hall for the sum of ^200, and a quit-rent
of 2CW. per annum. In the following year, two
days only before the Queen's death, a Charter of
Incorporation, for the second time, passes the Great
Seal, and Gloucester Hall or College is finally
merged in Worcester College. The foundation was
now to consist of a Provost, six Fellows, and six
Scholars, whose emoluments were to be on a some-
what more liberal scale than that of the original
statutes. Fellows and Scholars were to be allowed
sixpence a day for commons, the Fellows to have
^30 per annum, the Scholars 13^. 8d. a quarter, the
Provost ,£80 per annum, but no allowance for
commons ; at the same time the original elaborate
provisions for government and education were simpli-
fied and modernised. The Principal of the Hall,
Blechynden, was named as the first Provost. The
rebuilding of the College, commenced with a modest
benefaction of Mrs. Margaret Alcorne in 1720, pro-
ceeded by very slow degrees. The interior of the
Library was completed in 1736, its exterior in 1746.
The Hall was finished in 1784, while the Chapel still
remained incomplete in 1786, when Gutch wrote his
account. In the meantime two considerable bene-
factors arose. Dr. Clarke, Fellow of All Souls' and
member for the University, left an endowment for six
Fellowships and three Scholarships, together with his
valuable Library, while Mrs. Sarah Eaton, daughter
of the former Principal, bequeathed an endowment
for seven Fellowships and five Scholarships to be held
by the sons of Clergymen. These new Foundations
were incorporated by Charter in 1744. For lodging
Dr. Clarke's Foundation the demolition of the old
Buildings on the North side of the quadrangle was
begun, and nine sets of rooms erected by his trustees
in 1753-9, while in 1773 the remainder of the old
North side was, with the exception of the East end,
swept away, and twelve sets were built for Mrs.
Eaton's Foundation, together with the present Pro-
vost's lodgings. Fortunately funds ran short for
further reconstruction, so that the old Benedictine
tenements still form the Southern side of the quad-
rangle, which has another great merit, that of being
open on its Western side. Meantime the College
from time to time secured adjacent property, and
surrounded itself with an open belt of land, while the
ornamental grounds, as they now exist, were laid out
about 1827.

The latest structural improvements of the College
took place in 1864, when the Chapel was decorated
after the elaborate designs of the late Mr. William
Burges, and again in 1877, when the Hall was
rendered a fitting pendant to the Chapel by the same
Architect. Of the varying fortunes of the College —
exceptionally, and picturesquely varying — some few
relics survive. The annual quit-rent which it still
pays to St. John's is a memorial of one stage of its
history, while the old tenements lining its quadrangle
attest its earlier connection with the great Benedictine
Order, of whom a lingering echo still survives, as it is
said, in the reveille which the Porter, making his
morning rounds, hammers out with a wooden mallet
upon the door of each several staircase.

In drawing up this short account we have been
permitted by the courtesy of the Publishers to make
use of the History of the Colleges and Halls of Oxford,
edited by Mr. Clarke, a work to which the reader is
referred for fuller details.
