The two Troctors of the University were elected anciently in
Convocation ; but, the elections having hccoine very tumultuous, the
method was changed by an ordinance of King Charles I, and from the
year 1629 the choice was made within the several Colleges according to
i cycle of twenty-three years, which lasted through ten revolutions.
In 1869 a new cycle of thirty years began, adapted to the then existing
condition of the Colleges, and comprising with them the Halls jointly.
In and after 1889 the Proctors will be elected by the Colleges and the
iirw foundation of Keble College singly, and the Non-Collegiate
Students and Private Halls jointly, in a cycle of simple rotation by
which an election will fall to each of the electing bodies once in eleven
years. The electors are at present all those members of the several
Societies who, being Members of Convocation, are also, or have at any
time been, Members of the Congregation of the University, and all those
Fellows and Scholars of a College who are Members of Convocation.
Any such elector may be elected to the office, provided he has com-
pleted four and has not completed fifteen years from his admission to
Eegency in Arts. The election is made on the Wednesday after the
first Sunday in Lent ; and on the second (or occasionally on the first)
Wednesday after Easter the new Proctors are admitted to their offices
in Convocation, and take their seats. They nominate each two Masters
of Arts, of three years' standing at the least, to be their respective
deputies or Pro-Proctors. Each Proctor receives an annual stipend of
.£350, each Pro-Proctor £80.

Proctors from the year 1267.
