occurs at the SW. corner of the College, which is not described as
occupied by any Hall, and where we are not quite certain about the
position of the lane and of S. I\Iiklred"s church. Wooil [Cily i. 115)
only says of Caslcll Hall 'about the corner at the W. end of S. IMildrcd's

Lane.' An Osney rental of 1259 (Wood D. 2. p. 458 S. Mildred's)
says ' domus in occidenUxli parte ecclesiae quae fuit Johannis de
S. Johanna/ &c., next to which is ' domus super terram Wyger ex
opposito eiusdem ecclesiae,' &c. There is also some doubt about the
two towers on the N. side of the College. The summary at the end
of Prideaux' Survey says ' 2 Towres which were formerly in the
Rector's backyard and garden, now all demolished.' The eastern of
these, south of the centre of the Ashmolean, seems from an old map
(B) in the Rector's possession to have been Almond's (p. 313) and
may be part of the land sold to the University (Wood's Life iii. 78,
Comp. Vice-Canc. 1678-9 'to D^ Bury for ground bought of Exeter
College for Ashmole's Repository 80 li.'). About the other there is
no doubt, as the foundation has been seen by many people.

Some apology is due for reproducing a copy only of Agas' view of
the College. The original is rather small for easy comparison with
Bereblock ; and it is so torn, blotted and stained, that it is doubtful if
a tolerable negative can be obtained from it ; it is also defective
towards the bottom. Whittlesey's copy of it contains a few departures
from the original. Mr. Flurst has therefore worked out an enlarged
copy of the Agas, and supplied the defective parts from Whittlesey.
A dotted line in the lower part of the view shows how far Agas and
his copyist have been taken as authorities. The Clarendon Press
has shown its usual skill in taking the negatives.

The Author is much indebted to the Rector and Bursar, to
Professor Byvvater, Falconer Madan, Esq., Sub-Librarian of the
Bodleian, W. B. Gamlen, Esq., of Exeter College, Secretary to the
University Chest, and other friends ; but, above all, to his brothers
G. C. Boase and F. Boase, who have devoted much time to reading
the proofs, and have contributed much additional information ; and to
Prebendary Hingeston-Randolph, and to J. Ingle Dredge, Vicar of
Buckland Brewer, who have done him a similar kind office, the
former supplying details from his unrivalled knowledge of the Epis-
copal Registers, the latter by the use of his Collections amassed
from the parish registers of Devon and through an unwearied cor-
respondence with the Western clergy. For special family history he
has not seldom consulted Winslow Jones Esq. Any one working on
these subjects must acknowledge his obligations to Clark's University

n



clxxviii HISTORY OF EXETER COLLEGE.

Register (O. H. S.), and to Foster's monumental work, the Alumni
Oxonienses ; as well as to Crockford's Clerical Directory, with its
ever-increasing fullness of information. Nor must he omit his
obligations to Horace Hart, Esq., Controller of the Clarendon Press,
for giving him the benefit of his experience, and it would be
ungrateful not to thank the Compositors and the Pressmen for their
care.

The author will be grateful for any further additions and correc-
tions. A few lines of facts and dates (as all engaged on such tasks
are aware) often represent the work of hours ; Facilia putant omnes

REGISTER OF EXETER COLLEGE.



The College was founded in 1 3 1 4 by Walter de Stapeldon, bishop
of Exeter, under the name of Stapeldon Hall. Deeds of 1314 and
1 31 5 mention the Rector and Scholars, i.e. Fellows, but no names
occur until 13 18. The contractions Corn., Chapl., Dev., Guer., Jer.,
Petr., Sar., Shi. denote the Cornish, Chaplain, Devon, Guernsey, Jersey,
Petrean, Sarum, and Shiers foundations ; small letters show that the
attribution is doubtful.

John Parys, Dev. 1318; M.A., Rector Oct. 1318 — Oct. 131 9, when
probably not in full orders. Stapeldon's Reg. 28 Ap. 1321 ' apud
