Scholar originally meant Fellow. Scholars in the modern sense do
not occur till a late period (Shadwell's Reg. Orielense, pref.). We find
exhibitioners perhaps earlier. A bible clerk is mentioned in 1403,
1529, and 1621.

Sir John Acland, besides contributing to the New Hall, gave £16
a year to two scholars at the College, Izacke's Register 1736 p. n ;
and William Jesse, fellow 1639, is called pensionarius Aclandianus in

Robert Vilvaine, fellow, founded in 1637 4 exhibitions of £32 each
yearly, to be paid through the Rector and Subrector ; 2 from the High
School and 2 from the Free Grammar School at Exeter, to be held for
7 years during residence without other preferment.

On 20 June 1877, in reply to the Visitor, the College did not oppose
the Acland Exhibitions being made tenable at any University or other
place of higher education ; but, if the exhibitioner should come to
Oxford, required that he should enter at Exeter College. It took no
action as to the Vilvaine Exhibitions.

In 1622 (State Papers 27 Sep.) Thomas Stevens' sister was to pay
£330 for her husband's legacies, viz. £100 to maintain poor scholars
at Exeter College, £100 to the University Library, £100 to S. Michael's,
where his son lay buried, £20 for a scaffold for scholars in that church,
£10 to Dr. Prideaux.

Samuel Hill in 1634 gave £100, to relieve poor scholars and
servitors, including at least 2 from Devon and 2 from Cornwall, by
gifts of 30 shillings a year; Gutch iii. 106.

Robert Michell founded by will, 28 Mch 1641, an exhibition for
which he gave the rent of 6 acres called Wild Arish in Withecombe
Raleigh, ' the profits to be divided at Michaelmas among such poor
scholars of the College as be servitors and apply themsch'cs to the
study of divinity.'

24 Nov. 1637 age 16, B.A. 3 July 1641. He founded by will, dated
11 Nov. 1664, 'out of the lands which he himself had purchased,' an
exhibition for ' some ingenious scholar whose father hath not above
£30 per annum in land or estate, to be chosen out of Lincolnshire and
Notts, upon the election of the Master of Retford Hospital [now the
Subdean of Lincoln] and the Archdeacon of Nottingham, the same
scholar to be admitted and educated in Exeter College, Oxford' ; it is
for Lincoln and Notts alternately ; the property is quite distinct from
the property of Retford Hospital, see Reg. 15 May 1793. It was long
before the property was so applied. The first exhibitioner noticed is
in 1705. The present rental is £75 io.r., chiefly from 6 houses in
a court at Retford, and a few acres of land in W. Retford parish.

Meriel Symes of Barwick, Som., y. d. of Sir John Horner of INIells,
Som. by Ann Speke, b. 1635, d. 1717 (Misc. Gen. 1882 iv. 163),
widow of Thomas Symes and mother of John Symes (who d. 6 July
1687 age 20, and was buried in the south aisle of the College Chapel),
founded an exhibition for the maintenance of a poor scholar at Exeter
College by deed dated 7 Nov. 17 10; open to members of the College
being of the kindred of John Symes, or, in default of such, to poor
scholars born in Somerset or Dorset ; in default of such, to natives of
those counties at any other College ; in default of such, to any poor
scholar of Exeter College ; the scholar must be examined touching his
learning and abilities, and must intend to study divinity, and may hold
the scholarship for eight years, unless otherwise provided for, but
must reside without being absent above forty days in any one year,
except in case of sickness, and even then the Rector must approve the
cause of his absence ; each scholar is to have the sums accruing during
a previous vacancy, but, if the scholar becomes a Fellow of any
College, he receives half the sums accruing during his year of proba-
tion, the other half going to the College Treasury. But if the scholar
at the end of five years is not able to render any chapter of the Greek
Testament into Latin and also any chapter in the Hebrew Pentateuch
(upon examination by the Bishop of Bath and Wells, or some one
appointed by him), the scholarship shall be void. The College may
make leases of the lands for 2 1 years, but it must be at the full value
&c. Meriel's own kin, the Homers, were included (see the Horner
pedigree in Hutchins ii. 667) ; and, as her sister Ann married John
Harington of Kelston near Bath, the Haringtons were admitted,
though John Harington seems to have only had a daughter Ann
(who married Sir Robert Chaplyn) by Ann Horner, and the rest of


his children were by his three other wives, I\Iisc. Gen. 1881 p. 23.
Meriel (who d. 30 Mch 181 3 age 78), great granddaughter of iMeriel
Symes' brother Sir George Horner, married John Williams of
Herringstone, and their granddaughter Elizabeth Williams married
R. A. Burney, which admitted the Burneys. IMeriel Symes herself
named the first scholar; the land she gave consisted of three
undivided parts in ten of Norwood Park called Shortwood, a mile
from Glastonbury, containing by estimate 142 acres, together with
the tithes thereof. The scholarship is now held for 5 years (since
1875), and is divided into two.
