A SURVEY OF EXETER COLLEGE

Taken by Dr. Prideaux 29 Dec. 1631 ; beginning at the West
Tower [built 1605], now the Fore Gate, and so circuiting on the right
hand till it end where it began. [From a copy made by Rector
T. Stinton, with some additions by Rector J. L. Richards. Stinton
abridged in parts, and it is not easy to make out what he added.]

1. Of the Privy Kitchin Buildings \ In that place stood the ancient
Privyes, from the foundation. In Processe of Tyme, when the Colledge
became inlarged and the Company increased, these were found too
straight, and have been so often drayned on all sides and within so
short a space that the rottenness of the ground about admitted no
more emptying. Wherefore necessity caused the burying of these
and the building of new Privyes [1614].

These Buildings have in them five rooms. The ist lower that
hath a dore to the CoUedg is allotted to the Bible-Clearke in lieu
of his old chamber that was annexed to the old Chapel now the
Library. An old bedstead without any covering, and a chest opening
in the side, are implements [furniture] in it. It is now in possession
of W°i Rowland, Bible-Clarke. The chamber over it, with a chimney
in it, hath in it, and another opposite to the same, house implements
in them. In ye kitchen under, cockloft over, ye boards and ye
luggage there belongs to ye Rector. In ye kitchen and larder
under, ye dresser and larder boards are ye College's.

These buildings were erected at the Colledg charges, the Rector
conferring about 40s to it. They belong to the Rector, in that they
stand upon the ground which appertained to his Back Side and house
of office before the alteration by reason of building the Chapel.

2. From that the space between the Walls, keeping of the same
breadth to the City Walls, the ground w^as not consecrated, but was
reserved so in case Benefactours might be led by God to build
lodgings there " ; which was also the consideration that the Chapel

This part was rebuilt about 1672, and the Chapel staircase N. of it finished 16S2.

* Now the Chapel staircase, no. S.

hath no west window. In that space the narrowe garden and
mound were at the Rector's charge. The Httle Privye of 12
deepe was erected at the House-cost to remayne for the Rector's
familye.

3. The new building ^ behind the Chaple erected at the Rector's
charg (especially when the Earle of Carnarvan, Jo. Robarts sole son
to the Lord Robarts, the Lord Wharton and Sir Tho. Wharton
his brother, with M^ Lorenzo Carye the Lord Falkland's son, were
togither pupills under him). Of the space ^ between the Chapel and
Towne Wall y* is consecrated ground as runneth even in length with
the Chapel, and noe more ; as appeareth by the Instrument.

The Tower house standing between the butts, heretofore^, before
the Rector's stable was taken in lease from the Towne by D^ Holland,
who builded it and left it to his wife M^s Susanna Holland ; she sold
hir right therein to D^ Prideaux, the succeeding Rector, in whose
possession it now remaynes, paying yearly for it 2^ to the Cittye,
until Dr Holland's lease be ended. This, being before a stable, was
turned into a Kitching, with the Lodgings over it, at the charg of the
sayd Rector D^" Prideaux ; who, yielding up his lease which he had
of Mrs Holland, took a new of the Colledg for 40 years, for the
entrance of that lower rome and studye which stands on the Mount.
The Colledge was at the most charge, as also for the rayles about the
new part, and walling of it. The Dyall on the Mount is the said
Rector's, given unto him by Richard Standish (?), mason, when he
was Vicechancellour.

4. Without the Rector's Back side, ranging along by the Cittye
Wall, stood 3 little gardens, which were demolished when the East
part of the publique Library and Schooles were built. They belonged
to the Colledg, but were let out to Principal Bradwell ^ widow
Almond ^, and goodwife Hollyday. That next the Schools Principal
Braddle was well paid for by the University. The 2 others rest
yet to be reckoned for, both for the stones and lease.

All that space of ground upon part of which the Mount and our
Chapel stand, and out of which we had our Bowling Alley •"', was

' Since demolished. ^ Rector's Area, Nortli side of the Chapel.

' The Bog there adjoining, to the South side of the City Wall, and on the North
side of the Rector's courtyard, was emptied and cleansed, and the building over it
renewed, in 1785.

formerly a common Cart-Waye ', which we gott to be interrupted
and inclosed, from the Citty, in a lease of 99 years, by King James's
mandatory letters to the Maior and Aldermen, who before with-
stood us : which letters were procured by meanes of the now
Marquesse of Hamilton, some tymes student of our Colledg,
which we and our successors will acknowledge with thankfull
Remembrance.

5. Ranging with the Bowling Alley, without the doore in the City-
Wall stand our publique Privyes'^. Builded at the Colledg charg
(cost 200 //), in the dongeon of w^h are left two Arches opposite
East and West, about the midst : to be taken notice of by Posterity
that may have occasion to empt them.

Of the 3 Roomes into the wch they are divided, that next the
Wall with the Roome over it is only for the Rector's use. The second
for the Fellowes : and the third for the Company of the House. Over
these 2 Roomes are Woodhouses belonging to those that had their
Woodhouses demolished at the building of the new Hall and Sellers.
The tenement of one Davye Waters without it is part of the ground
whereof we have a lease from the Cittye for [? 40] years, paying
yearely for the whole.

6. Eastward from the Privyes, the Tower in the Towne Walk
is a part of the mentioned ground lease of 99 years, but a lease of . . .
with a garden before it was granted by the Cittye to one Thomas
Almond for the Terme of 41, wch terme the Colledg is bound in their
grand lease quietly to suffer to. . . . But, anno 1632, the interest
of Almond was bought in by John Prideaux, Rector, for the summe
of 30 // for 23 yeares, w^h Almond had then in it : who renewed that
lease to make it up 40 yeares, and so to pay i^^ yearely for it to the
Colledg.

The Bowling Alley, Rayles, and the two Freestone Walls that bound
it were erected and perfected at the Colledg charg, which was no
small thing, to turne a place so deformed and incommodious (being a
stinking unpitched Cartway before) to the Use it now serves : both for
Recreation, Comlynesse, and benefit of the lower chambers that open
their windows to it.

So much of the Outworkes or Suburbs.

1. In Chapel Row (called before Rector s Row) the Chapel there
erected was at the charg of Geo. Hakewell D^" of Divinitye, Chaplayne
to his IMaj^'ys Charles the i** both when he was Prince and King. He
was an Exceter man, born of pious and worthy Parents : Fellow of
this Colledg, wherein he took all his degrees : afterwards was Arch-
deacon of Surrye. His learning appears in his printed workes. But
his piety and bounty in this, that having two sonnes of his owne to be
provided for, he notwithstanding gave 1200^1 by the least for the
publique good of the Place he was bred in. For the waynscoting of
and paynting the Sowther Isle the Colledg was at the charge of about
2ooli, in regard the Building Plott by the Founder was by so much
and more exceeded.

2. Adjoyning to the Chapel are the Rector's Lodgings : which
howsoever indamaged by that neighbourhood in the loss of a garden
and private walkes, with the stopping of three western windowes, the
far best light to the roomes abutting that way, yet all these are more
than recompensed by the Fitnesse of the place for his own private
entrance to it, and the separated seates for his Familye.

To the Rector's Lodgings ^ there belong
i*^t Cellar, divided into two roomes.

* The part of the Rector's Lodgings looking eastward, and containing the
Kitchen, the Dining Room over it, and the Long Garret over that, were built
by D"" Arthur Bury in 1671, the House fronting northwards by D^ Prideaux
himself, subsequently to this Survey in 1631. The windows of the Dining Room
were new glazed in 17S5; having been before glazed in 1733 by 1^"' AtwcU
in the manner of Italian Ealcony-windows, which let in Pools of \N'ater in rainy
weather.

The south front of the Rector's Lodging towards the Quadrangle was new
sashed together with all the other windows of the Quadrangle, and great West
Front of the Coll. towards Jesus Coll. in long Vacation 1789 (Soluta Varia 3 Dec.
1789, 6 May 1790).

The same front cleansed, with a stone-coloured wash, and the windows and
cornice new painted, early in June 1793. [In pencil] Tliis front, or rather the
whole Lodgings, taken dnwn and rebuilt, being raised to a height corresponding
willi the rest of the College jSoo-2.

and these two . . . windowes added to it to supply the Light taken
from it by the Chapel.

of the same Rector, and that division of . . . with a door opening to
