Diagrams to exhibit Changes in the Buildings.
N.B. There was no Turl- front to the College till after Elizabeth's
days; previously to that, the main entrance was on the north side
(it is now on the west), under Palmer's Tower. This tower and
part of one set of rooms, to the east of it, are all the portions of the
XV century College that remain, and they are indicated by F in all
the diagrams which follow.

Remarks on the Plan.

This attempt to construct a plan of the College differs considerably
from any previous attempt in the same direction : first, the number of
documents consulted has been more numerous ; secondly, the originals
of all of those in College possession have been carefully transcribed
and compared in all instances with Wood's transcripts in MS. D. 2.
The result is by no means encouraging: — the more the material
accumulated, the more discrepancies were noticed, one with another,
and frequently, too, with the hasty conclusions of W^ood. To have
made the plan at all resemble that in his Ci'/y i. 113, would have
been plainly in opposition to several charters he himself must have

In a few cases measurements were obtained, but they have scarcel}-


proved of so much value as was hoped. Still, the relative positions of
eleven of the tenements on the present site have been probably
accounted for, but regarding a twelfth too little has been unearthed,
and as regards ' St. Petir Hall on Wyger's land ' its relative bearing
to any of the known ones abutting on St. Mildred's Lane is nowhere
given. The references to this hall mainly occur in the rentals of
Osney which seldom advert to position ; this fact, and the obscurity
elsewhere, are the key to the very peculiar statements in the plan
by Wood before noticed. It is almost clear that Wood omitted to
notice that the wording in one instance is ' ex opposito ejusdem
ecclesiae S. Mildredae,' but the position of that church still remains
doubtful. He regarded the body exhumed from the foundation of the
south extremity of Peryam's ' Mansions ' as indicating the site of the
church, but the remains were found so near to the lane that we may
easily imagine an encroachment by the tenement on which it was
found, upon some part, perhaps the east, of the former churchyard.
Nor had the discovery of human remains south of the present kitchen
and of two more in the Turl, been then made. These are probably
interments in the west part of the churchyard, for it would never have
occurred to our ancestors to bury on the north side of a church, and
moreover there are good reasons for locating the site of the church
well within the present hmits of Lincoln College, near or on the site of
the present Common Room.

It may be noticed that not one of the tenements toward the south-
west of the Exeter site is described as angulare or ad conieriam ; this is
so unusual as to lead to the theory that some cottage, a priest's house
or other structure, had grown up at the west end of the churchyard
and obliterated that angle.

Mr. Clark's conclusions upon the question of sites have been
generally followed, and a few particulars have been taken from an old
map in the Rector's possession (B) which assisted indeed in some
points, especially in the position of the earliest buildings, but added to
the complexity by providing two apparent bastions in front of the
College. In making the north face of the early College to be out of
the straight line, this map, because of a well-known propensity, is
probably correct. The eastern boundary has intentionally been left
undecided ; its variations at several periods would be these ; — i. Before
the Divinity School was built; — 2. before the enclosure south of the
same was obtained ; — 3. after the site of the west wing of Bodley had
been sold ; — 4. before a portion of School Street at the east of the



present garden was obtained ; — 5 and 6, before and after part of the
' Lane under the walls ' was obtained ; — and 7, when a part of it
(«. «.) south-west of the Sheldonian had been relinquished to the
University. To have attempted all these would have resulicd in
a confused mass of lines.

To keep the plan distinct, letters only have been placed at certain
angles of buildings, to which the following is a key.

About Stapeldon's monument S. Hart, fellow of Exeter, writes from Exeter
17 June 1792 to rector T. Stinton as follows (Gough, Oxford 86), 'It is in a
perfect state, though it has not undergone any repairs since 1733. Especially the
two tablets of wood where the verses are (over the monument) are in high preser-
vation. The word feretra in the 4th distich is too plainly legible. These tablets
front the north Aile, their back is towards the chancel, and is hid by a wainscot
screen ornamented with pillars and arches after the Grecian manner. It was this
facing of wainscot which the Chapter wished to remove, meaning to put in its
place something in the Gothic style, of a piece with the Fabric ; but when Dean
Buller left Exeter this design was dropped, and no alteration whatever has been
made. Now that I am upon the subject of monuments, I am reminded of a grave-
stone in the church of Crediton, which records the death of John Lyndon, dean of
the collegiate church of Crediton, who had been rector of Exeter College, and if
I mistake not was a party in giving the advowson of Menhcnniot. He died
Dec. 16, 1482. The stone h.id been broken and the fragments lay in different
parts of the church. I have had them put together.'
