From its Foundation in the year 1382
to the present Time
WITH AN APPENDIX
THE CHARTER OF FOUNDATION, WYKEHAM'S
STATUTES OF 1400, AND OTHER DOCUMENTS
THIS compilation is a result of the unrestricted access which the compiler has enjoyed to the muniment room of the College for some years past.
The work is mainly of an antiquarian nature, and was intended to stop at the death of Warden Barter in 1861; but it is thought convenient to add a few pages, containing a summary of the principal changes introduced by the ordinances of the Oxford University Commissioners and by the Statutes of the Governing Body. There is also a Table of Dates, a list of Headmasters, and an Appendix, containing the Charter of Foundation and some other documents referred to in the body of the work, and the Statutes of the Founder, now no longer in force. The compiler's thanks are gratefully tendered to the Rev. Dr. Sewell, Warden of New College, and to the Rev. Professor Bartholomew Price, F.R.S., for perusing the proof-sheets, and for many valuable hints and corrections during the period preceding publication.
