Histoire de Cambridge

Cambridge history


Whilst Cambridge possibly existed in Roman times, and grew into a Norman market town (the name of the town mutated from Grentabrige or Cantebrigge (Grantbridge) its University has made it was it is today.

The University was formed 1209 when a group of Oxford scholars moved to the town to escape the violence prevelent in Oxford at the time. But even in these days the University was having problems of discipline (!). Students belonged to no particular body, were not responsible to any person and came and went in an irregular manner. By 1231 Cambridge students were sufficient in numbers and apparently so unruly that Henry III issued a number of writs for the punishment of the disorderly.

It was the solutions to these disciplinary problems, thought up by Hugh de Balsham, Bishop of Ely from 1257 to 1286 that was to sow the seeds of todays college system. He placed the scholars (now known as the "scholars of the Bishop of Ely") in two houses next to the Church of St Peter on the Trumpington Road. This became known as "The House of St Peter" and thus gradually the college system began to evolve, and Peterhouse, the first Cambridge college, was born.

In 1318 the University was officially baptised with a Papal Bull from Pope John XXII. Other colleges followed soon after: Trinity college (originally called Michaelhouse) was founded in 1324 by the Chancellor of the Exchequer of the time, Hervey de Stanton, and Clare college, originally called University Hall, was next in 1326. Pembroke college was founded in 1347 by the wife of the Eearl of Pembroke and the following year, Edward Gonville founded a college of his own which came to be known as Gonville Hall: this was then refounded by Dr John Caius in 1557 to give us Gonville and Caius.

Most colleges were founded by wealthy individuals from the Church, Government or landowners. Corpus Christi, founded in 1352, is unusual in that it is the only college which sprang directly from members of the town. Christopher Marlow, Shakespeare's famous contemporary, was a student at the college and one can still see his rooms in the old court.

King's College founded in the fifteenth century: Henry VI intended it to form part of a double foundation with Eton and in doing this there is some evidence that he was repeating the plan of William of Wykeham, who had founded Winchester and New College, Oxford. Queens' was founded by Margaret of Anjou, wife of Henry VI, and later, William IV's wife Elizabeth Woodville became a co-founder (thus Queens' rather than Queen's). This has not unnaturally be described as the first outward symbol of the reconciliation of the houses of York and Lancaster.

The fifteen century also brought two other colleges: John Alcock, the then Bishop of Ely, founded Jesus in 1469 and Robert Wodelark, a Provost of Kings College, founded St Catharine's in 1473.

Now with 31 colleges, the University has gradually grown in size, stature and influence on the world: its graduates have reached the highest levels in science, the Church, government, and business throughout the world.

We had a lovely two days. Sidney Sussex was a great place to be - central yet quiet. Staff at the college were helpful without being too intrusive. We'll be back again!

(Examen de Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge)

In the website , it was not mentioned that the block will not have lift access. The only difficulty I had there was to climb 2 fleets of stairs with luggage.

(Examen de Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge)

A bit more advice about parking would be helpful; I only found out by chance that I couldn't stay in the Park & Ride car park overnight, so had to leave myself enough time to find parking close enough to walk to the |Park & Ride.

(Examen de Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge)

We really had a very pleasant stay in a fantastic location. The room and bed was very comfortable and the breakfast plentiful. Staff very friendly and helpful.

(Examen de Westminster College, Cambridge)

As it was the Olympics a TV or a radio in the room would have been useful, not significant but slightly inconvenient. However I would certainly recommend Univesity Rooms and use them again myself. All in all we had a splendid stay in Cambridge.

(Examen de Corpus Christi College, Cambridge)

The room was a bit basic. New to me was having a bath (nice) but having no shower. Some shower facility inside the bath would have been nice. But other than that, the location, the views, the friendly service, the rich breakfast, the overall athmospehre etc very easily make up for this. A overall great experience! I will recommend to others and gladly come back again.

(Examen de St John's College, Cambridge)

The porters were exceptionallly helpful and very patient with endless questions. Nothing seemed like too much trouble for them, a great assett to your college. We had a wonderful time, too short but will return as soon as we can.A perfect resting place.

(Examen de Churchill College, Cambridge)

Arrived after dark and although i knew the college, I did find it difficult to navigate around college grounds to my room because lighting and signposting not very visitor friendly.

(Examen de West Court (Jesus College), Cambridge)

Unfortunately I had problems with the first room due to excessive noise from a (heating ?) pump lodged behind the wall but was able to move rooms on second night and this was very much better. Staff extremely helpful and I very much enjoyed the architecture and sculpture, and the otherwise quiet atmosphere !
