Agreement between the college and the Dean and Chapter, mediated by Parker, for three 'Canterbury' scholars, 1569-05-31

Reference Code: GBR/0268/CCCC02/M/14/14

Scope and Contents

The scholars are to be chosen by the Dean and Chapter from the free school in Canterbury being the children of their tenants and farmers in Norfolk, Suffolk and Lincolnshire; in default of the Dean and Chapter making such a choice it is to be made by the Dean and Chapter of Westminster from students of Westminster free school. The scholars are to receive chambers, commons, barber, 'launder' and 'Reedings' and other necessaries as other scholars. The college is to pay a 20s fine for not accepting a chosen scholar. In default of nomination by either Dean and Chapter the college may choose anyone from a free grammar school in the province of Canterbury, and may from time to time choose a Cambridge-born scholar.
The income arises from the £8 13s 4d rent from the tenements in Longditch, Westminster, granted to the college by the Queen on 17 April 1562 and leased by the college to John Wolmer, carpenter (see 09/38/8).
Appended is the Latin confirmation by Parker of 3 June 1569.
