Papers relating to Archbishop Thomas Tenison's bequest, 1713 - 1723

Reference Code: GBR/0268/CCCC10/7

Scope and Contents

Among other benefactions Tenison bequeathed to the college a sum of £1000 which he had lent to Robert Clarke of St Ives, Hunts., on a mortgage on an estate there. The mortgage was finally redeemed by Lady Hatton, in 1791, and the £1000 vested in 3 per cent consols. From 1715 until 1791 the lands were in the possession of the college, and a separate set of accounts kept. The profits, in accordance with Tenison's will were devoted to the augmentation of scholarships, the residue being added to the fellows' dividends.
