The original tenement, mentioned in the deed of , which was bought by Elias de Hertford from Walter de Grendon, mercer, lay between a tenement of the University Blackhall on the west, and a tenement of the Prioress of Studley on the east. In the deed by which Elias de Hertford sells it to John de Dokelynton in , this last tenement is called Micheldhall. The deed was made over to his son, also Elias, in At that time, New College Lane was known as Hammer Hall Lane named after a hall to the east, as New College had not then been founded , and its northern side was the old town wall.

On the other side of Hart Hall along the lane was Shield Hall. In , John sold the two halls to Walter de Stapledon , Bishop of Exeter , who desired to found a college. After just over a year, Stapledon moved his scholars to a larger site that he had purchased on Turl Street , which became Stapledon Hall, later Exeter College. Until the 17th century, there is evidence of scholars including Thomas Ken matriculating at Hart Hall while waiting for a vacancy at New College.

In , Hart Hall is described as having a library, which was unusual for a hall. In , Hart Hall annexed Black Hall also. For some time, Cat Hall was leased by All Souls College , and then by Exeter College, until it also was subsumed into the growing Hart Hall early in the 16th century, giving the hall most of the land around what is today its Old Quadrangle.

The hall attracted an increasing number of Catholics from further afield, including the Jesuit tutor Richard Holtby in , who was instrumental in the conversion of his student, and later Jesuit martyr and saint, Alexander Briant to Catholicism. In the early 17th century, the current Senior Common Room was built as lodgings for the principal.

From this period also, the main entrance of the hall moved from being a narrow passage off New College Lane to a gate on Catte Street. Newton was a well-connected, energetic, educational reformer. He dedicated himself to raising the Hall from debt and securing a firmer financial endowment. Newton planned to redesign the Hall around a proper quadrangle , with a tutor, or angler, and students living in each angle, and common buildings along the sides.

However, only two buildings in his design were ever built: In addition, the appointments of principals for the various halls had established itself in a game of promotion, and a few would-be principals opposed the plan. Meals were simple and cheap, and the principal insisted on eating the same as everyone else. Newton allowed gentlemen-commoners to matriculate at the College, but they paid double fees for the same accommodation and food as the others.

They were originally allowed to wear their coloured gowns and tufted caps, but Newton eventually made them wear the ordinary black gown. Thus, many a well-to-do family sent their sons to Hertford College to instil in them some disciplined education, unlike the privileged wining and dining had by gentlemen-commoners in other colleges. One exception to this succession was David Durell , who built up the reputation and academic success of the College. However, the scheme of four tutors in their respective angles was reduced to two, and cheaper junior fellows took over some of the burden of tutoring.

In May , Bernard Hodgson, last principal of Hertford College died, and no suitable successor could be found and agreed upon. By , matriculation had ceased, and the last students were awarded their degrees. The last tutor and vice-principal, Richard Hewitt, continued to live in his rooms without students until May , when a commission declared Hertford College dissolved.

The first master of the grammar school was appointed in , and its original school building was erected in However, as the school took independent students as well as those belonging to the College, it quickly became an independent institution under its own principal. Magdalen Hall was known for its adherence to the teachings of John Wycliffe , and it was here that William Tyndale , translator of the English Bible and martyr, studied.

Another famous student of the Hall was the political philosopher Thomas Hobbes , who came up in either or Before the demise of Hertford, Magdalen College conspired to make its site ready to receive a transplanted Magdalen Hall. On 15 March , Magdalen College submitted a proposal for the move to Convocation.

The Catte Street frontage was pulled down and rebuilt, and several buildings had an extra storey added to them. Magdalen Hall expanded to fill the space, and became the largest hall by far, numbering members in Macbride and his vice-principals were active in building up the refounded Magdalen Hall.

Macbride served as principal for 54 years, until his death in Macbride was succeeded as principal by his vice-principal, Richard Michell , in He brought a bill before Parliament in for the incorporation of Magdalen Hall as Hertford College. Baring had been a Fellow of Brasenose College , and had offered a substantial endowment of fellowships and scholarships to that College, but it had been refused, as Brasenose rejected his conditions of restricting the funds to members of the Church of England.

Thus, Michell became the last principal of Magdalen Hall and the first principal of the refounded Hertford College. Also during this period, a gatehouse was built on the Catte Street frontage and the old doors were reinstalled there. A new dining hall was built above the gatehouse, and much of the northern side of the Old Quadrangle, apart from Old Hall, was rebuilt.

His energy, good connections and longevity created the modern College as it is today. In , Jackson began work on the Gatehouse, the Hall and its spiral staircase, and the north range of the Old Quad. By , he had completed a new Chapel, which he declared to be his favourite work. Cruttwell who was to become the fourth principal of the refounded college, , and later naming a number of odious characters after him. Starting from , Hertford made a special effort to encourage applicants from state schools through the Hertford Scheme established by Physics Fellow Neil Tanner, in which candidates were interviewed early, outside the standard application process, and could be offered a place at the College without having to sit the university entrance exam.

In memory of Warnock, the College has a student-accommodation building near Folly Bridge named after him. He also has a memorial in the Chapel, and a portrait behind High Table in the Hall. The site consists of three quadrangles: The College also has three large groups of buildings for student accommodation near Folly Bridge: In addition to these, the College owns a number of houses around Oxford.

Its entrance is the through the Gatehouse on Catte Street, directly opposite the main gates of the Bodleian Library. The Gatehouse is a late 19th-century building by Thomas Graham Jackson , bearing the image of a drinking hart above the archway. However, the wooden doors with their colourful floral decoration are the original gates of Hart Hall from the 17th century.

Through the Gatehouse, the quadrangle is laid out around a pleasant lawn with a few decorative trees. The lawn is off-limits during Michaelmas and Hilary terms but is accessible during Trinity term for sitting on at any time and croquet on Fridays and Sundays only. The Old Hall and its adjoining Buttery are now in regular use for dining, especially by the Fellows. Running southwards, along the eastern side of the quad, is a 17th-century building, with oriel windows tucked away on its southern end.

Today the building is mostly taken over by the Senior Common Room , with the northern ground-floor room being the Old Library. Originally, this occupied the entire corner, around to what was the chapel and is now the library. Its ante-chapel houses a stained-glass window depicting William Tyndale , made in for the British and Foreign Bible Society , and installed at Hertford in West of the Chapel is the Library, which was the previous chapel built in the 18th century by Newton.

The Library possesses many fine, antique books, most of which belonged to the library of Magdalen Hall. Hobbes prepared this work while at Magdalen Hall. The western side of the quad has the Gatehouse, with the Lodge, in its centre. In addition, the north-west building has access onto the Bridge of Sighs. Above the Gatehouse is the dining Hall, which is wood-panelled and hung with a number of College portraits. The northern side of the quad consists of a building by Jackson, much of which now houses the Bursary.

The Clarendon Building can be seen in the background. The north-western corner of New Quad is taken up by the Indian Institute building, which is not part of Hertford College. Most of the New Buildings are early 20th-century designs by Jackson, except the slightly later frontage onto Holywell Street, on the northern side of the quad.

The quad is entered through a gate onto Catte Street, just opposite the Clarendon Building. New Quad is mostly used for undergraduate accommodation. The most significant building in the quad is the Octagon, just north of the gate on Catte Street, which houses the Middle Common Room. It is the 16th-century Chapel of St Mary the Virgin at Smithgate, which formed a bastion in the town walls. An original carving of the scene of the Annunciation can be seen from Catte Street, just beside the gate.

Holywell Quad was built in , and is almost exclusively for first-year undergraduate housing. Hertford College - HW Quadrangle Student life[ edit ] Undergraduate students are accommodated for the full three or four years of their study, either on the main site or on college-owned property primarily in North Oxford and the Folly Bridge area.

Hertford is home to a college cat named Simpkin, who lives in the College Lodge and is the fourth of his lineage, collectively Simpkins, the collective noun for Hertford College cats; [14] the original was called Simpkin and was introduced by the former college principal Geoffrey Warnock , named after the cat in the Beatrix Potter novel The Tailor of Gloucester.
