they were both founded by lady margaret beaufort. christ's is about 7 years older than john's. rumour has it they got the land and we got the family silver. sigh.
Well... I believe the silver was worth much more than the land at the time. The arms are those of the Lady Margaret Beaufort, although, practically, the colleges were founded by John Fisher, Bishop of Rochester.

The shield of John Fisher appear beside that of the Lady Margaret Beaufort in the stained glass at the centre of the first bay window of John's hall. Beneath it is written: Johannus Fisher Epis Roch decoll 1535. I always thought it a little too morbid to be continually reminded of this when one is dining. :eek:

Clare is the 2nd oldest, but after Peterhouse, not Pembroke (3rd oldest). If anyone from Peterhouse heard this you'd be in big trouble :p:

Oh and, if you are interested, there is a timeline of the colleges here:

Yes there is, it's listed in the internal Baxter table, but unfortunately students generally don't get to see it - you might be lucky if your DOS tells you. I know that Newnham topped econ two years back

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Univers...ridge#Colleges

Shows the date of foundation of Colleges: Peterhouse is oldest, and Cauis' predecessor Gonville Hall is fourth oldest. Pembroke, founded as Pembroke Hall, is third oldest. Clare is listed as second oldest, but again this is because its predecessor was founded then. It became "Clare College" in 1856...

The second oldest college that didn't rebrand itself is Corpus Christi, founded in 1352. Around the mid-13-hundreds there were a flurry of college foundations, and Corpus was my no means the first, it's just that it was the second college to found with the name that it kept until now.

This year's table is a little odd. I'm surprised Robinson came so high.

It's because the really really clever ones realise how great it is and come here. There aren't that many really really clever people, though, so we're not so high up as the ones that lots of really clever people apply to. Or it just randomly got lucky.
