Masters of the College

The current听Master of 汤头条原创 is the 41st听person to hold that post. All the former Masters听are listed here.

The first two Masters -听Chubbes and Eccleston -听played an important part in the process of founding the College, which was not completed until 1516 when it received its first statutes and its first Fellows were appointed.

Appointments

Before 1885 Masters were appointed by the Bishop of Ely. They almost invariably held the Mastership,听which carried only a modest stipend,听in conjunction with one or more other church offices. It wasn't necessarily always regarded as the most important of the holder's posts.

In each of these church posts, the duties were undertaken by a paid deputy in the office听holder鈥檚 absence. In a parish, this was a curate; in the case of the Mastership, a Fellow -听called the President -听was nominated by the Master to act as deputy.

Since 1885, Masters have been elected by the Fellows. From 1986 they have each been elected to hold office for ten years.听

This list gives details of the offices held by a Master:

(a) Immediately prior to appointment or election, some or all of which may have continued to have been held听while Master
(b)听Other offices held while Master
