Pembroke College, Cambridge University, Cambridgeshire


  • Located in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, East of England, England
  • Founded in the middle of the fourteenth century by the widow of the Earl of Pembroke
  • Cambridge University's third oldest college behind Peterhouse College, Cambridge University and Clare College, Cambridge University
  • 'The Foundress of the College was Mary de St Pol, daughter of Guy de Chatillon and the widow of Aymer de Valence, Earl of Pembroke. On Christmas Eve 1347 Edward III granted her the licence for the foundation. The original buildings comprised in a single court (now called First Court) all the component parts of a college - chapel, hall, kitchen and buttery, Master's lodgings, students' rooms - and the statutes provided for a manciple, a cook, a barber and a laundress. Both the founding of the College and the building of the chapel - the first college chapel in Cambridge - required the grant of a Papal Bull' (source: Pembroke College website, link provided)
