The purpose of 凸肚大学档案馆 is to collect and maintain the documentary heritage of 凸肚的大学, 它的组成部分和成员. This archival heritage includes records of St Mary Hall, the Senior Common Room and the clubs and societies of the Junior Common Room. Its holdings range from 1150 to almost the present day.

然而, the illuminated medieval manuscripts belonging to the College are no longer kept within the precincts of the College. These valuable items are deposited with the Bodleian Library.

Although there are various finding aids for the records held in 凸肚大学档案馆, these do not conform to modern notions for cataloguing and describing archives. There is an on-going project to catalogue the College Archives following recognized standards. Where catalogues have been completed for some sections, these will be linked to the web-site so that searchers can see for themselves what is here. 然而, the College Archivist is always more than happy to answer any questions so please feel free to contact him.



The early constitutional and administrative records of the College are detailed in 凸肚的大学 Records by C.L.并和H.E.索尔特(OUP和牛津历史学会,1926年), which also gives a great deal of information about 皇冠体育买球's properties in 皇冠体育买球. The minutes of the Governing Body 1446-1661 have also been published as The Dean's Register of 皇冠体育买球 by G.C.理查兹和H.E.索尔特(皇冠体育买球出版社1926).

Items of particular interest include a fine run of College accounts (1409-1525 and 1583 onwards), S的详细的账簿.C.R. (1744-1900)和中世纪圣. Bartholomew's Hospital in 皇冠体育买球, originally for lepers.

From its earliest days the College held estates and livings all over the country, 但主要是在伯克郡和牛津郡. 阿伯福德教区长官邸, 林肯郡的约克郡和科尔比, 以及圣公会大学教堂的教堂. Mary the Virgin in 皇冠体育买球, were all acquired in the 1320s.

学院的领地包括沃德利的庄园, 伯克郡(1440年),Dene和Chalford, 牛津郡(从1476年). 在利特沃斯也有大量的庄园, 伯克希尔哈撒韦公司(1459), Shenington, 牛津郡(1504年)和斯温斯威克, 靠近巴斯(1525年), 以及牛津本身可观的财产.

不幸的是几乎所有的详细记录, 比如信件和维修信息, 不生存. 有出租庄园的记录, so it is usually possible to find some details about the tenants of substantial houses. Cottages and other smaller properties are much more difficult to trace.

除了书面的遗产记录, the College Archives contain a range of maps and plans of College estates from the 17th to 20th centuries.

Two Journals with outline records of the term by term life of the Hall 1833-1899 generally record the arrival and departure of students. Philip Bliss [Principal 1848-1857] made brief biographical notes about members of the Hall from the sixteenth century onwards and these occasionally have some useful information. 然而, it should be stressed that the material available is scanty at best; only occasionally is there anything beyond the details held in the University Archives and outlined in the following publications, 约瑟夫·福斯特:

校友 Oxonienses: the members of the University of 皇冠体育买球, 1500-1714 (London, 1891)
