INTRODUCTION

It was fortunate that when the archives of the English College at Douai were largely destroyed during the French Revolution the majority of the diaries of the College survived. For these diaries give an outline of the history of the College, and lists of the students who were trained for the priesthood there. There are gaps in these records, but the information which they provide is of the utmost value for the history of English Catholicism during penal times. Because of the importance of these diaries, the First and Second Diaries were chosen to inaugurate the series entitled "Records of the English Catholics under the Penal Laws" which the Fathers of the London Oratory planned in the 1870s. This first volume of Douai diary material was published in 1878. Thirty-three years later, in 1911, the Catholic Record Society published the Third, Fourth and Fifth Diaries in two volumes. Publication of the Seventh Diary was held up in the hope that the missing Sixth Diary would be found, but when this hope was unrealised the Seventh Diary was prepared for publication and eventually appeared in 1928. In the introduction to this volume the editor referred to the need to publish such diary and register material (including the Prefect of Studies Book, 1750-94) as still remained unedited; and now this work has been completed almost a century after the Oratory Fathers began the task. The most important item in the present volume is the Prefect of Studies Book referred to above. This manuscript provides a complete list of those at the College during the last period of its existence. It is supplemented by the diary of Henry Tichborne Blount which covers the years from 1770 until 1781. The next most important item is the diary of Edward Dicconson which provides information about the early years of the eighteenth century when the College was under attack because of the alleged Jansenist tendencies of its professors. Various lists of the 1660s and 1670s provide material for the history of the College when there is little else available. A fragmentary diary of 1639-43 adds a few details to what is already known from the Fourth Diary. A list of members of the College in 1738 is useful because the Seventh Diary lacks such lists for the period from 1738 to 1746. Finally there is a list of Provosts and Deans of the College from about 1718 to 1774. The previously published diaries cover the following years: 1575-93 (Second Diary); 1598-1633 (Third Diary); 1641-7 (Fourth Diary); 1647-54 (Fifth Diary); the years 1676-92 were dealt with by ix

INTRODUCTION

the Sixth Diary which has been lost; 1715-54 (Seventh Diary-which also has brief notes for the years 1689-1715 and 1755- 78). (It may be noted that the First Diary is not really a diary, but a brief account of the foundation of Douai College in 1568, followed by a list of students ordained from 1573 to 1632 and a list of priests sent on the English Mission from 1574 to 1644.) The material printed in the present volume relates to the following years: 1639-43 (fragmentary diary); 1660-79 (various lists); 1704-7 and 1714 (Dicconson's diary); c. 1718-74 (list of Provosts and Deans) 1738-52 (a list of persons at the College in 1738 and of arrivals there from 1738 until 1752); 1750-94 (Prefect of Studies Book); 1770-81 (Tichborne Blount's diary).

In 1945 Father Nicholas Kelly, who was then on the staff of St. Edmund's College, began to prepare for publication the Prefect of Studies Book, the constitutions, and some early seventeenth century rules of Douai College. He did a great deal of work in transcribing

these documents, and he had translations of the constitutions and of the rules prepared. Unfortunately he suffered a long illness in 1947 and 1948, and this held up his editorial work. Further difficulties arose because his duties at the College became increasingly timeconsuming; and his subsequent transfer to parochial work resulted in him having even less time to devote to the projected volume. In the mid-1960s the editors of the Catholic Record Society gave some thought to the matter and came to the conclusion that it would be desirable to devote this volume to completing the publication of all the remaining known diary and register material relating to Douai College, and to hold over the constitutions and rules for a later volume. This suggestion was put to Father Kelly and in the course of discussion it emerged that his pastoral duties would make It very difficult for him to complete the editing of the projected volume. I was then asked to take on the editorial work, and Father Kelly with the greatest generosity handed over his transcripts of the Prefect of Studies Book, the constitutions and the rules of Douai College, and the translations which he had had prepared of the latter items. As instructed by the Council of the Catholic Record Society I have taken the Prefect of Studies Book as the backbone of this volume, and added to it the material specified earlier in this introduction. Since the greatest importance of this volume lies in the information which it provides concerning Douai College in the second half of the eighteenth century I have thought it desirable to add an appendix of brief biographical notes of priests connected with Douai College between 1750 and 1794. It may be of assistance to the reader to point out that a sketch of the life lived at Douai College and of the course of studies pursued there is to be found in the long introduction which precedes the edition of the Prefect of Studies Book (pp. 132-57.) In editing these documents abbreviations (where their meaning IS certain) have been expanded, except in the case of titles and Christian names. Punctuation has in general been modernised. The fact that a proportion of the documents printed in this volume are in Latin presented a problem. It is becoming normal practice nowadays to provide translations of all Latin passages; but to have done so in the case of this volume would have increased its bulk considerably, and seemed unnecessary in view of the fact that in most cases the Latin consists of short phrases, single words, or repetitive diary entries, the meaning of which is easily ascertained. Translations have however been provided of two extensive Latin passages in the Prefect of Studies Book. An editor's final, and most pleasant task, is to thank all those who have helped in preparing a volume. The late Father Alphonsus Bonnar, O.F.M. provided a transcript of the 1639-43 diary, and Madame Duhamel of the Bibliotheque Municipale of Douai arranged for the making of a microfilm of the manuscript itself.

INTRODUCTION

Father Godfrey Anstruther, O.P. drew my attention to the documents of the 1660s and 1670s which are to be found in Rome. Father David Milburn, Vice-President of Ushaw College, sent me Xerox copies of Dicconson's diary and Father Thomas Croghan of Chorley lent me the original manuscript of the list dated 1679. Father Peter Doyle of Upholland College told me of the existence of the list of eighteenth century provosts and deans. The President of St. Edmund's College kindly deposited the Prefect of Studies Book and four other related manuscripts in the British Museum for a considerable period in order to facilitate my work. Father W. Vincent Smith of Lanchester, county Durham, lent me his copy of the rare 1690 edition of the constitutions of Douai College. Mrs. Lorna Arnold undertook the labour of correcting my translations of two Latin passages in the Prefect of Studies Book. Miss Elizabeth Poyser, archivist to the Archbishop of Westminster and Father Michael Richards of St. Edmund's College were most helpful, as was Mr. A. F. Allison who first suggested that I should undertake this task. A debt of gratitude is also due to the owners of the various manuscripts printed in this volume. But above all I wish to express my thanks to Father Nicholas Kelly whose work formed the foundation upon which this volume was constructed. I very much hope that at some future date his work upon the constitutions and rules of Douai College will be pu bIished. P. R. Harris


A DOUAI DIARY 1639-43.

The manuscript of this diary is in the Bibliotheque Municipale de Douai (MS. 898). It was transcribed by Father Alphonsus Bonnar, O.F.ÂĽ., in 1930, and he presented to the Catholic Record Society the transcript upon which the present edition is based. This transcript has been collated with a microfilm of the manuscript which Madame Duhamel, Conservateur of the Bibliotheque Municipale de Douai kindly provided in 1970. When he was searching for records of the seventeenth century Franciscan martyrs Father Bonnar noticed an entry for this manuscript in the Catalogues des Manuscrits des Bibliotheques Publiques. Tome VI: Douai (Paris, 1878), where it is described as "Notes relatives au Couvent des Recollects Anglais de Douai 1639-1643". A similar description (apparently in a nineteenth century hand) appears on the fly-leaf of the manuscript; but in fact, as Father Bonnar immediately realised when he saw the manuscript itself, the diary concerns not the English Franciscans, but the English College of the secular clergy. With the permission of the Douai librarian he added the following note to the volume: " Hoc Diarium minime Recollectorum Anglorum diurnales notitias conti net sed bene Collegii Duaceni Anglorum a clero saeculari". Father Bonnar read a paper on the diary to the 29th Annual General Meeting of the Catholic Record Society held in July 1933, and this paper was printed in the transactions of that meeting. Most of the following description is taken from Father Bonnar's paper. Each page of the diary is ruled so as to make a border all the way round, and the whole page is ruled horizontally between the two vertical rulings. One page is allotted to each day of the year so that events relating to different years were to be entered on the same page. In this respect of course this diary differs from the other DOllai Diaries because they consist of continuous day-to-day narratives. Their compilers did not therefore have to worry about lack of space as the compilers of the 1639-43 diary would have had to do if they had not abandoned the project at the end of 1643. The earliest entry is for 12 August 1639 and the last is dated 17 December 1643. The earliest entry in the Fourth Douai Diary is dated 4 January 1642, so the diary printed here covers the 2-!- years preceding the opening of the Fourth Douai Diary. But it only contains seven entries for 1639, one for 1640 and three for 1641. For 1642 it contains 25 entries and for 1643, 15; the Fourth Douai Diary, which overlaps with it for these two years, contains 32 entries for 1

DOU AI COLLEGE DOCUMENTS

1642 and 15 for 1643. It must therefore be confessed that the diary printed here adds little to what we already know from the Fourth Diary; but the two diaries often differ in the amount of material which they contain about a particular event. It was Father Bonnar's opinion that the diary printed here was commenced in 1639 but badly kept because of the unsettled state of the College. The handwriting of the diary indicates that when Edmund Ireland arrived as Procurator in October 1641 he continued it. Finding however that the scheme of allotting one page to each day of the year presented insuperable problems of space, he abandoned this diary and began what we now call the Fourth Diary. In this edition the entries in the diary have been rearranged in chronological order from 12 August 1639 to 17 December 1643. In the manuscript, as has been stated above, the entries are arranged from] January to 31 December, with the possibility that events of different years might appear on the same page. Thus the first entry in the manuscript (on f. 4 v) is for 4 January 1642; and on f. 117 v, under the date 18 August, appear two entries for 1639 and one for another year (probably 1642). The manuscript contains two loose papers which have not been printed here because they do not relate to the period covered by the diary, and because one is of little importance and the other is almost impossible to read. The first item is a letter from Margaret Walmesley to her son John concerning his removal to Douai in order to commence Logic. He was presumably at st. Omers College since there is a reference to "Father Rector", and Father Bonnar suggested that if the Margaret Walmesley in question was the one referred to in the footnote to page 149 of the Seventh Douai Diary her son probably entered Douai College between 1690 and 1710. The letter refers to him travelling with Mr. Massey who was "designed for the same place". Perhaps this was John Massey who took the oath at Douai in September 1692, according to the Seventh Douai Diary. The second item consists of a list of names and sums of money. Since one of the names mentioned is that of Bishop Giffard, the list must date from 1688 or later since Giffard was consecrated Bishop in that year. Father Bonnar rightly describes the handwriting as " an impossible scrawl".

George Muscott vere Fisher began his studies at Douai, but was sent to Rome in Sept. 1601. He was ordained there and in June 1607 he returned to Douai. In July 1608 he was sent on the Mission. He spent more than twenty years in prison and was a prisoner when he was appointed President of Douai in May 1641. Queen Henrietta Maria secured his release and he arrived at Douai in Nov. 1641. He died in Dec. 1645. (Ibid., 15, 35, 83, 93, 470, 483.) In Oct. 1641 Edmund Busquel was described as "oIim CoIIegii emptor". (Ibid., 428.) Edward Fitzherbert vere Fettiplace arrived at Douai in July 1623 and entered Grammar. In May 1628 he defended Philosophy and in June 1629 he went to England for a time.

George Parsons died on 3 Nov. 1644. He had lived in the College for about eighteen months. In April 1603 he had brought to the College news of the death of Queen Elizabeth. (3rd-5th D.D., 49, 445.)


DOUAI COLLEGE LISTS, 1660-79.

These ten lists are important because the second half of the seventeenth century is the blankest period in the history of Douai College. The Fifth Diary ended on 25 April 1654. 1 When Robert Witham, President of the College, was searching for records of its history in 1725, he could find almost nothing from 1654 until the Sixth Diary began in 1676.2 The Sixth Diary covered the years from 1676 to 1692; but unfortunately it cannot now be traced. The Seventh Diary which began in 1715, is preceded by a very brief summary covering the years 1689 to 1715, compiled in 1720. 3 But the total amount of information for the sixty years from 1654 until 1715 is very small. The first six of the following documents (relating to the period from 1660 until 1667) are from the archives of the Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith (Propaganda)-they are to be found in volume 373. Father Godfrey Anstruther, O.P. kindly provided notes relating to them, and the full transcripts which follow have been derived from a microfilm. Of the remaining four lists, two are from the Barberini collection in the Vatican Library (volumes 2693 and 8623), one is in the archives of the Archbishop of Westminster (volume A. 34), and one is in the archives of the parish ofSt. Gregory, Weld Bank, Chorley, Lancashire. It should be noted that the word "nobilis" which frequently occurs in these lists, does not usually mean of noble birth, but rather of gentle birth.

This catalogue of those at Douai College on 12 November 1661 occurs on ff. 18 and 19 of volume 373 of the archives of Propaganda. There is a duplicate on ff. 28 and 29. Of the 81 persons at Douai in November 1661, 40 were supported by College funds (of whom 30 had taken the College oath) and 41 were convictors whose expenses were met by their family or by friends. Of the former group 7 were Seniors, 4 Professors of the Humanities, 15 students of Theology, 9 students of Philosophy, 3 Poets and 2 Syntaxians. Of the convictors, 1 was a Theologian, 9 Philosophers, 6 Rhetoricians, 4 Poets, 10 Syntaxians (or perhaps 9, since it is not clear if Robert Fenwicke (no. 60) was in Syntax or in Grammar), and 11 (or 12) Grammarians. Altogether there were 7 Seniors, 4 Professors, 16 Theologians, 18 Philosophers, 6 Rhetoricians, 7 Poets, 12 Syntaxians and 11 Grammarians. The note at the end of this document that 42 alumni had been ordained during the period between George Leyburne's arrival at Douai as President in December 1652 and the date of this document (November 1661) gives an average of 4¡66 ordinations each year.

Nicholas Postgate alias Whitmore and Watson arrived at Douai in July 1621, was ordained on 20 March 1628, and left for the Mission on 29 June 1630. He was martyred in ] 679. (3rd-5th D.D., 185, 265, 283.)


F.

1666-7.

This document occuples if. 84 and 85 of volume 373 of the archives of Propaganda. The first item is a list of persons who took the oath at Douai College on 25 March 1666. This duplicates the list given on f. 57, printed above, but it was presumably written later than the list on f. 57 since in some cases it states that an alumnus is in a higher school (e.g. Charles Shepherd is stated in this document to be in Dialectic, i.e. the first year of the Philosophy course; on f. 57 he is said to be in Rhetoric). The second item is a list of those who took the oath on 15 August 1667. Then follows a list of priests ready to go on the Mission, and a list of priests who had left in June 1667. Finally there is a statement about Thomas Shepherd and Edward Lutton who had quarrelled with the President, George Leyburne, about the teaching of Thomas White alias Blacklow.

1. Thomas Shippardus,4 Collegii Vallesoletani in Hispania alumnus; hic 4 abhinc annis Duacum ex Anglia venit Duaceni Collegii

Praesidi commendatus, qui inscius, et minime opinans quod Albii factioni faveret eique adhaeret, benigne hominem excepit, permisitque ut Lectionem Secundariam in schola Theologiae doceret, atque postea eundem Shippardum substituit in locum primarii Confessarii summae integritatis viri, qui e vita paulo ante excesserat. Hic se gerens Confessarium Collegii contra sui muneris rationem, quod est pacem promovere, magnae perturbationis et factionis concitator et stimulator extitit; et enim non solum ipsemet recusavit cum Praeside concurrere ad exhortandum capitulares sacerdotes in Anglia ut quoad spirituale CIeri regimen suae Sanctitatis voluntati se penitus subiicerent: item non solum negavit imemoratae schedulae subscribere, verum etiam mordicus sustinuit quod neutram in partem concurrere tutam conscientiam liceret, atque ut in hanc suam sententiam concurrerent plures Collegii alumnos induxit et seduxit, sed a malis huius hominibus conatibus, cum non sit alumnus, Praeses sua propria auctoritate se expedire potest. The Liber Ruber of the English College, Rome records no William Harrison. There is mention of Mathew Harrison who was admitted in 1662, ordained in April 1665 and left in Jan. 1666. But he came from Lancashire, not from the diocese of Lichfield. (C.R.S., vol. 40, no. 952.) 3 Thomas Vitus or White was aged 19 and a B.A. of Cambridge when he arrived at the English College, Rome in July 1662. He was ordained in March 1666 and left in April 1666. The Liber Ruber states that he died a few years later. (C.R.S., vol. 55, 593; C.R.S., vol. 40, no. 963.) â&#x20AC;˘ Thomas Shepherd alias Coldham was Professor of Theology at Douai from 1664 to 1667. He left in 1668 after quarrelling with the President. He died between 1694 and 1703. (3rd-5th D.D., 539; Kirk, 207-8.) There is no mention of Shepherd in the published records of Valladolid. (C.R.S. , vol. 30.) 2

[f. 85 v.] Igitur Praeses, ut periclitanti animae consuleret iterum hominem in Collegium admisit, permisitque ut in eodem CoUegio spatio 3 annorum humaniores literas doceret, eumque ab uno anno cum medio secundarium Collegii Confessarium, necnon procuratorem constituit, hie in suam Sanctitatem et Praesidem eiusdem Suae Sanctitatis ministrum ingratus, cum commemorato Thoma Shippardo conspiravit ad resistendum piis Praesidis conatibus quos nimirum pro concordiae conciliandae desiderio accensus, paraverat.

This catalogue of those at Douai College in June 1668 occupies if. 110 and III of volume 2693 of the Barberini collection of Latin manuscripts in the Vatican Library. It has been transcribed from a microfilm. Of those at Douai in June 1668, 33 were supported by College funds, while 55 were convictors who were paid for by relatives Qr friends . Of the first group, 8 were Seniors, 5 Professors of the Humanities, 9 students of Theology (on the assumption that the Prefects of the Infirmary, of the Kitchen, of the Library, and of the Wardrobe were all studying Theology), 6 students of Philosophy, 2 Poets and 3 Grammarians. Of the convictors 3 were Theologians, 7 Philosophers, 7 Rhetoricians, 5 Poets, 12 Syntaxians, 4 Grammarians and 17 Figuristians. Altogether there were 8 Seniors, 5 Professors, 12 Theologians, 13 Philosophers, 7 Rhetoricians, 7 Poets, 12 Syntaxians, 7 Grammarians and 17 Figuristians. This gives a total of 88, which with 7 servants makes 95 (although the heading of this document refers to a total of 96).

(Ibid.; Kirk, 163.) 9 This was probably John Lodge vere Baites who in 1692 was aged about 40, and had been on the Mission for 15 or 16 years. He was then at Carlton, Yorkshire. (G.R.S., vol. 9, 112.) 10 Francis Hodgson worked in Yorkshire and in 1692 he was aged about 40 and had been on the Mission for 17 or 18 years. He died in 1726.

1674.

This document describing the condition of Douai College in January 1674 occupies pp. 147-163 (item no. 41) of volume A. 34 of the archives of the Archbishop of Westminster. There is an abridged copy of it on pp. 235-248 (item no. 62) which gives the year as 1673/4. In January 1674 there were 122 persons at Douai, of whom six were servants. There were 9 Seniors (including the President), 5 other priests, 5 Professors of the Humanities, 14 students of Theology, 8 second year students of Philosophy, 10 first year Philosophers (Logicians), 7 Rhetoricians, 11 Poets, 13 Syntaxians, 17 Grammarians and 17 Figuristians. Of these persons, 36 were supported by College funds (as well as the six servants), while 79 were convictors whose expenses were met by relatives or by friends (see infra p. 143-5). This gives a total of 121-presumably the President made up the total of 122. The list of those at the College is followed by various financial accounts, which are calculated in livres, sols (20 sols equalled one livre) and quarters of sols. (ÂŁ1 sterling equalled 10 livres-see infra p. 55.) The first of these accounts is a statement of provisions (food, clothing and fuel) in stock. There follows a list of the convictors who were in arrears with their payments (or pensions), a list of moneys owed to the infirmary account, and the amount of pensions owed by scholars who had left. The final item on the credit side is a statement of moneys in hand, and in the possession of the College's correspondents elsewhere. The debits begin with a statement of payments made in advance by various scholars, followed by a list of moneys due to scholars and staff for their private expenses. The final item on the debit side is a list of the sums owed to various tradesmen. The total credits amounted to livres 42504-0-1, while the debts totalled livres 10452-13-2, thus showing that the College was in the black to the extent of livres 32051-6-3.

1676.

The original manuscript of this account of Douai College in March 1676 is in the archives of the church of St. Gregory, Weld Bank,

Chorley, Lancashire. The parish priest, Father Thomas Croghan, kindly loaned it so that this transcript could be made. There is a copy of this document at U shaw College, and another in the archives of the Catholic Record Society; both these copies were apparently made towards the end of the last century. The total number at Douai in March 1676 was 110, of whom five were servants. There were 9 Seniors (including the President), 10 priests and Professors of the Humanities (the manuscript gives a figure of 11, but the name ofone person-Manering-has been deleted), 7 students of Theology, 8 second year students of Philosophy, 9 first year Philosophers (Logicians), 9 Rhetoricians, 14 Poets, 13 Syntaxians, 15 Grammarians and 11 Figuristians. Of these 105 persons, 31 were supported by College funds, while 74 were convictors whose relatives or friends met their expenses. The list of those at the College is followed by the same sort of accounts as appear in the 1674 document (see supra, p. 46). These show that in March 1676 the College had a credit balance of livres 38349-19-2. The final item in the manuscript is a brief statement of the finances of the College in February 1678. This shows a credit balance of livres 33924-19-0.

This document occurs on f. 182 of volume 8623 of the Barberini collection of Latin manuscripts in the Vatican Library. The transscript has been prepared from a microfilm. This protest against certain of the clergy in England who seemed inclined to accept the Oath of Supremacy, is interesting to students of Douai College because it was signed by the priests and alumni at the college in May 1679. The copyist made some mistakes with the names (e.g. Curlese for Curtis, and Serlliams for Williams).

EDWARD DICCONSON'S DOVAI DIARY, 1704-7, 1714.

The manuscript of this diary is in the collections of U sha w College (Ushaw Manuscripts, volume 1, no. 60-pp. 181-202). It is only a fragment of the original, and even the pages which remain are often damaged and portions are impossible to decipher. But it is important because it provides details of that period in the history of Douai College before the College diary was recommenced in 1715 by Dr. Witham. (Since the Sixth Diary, which covered the years 1676-92 has been lost, there is no full diary available from 1654 when the Fifth Diary ended, until 1715.) The Dicconson diary is also very important because of the light which it throws upon the troubles which the College experienced as a result of the false accusation of Jansenism which was levied against it. The extant portions of the diary cover the following dates: 15 July 1704-27 October 1704 18 January 1705-25 November 1705 7 July 1706-16 December 1706 4 February 1707-23 March 1707 21 July 1714-1 October 1714. It was much used by John Kirk in the early nineteenth century when he was working on his projected continuation of Dodd's Church History; this was never completed but the biographical section was published by J. H . Pollen and E. Burton in 1909 under the title Biographies of English Catholics in the Eighteenth Century. Joseph Gillow also used the diary when preparing his Literary and Biographical History, or Bibliographical Dictionary of the English Catholics (1885-1902). The 1714 section was used by E. Burton in his Life and Times of Bishop Challoner (1909-volume 1, pp. 37-8). Most of the diary was printed by E. Bonney in volume 13 (1903) of the Ushaw Magazine (pp. 287-313). Father Bonney however thought it prudent to omit two passages of considerable length and some shorter portions, which contain bitter remarks about the Jesuits-as he wrote (p. 288): "In those days they cared too much for the reality, to think of the phrase in which it was wrapped, and the pen's bitterness was too often a calumny of the feelings that prompted it". The passages in question appear under the following dates: 19 October 1705 13 October 1706 2 November 1706 72

21 February 1707 23 March 1707. The present edition of the diary is based upon a transcript presented to the Catholic Record Society by Father W. Vincent Smith in 1949. This transcript has been collated with Father Bonney's edition, and with Xeroxes of the original, kindly provided by Father David Milburn, Vice-President of Ushaw College. The manuscript has deteriorated since Father Bonney transcribed it in the first years of this century and words which can no longer be read in the original appear in his edition.

Edward Dicconson. The author of the diary, Edward Dicconson,l was born on 30 November 1670, o.s., the third son of Hugh Dicconson of Wrightington Hall, near Wigan, and Agnes Kirkby, of Kirkby, Lancashire. .He studied at Douai, and after finishing Philosophy in 1691 he spent some time in England. He took the oath at Douai on 8 March 1699, and soon after ordination he succeeded Nicholas Leyburne as Procurator when the latter died in 1701. He remained Procurator until 1708, when he began teaching Humanities. He became Professor of Philosophy in October 1711, and in October 1713 he became Professor of Theology and Vice-President. He took charge of Douai between the death of Edward Paston, the eleventh President, on 21 July 1714 and the arrival of the new President, Robert Witham, on 28 October 1715. He remained Vice-President and Professor of Theology until he left for the English Mission in August 1720. He spent the period from December 1719 until July 1720 in Paris, dealing with the investment of the Douai College funds there. It was hoped to benefit from the boom in the shares of John Law's Mississippi Company, but nothing came of this plan. When Dicconson left Douai in August 1720 he became chaplain to Peter Giffard at Chillington, Staffordshire. He remained there for several years and became principal adviser to Bishop John Stonor of the Midland District. In 1721 he was proposed for the coadjutorship of the London District. He was then described as having been for "many years Vice-President of Douay, and a man of learning, application to business, and much dexterity in the management of affairs. He had not, however, been very successful in the economy of the Douay Seminary, and he had an impediment in his tongue, which made the practice of preaching difficult to him. He was a wise man and of singular merit".2 Neither on this occasion, nor in 1723 when Bishop George Witham of the Northern District wished to have him as coadjutor was Dicconson raised to the episcopate. But in 1740 he was appointed to succeed Bishop Dominic Williams as Vicar Apostolic of the Northern District. 1 2

He was at the time in Rome where he had been assisting the Reverend Laurence Mayes, the Clergy Agent, in negotiations concerning the English Franciscans, and concerning the English College at Rome. On his way home he visited Douai College, and was consecrated Bishop of MalIa at Ghent on 19 March 1741. On arriving in his Vicariate he did not follow the example of his predecessors in the Northern District and live in Northumberland or Yorkshire; he established his headquarters in his native county of Lancashire; and settled at a place belonging to his family named Finch Mill, near W rightington. He was at the time of his appointment over seventy years old and the laborious duties of his post must have been a great burden to him. By 1750 he was so infirm that Francis Petre was appointed his coadjutor, and on 24 April 1752 o.s. he died at Finch Mill aged 82. He was buried in the family vault in the parish church of Standish near Wigan. Jansenism. In Dicconson's diary there are several passages dealing with the accusations of Jansenist tendencies which were levied against Douai College in the early years of the eighteenth century. To put these matters into perspective, and to understand various references in the diary itself, it is necessary to sketch briefly the history of J ansenism. 3 Cornelius Otto Jansen (1585- 1638), who became Bishop of Ypres in 1636, became deeply interested in the problems of grace, and made a profound study of St. Augustine'S ideas on the subject. He wrote a large treatise on the matter to which he gave the title Augustinus, and which was published by his friends in 1640, after his death. One of his closest friends and collaborators was Jean Duvergier de Hauranne (1581-1643), Abbe of St. Cyran. The first generation of French Jansenists were all disciples of St. Cyran. Prominent among these were members of the family of Arnauld of Andilly, especially Mere Angelique Arnauld, Abbess of Port Royal, and Antoine Arnauld who succeeded St. Cyran as leader of the movement. Already the Augustinus had been condemned by the Inquisition in 1641, and in June 1643 Urban VIII attacked it in his Bull "In eminenti". The book was accused of renewing the errors of Baius and of Calvin and of removing all reality from free will. These condemnations were however only in general terms, and had little effect. Arnauld's work entitled De lafrequente communion (1643) and his attack (written in collaboration with F. Hallier) entitled La Theologie morale des Jesuites (1643) advanced the Jansenist cause. As the Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church says, the unifying characteristic of the Jansenist movement was antagonism to the Jesuits; this was best exhibited in Pascal's Lettres provinciales (1656-7). 3

For the general history of Jansenism see the articles in the original (1907-14) and new (1967) editions of the Catholic Encyclopedia, and in the Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church, ed. by F. L. Cross (1963).


DICCONSON'S DIARY, 1704

The spread of Jansenism led in 1649 to the submission of certain propositions to the Paris Theological Faculty for their judgment. Although no reference was made to Jansen it was well understood that his doctrines were the object of the attack. The five propositions can be summarised as follows: 1. Without special grace from God man cannot obey His commandments. 2. In the state of fallen nature, no-one can resist grace. The matter was referred to the general assembly of the French clergy in 1650, and it was decided that the question should be referred to Rome. On 31 May 1653 the Bull "Cum occasione" was issued condemning the five propositions. The J ansenists tried to evade the condemnation by distinguishing between droit (law) and fait (fact). They argued that although the five propositi~:ms were heretical (droit) they were not in fact (fait) to be found in the Augustinus. In October 1656 in the Bull "Ad sanctam beati Petri sed em" Alexander VII stated: "We declare and define that the five propositions have been drawn from the book of Jansenius entitled Augustinus, and that they have been condemned in the sense of the same Jansenius, and we once more condemn them as such". Unsuccessful attempts were made to force the Jansenists to sign a formulary embodying the Papal condemnation. The nuns of Port Royal were particularly obstinate and the Archbishop of Paris debarred them from the sacraments in consequence. Four bishops openly allied themselves with the rebels-Henri Arnauld of Angers, Buzenval of Beauvais, Caulet of Pamiers and PavilIon of Aleth. In February 1664 Alexander VII issued a new constitution entitled "Regiminis Apostolici" ordering all ecclesiastics to subscribe to the anti-Jansenist formulary. StilI the resistance continued, and the four bishops, when communicating "Regiminis Apostolici" to their dioceses, explicitly maintained the distinction between droit and fait. In the midst of the troubles which ensued Alexander VII died on 22 May 1667. His successor, Clement IX, decided to be conciliatory and a compromise was arranged. The four bishops agreed to republish "Regiminis Apostolici" and to have the formulary signed in their dioceses. The pope consented to having the signatures placed below explanations distinguishing between fait and droit. This "Peace of Clement IX" was ratified by a Papal brief of January 1669. The Port Royal nuns were freed from restraint and Jansenism continued to gain support for the remainder of the seventeenth century, despite the fact that Antoine Arnauld was forced to leave France in 1679 and settle in the Low Countries (where he died in 1694). He had been joined in 1685 by Pasquier Quesnel who had been expelled from the French Oratory because of his Jansenism. Quesnel succeeded Arnauld as leader of the Jansenists, and his book entitled

Le Nouveau Testament . . . avec des reflexions morales (1693-an amended version of a work first published in 1674) led to a renewed attack on Jansenism, which culminated in the Bull "Unigenitus" of 1713. Matters were exacerbated by the dispute regarding the case of conscience which began in 1701. The point at issue was whether absolution might be given to a cleric who declared that he agreed with certain Jansenist opinions, especially that claiming that a person was entitled to maintain a respectful silence as to whether in fact (fait) the condemned propositions were to be found in Jansen's work. Forty doctors of the Sorbonne (some of great renown) decided that absolution could be given in such circumstances. In 1703 Clement XI condemned this decision. The Paris doctors, with one exception, retracted but the Jansenists still remained obstinate. At the request of the kings of France and of Spain Clement XI issued in July 1705 his Bull "Vineam Domini" in which he stated that respectful silence was not sufficient to conform with the decisions of his predecessors concerning the five propositions. The nuns of Port Royal refused to accept "Vineam Domini" and their convent was suppressed as a result. Attention was also called to the fact that Quesnel's book (Reflexions morales) was strongly Jansenist, and set forth the condemned theories of the irresistible efficaciousness of grace, and the limitations of God's will with regard to the salvation of men. Various French bishops attacked the book, and in 1708 Clement XI proscribed it in his brief entitled "Universi dominici". The Archbishop of Paris, de Noailles, had at an earlier date (without sufficient investigation) approved the book, and so he was reluctant to join in the attack on it. Louis XIV therefore asked the Pope to settle the matter finally. This produced the Bull "Unigenitus" (September 1713) which condemned 101 propositions taken from the Reflexions morales and chosen to sum up Jansenist teaching. Jansenism and Douai College. The decline of Jansenism from 1713 onwards' does not concern us here since Dicconson's diary ends in 1714. But it is necessary to say something of the attacks on the English College of Douai because of the alleged Jansenist tendencies of some of its professors. 4 These troubles, with which Dicconson's diary is much concerned, began in 1702 when Dr. Edward Hawarden, the Vice-Presiden t of the English College, won a competition for a chair of theology at the University of Douai. Hawarden (1662-1735) was a very able theologian and had incurred the enmity of certain members of the university (and especially that of the vice-chancellor, Adrian 4

Delcourt) by defeating them in disputations. They therefore campaigned against his appointment and succeeded in having it set aside. Rumours were then spread that Dr. Hawarden was teaching Jansenist theories in the English College. Dictates, or written versions of his lectures, were surrendered by him in 1704 for examination, and these were found to contain no evidence of Jansenism. Nevertheless the attacks on him continued, largely as the result of the intrigues of a discontented student, Augustine Newdigate Poyntz, who was dismissed from Douai College in 1704. As the diary shows, Dicconson and other members of the College were convinced that these attacks were supported, if not instigated, by the Jesuits. In 1707 Giovanni Battista Bussi, the Nuncio at Cologne, and a leading anti-Jansenist, sent a note to Rome denouncing the Douai professors (and especially Hawarden) as being secret Jansenists, and hinting that the Vicars Apostolic in England sympathised with Jansenism. In August 1707 Hawarden left for the English Mission,5 and it was hoped that as a result the College's enemies would abandon their attacks. On the contrary, they claimed that Hawarden had fled from Douai because he was afraid of being brought to account, and so it was decided in Rome that a visitation should be held to probe the matter fully. The avowed enemy of the College, Adrian Delcourt, was one of the Visitors appointed, but Dicconson managed to have the appointment annulled. The Visitors who then undertook the investigation (they were two canons of Malines) completely exonerated the College from any suspicion of Jansenism. 6 As will be seen from the final surviving entry in Dicconson's diary, in October 1714 Richard Kendall and Dicconson, the Professors of Theology, "readily assented" to Delcourt's request that they should sign a document accepting the Bull "Unigenitus" .

Warily (here Horton)l1 deffended under Mr. Mayes and in the afternoon Mr. Hen. Allen12 : both did well. In the afternoon upon a dispute of the infallibility of the Church, Mr. Mayes did with a great deal of zeal defend that the Church could possibly mistake in mixt facts "secundum id quod est facti non revelati", which is the thing the Jesuits and their adherents now can't suffer by reason of the question of fact in Jansenius's affair. 13 Monday, 28. The Ronble Henry Howard14 did in the afternoon deffend universal philosophy (he is second brother to Thomas, now Duke of N orfolk),15 under .Mr. Lau.

Doing the like after noon also Monsr. Dr. Delcourt,22 the Jesuits' champion, made a kind of a speech against Mr. Mayes when at the end he was to argue: blaming the friars for deffending so weekly what he foolishly called a point of faith and citing his own declaration which he had published by a detestable forgery in the name of the Divinity faculty on the 10th February 1704. Mr. Mayes had the moderation not to speak one word or interrupt him but let him quietly say his lesson to the end (for he had got it off book): replying nothing. Spanish flies (cantharides vesicatoria) when dried produce a drug which is used externally as a vesicant, or internally as a diuretic.

Tuesday, 13. Mr. President gave his feast as usually. Monday, 19. This day John Newton, here Breylsford, second son to Mr. Jo. Newton of lrnham, Lincolnshire, went to Liege to his brother (the elder), a Jesuit,128 who had long sollicited the father to get him away from this place (as I found by some letters of his I had opened). The design was that he should learn there arithmatick and perhaps some little of mathematicks. But the principal end and ad majorem Dei gloriam was to get him from this house, that being the great aim of our good friends the Padri,129 to rob us of people. Nevertheless it pleases God to give us a sufficient plenty of mighty hopeful yong men. Monday, 26. The new house of office being made, the old one began this day to be emptyed and in a few days was so ordered that a descent being made and a window to it, and it all plastered with cendrez it became in less than 3 weeks a very pretty larder and fit to put the meat and all things necessary in to it. Which was done. November, 1705. Tuesday, 3. This day John Bury who had gone against his will to the monks on the 12 September last, came again to the Colledge. During his absence I had advice from Mr. Hodgeson that he might stay here if he pleased and that the Lady Swinburn would pay for him. This I told him not till he was with me and sayed he would not stay with the monks, because there was no opportunities nor masters for improvement, nor no orders kept. So that he was overjoyed when I told him he might return, which he did, and behaves himselfe since most extraordinary well. He is a very good yong man. Wednesday, 25. About this time I struck down the seperation walls which made the passage to the house of office and seperated the refectory from the buttery and kitchin and enlarged the sayd places by so much, and began to raise the floors of the sayd places to have a fall of water to the street by the back way, by means of the new sink made in the seminary of Hannyn's130 garden. 23.

Phil. will make a mighty worthy and honest gentleman. But the other to a much more high and aspiring spirit will add that industry and qualitys which will make him a shrewd man in the affairs of the world, provided God Almighty's grace keep them from falling into the debaucherys of the world. The same day went with them to Paris, Mr. Laurence Mayes and Mr. Francis Tyrwhit, here Thomson, both designing for Rome, the later [sic] making thither a voyage of curiosity, the first to be there agent for the whole English clergy; for which end besides the charges of his journey thither the Bishops in England do allow him £100 sterling per annum, his annuity from his brother of £30 or £40 being therein comprised.

He got out of the town just at the shutting of the gates and lay at a cabaret on this side the bridge of Rache,135 and thence marched about 6 of the clock next morning for Tournay, where he arrived about noon. He was not missed until late next morning when some of the boys to whom he had talked of such a design, not finding him, discovered the thing. For the Prefect imagined by his absence from church he had, tho' without his leave, gone into the infirmary, whither he went not to see, suspecting nothing. As soon as 'twas known Mr. Tunstal took horses and a man and tracing him, rid so hard, that before night he took him (with a guard that he carried from Tournay) on this side the ScheId within a league of the enemy's camp, and so brought him back. [po 194.] This boy had been by his freinds of mean condition put to sea in an English man of war called the Ludlow, which being taken after a sharp fight by a French man of war and brought into Dunkirk, the crew was dispersed into several prisons hereabouts. About 40 whereof was in the prison of this town, who being all but two or three converted and confirmed, by the zealous endeavours of our priests, this boy being a pretty and witty child, the Bishop, Lieutenant du Roy and all were taken with him. So that we were prevailed upon to use our interest at St. Germains for his freed orne and to take him to the Colledge for charity, which was done, the Queen 136 having at our request obtained his liberty. And the boy came on finely, till some fancys spoiled his application to his studys, which gave way to such thoughts as increased, I fear, ill passions, to the degree of making him insensible of the consequences, which at the same time he had wit enough to see and spoke of. He was some time after sent away to Paris hoping to get him into some service. But there he longed to come back hither, which he did, but living over the way for some time, he behaved himself not so well as to deserve it and so was sent away towards England. But in the way, as I heard afterwards, took on to serve Major General Ingolsby,137 who the winter following was commandant at Ghent, but being a very malicious Protestant his condition is to be lamented.

This day at the presenting the masters of Humanity to the schollars as usually, Mr. President made Latin harangues to the uper [sic] schools, and English to those of Figures according to the old custome which he had omitted for several years past. October 13. st. Edward's Day. Mr. President feasted the refectory according to his custome. And in the evening came from the Colledge at Rome to this, at the desire of Cardinal Sacripanti,I41 Mr. Geo. Flint,142 clerick. Both the Jesuits' ways and the air of the place agreed ill with him. He is of years and had lived in the world before his conversion to the Catholick faith. He gives but a bad account of the Jesuits' ways, and has conceived a terrible prejudice against them from what he has observed in them. 1706. [po 196.] Tuesday, 2 November. Mr. Tho. Roydon declared to me that [mutilated] with Mr. President and the Colledge he and Mr. [mutilated] man and out of a principle of conscience confessed that he [mutilated] was so far prevailed upon by the sayd Poynze143 (whom the Jesuits [mutilated] got made priest at the English Colledge at Rome) that they made each a [mutilated] signed by each that they had heard Mr. Mayes say, before the condemnation of the famous case of conscience, that had it been proposed to him or any here, they could not have resolved it any other way (than the 42 Paris doctors did)144 according to Mr. VicePresident's145 doctrine. When they showed what they had writ upon the matter to Father Weidert of the Walloon Jesuits, Mr. Poinzes his confident, he did not like the thing, but worded it himself to make it a tool to work, which as he had writ it they sayd Mr. Roydon and Mr. Brown signed and declared to be true par devant notair, which all was done in Procureur Walgras his house. [Written in margin: See of this matter also above, 21 and 22 N ovember 1704. 146 ] They desired this day their papers back, but the Jesuit put them of [sic] and kept it under pretence that Mr. Poynzes his certificate could not be given without his consent, nor even destroyed, he sayd, when they proposed to see it burnt. Of the case of consciences there was two resolutions, one that approved the doctrines and opinions of the party, which they called doctrine pure et saine; the other that esteeming the doctrine proposed in the case not then condemned by the Church, thought that Giuseppe Sacripante (born about 1643) was created a Cardinal in Dec. 1695. He became Prefect of Propaganda in Dec. 1704 and died in 1727. (Bubel, vol. 5, 19.) 142 George Flint of Northumberland arrived at the English College, Rome on 31 Dec. 1700, aged 23.

a particular confessor had no right to deny absolution, before the Church had declared what particulars were to think upon the matter. The respectful silence as sufficient obedience to the Pope's decrees (for that is the greatest authority which has yet declared the fact in question of the 5 propositions being in the book of Jansenius,I47 altho' all the anti-Jansenists talk hugely of the decision of the Church, particularly those in France, who notwithstanding their zeal, dare not assert their tenet of infallibility in such facts to the Pope so are forced to take the name of the Church as if the matter had been declared in a General Council as of faith; whereas no more than some bishops of France and Flanders have medled with the examination of or spoke upon the matter) and sufficient in one who takes the formulary of Alexander 7th148 is the matter on which the stress of the question lyes. And this it is that Clement XI, the present Pope, has condemned in his Bull.l 49 Before which there were 3 sorts of people that allowed absolution to a penitent in the case proposed. First, the great defenders of Jansenius his book who (altho' they did not think that without beleef of the fact the formulary might be lawfully signed and therefore they suffered all the consequences of the refusal in themselves) yet they did not think they had right to deny the sacraments to such as put the sense upon the formulary when they [mutilated] as was necessary when they did not beleeve the fact. Secondly, were those who thought the [po 197] fact of Jansenius was not true, yet that they might take the formulary [mutilated] belief supposing that the oath only affected the condemnation of the 5 propositions (which all men condemned, even Arnold150 and Quenel,I51 etc.) directly, and not the fact which they took to be a thing only in supposition, or the opinion of him who worded the fact, the affirmation of which was not supposed to be expected or exacted from the [mutilated] formulary. And both these sorts of people founded their opinions upon the [mutilated] Church effected under Clement the 9th152 who seemed to be contented with the subscriptions from the 4 noted bishops153 who it's certain and was then evident did not believe the fact. The third sort of people that would not condemn the case was such as both condemned the 5 propositions and also beleeved the fact, and so most sincerely signed the formulary. Yet they beleeved the peace under Clement the 9th 14.7

made upon such terms and condescentions in regard of the 4 bishops and others, that they thought themselves obliged to allow, what they judged the sense, to all penitents and therefore judged the person in the case not to be denyed the sacraments. Of this last sort there were many who on the last Bull154 have not changed their sentiments, and esteem the beleef of the fact necessary to take the formulary with an oath, since the Pope has declared that to be expected by those who tender it. With what is above related Fa. Sabran,155 for whom all that matter with Fa. Weidert was managed, thought to do wonders, and therefore when he was deputed for the English province to go to Rome for the choice of a new General, the former being dead this year (Gonzales),156 he layed hard about him there to cast the aspersion of J ansenism upon this Colledge, hoping so to alienate the mind of the Pope and court of Rome from us, as by that means to give us a lift off the saddle and seat themselves in our places; the discourses which has been heard from the mouths of English Jesuits since Mr. Poinzes departure, and of which advice has been givt:n hither by persons of extraordinary credit, gave us to understand that was the design they had premeditated against the Colledge. But this Sabran's confident, not to say impudent, way of talking to diffame us, was so far from making any impression to our disadvantage (much less was it esteemed Ghospel) that upon Mr. Mayes's first audience had of the Pope, his holiness, without any occasion administered on his part, spoke with a great deal of esteem of the clergie missioners, and very meanly of the Frati. On the 7th May 1707, Mr. Tho. Roydon declared to me, that what he and Mr. Brown heard Mr. Mayes speak, was uttered betwixt September and November 1702 at which time the case of conscience of the 40 doctors was published here and before the condemnation of the sayed case which was only upon the 12 February 1703.

He entered the Society in 1670. He was one of the chaplains of James II and had to escape from England in 1688. In 1699 he became President of the Episcopal Seminary at Liege, and he held this office until he became Provincial of the English Province in 1708. From 1712 until 1715 he was Rector of St. Omers College, and he then became Spiritual Father of the English College, Rome. He died in Jan. 1732.

Mter which, a great many plaints and chicanes were offered by Mr. De Marcque, and two Jesuits students who were to concur, carrying chiefly exceptions against the judges particularly Mr. De Wille, who two or three days after was turned out of his Regency in the King's Colledge, by a lettre de cachet, as accused of Jansenism, tho' as to that matter he had cleared himself by the most authentick testimonys, long ago before the late Bishop of Tournay162 and lately to prevent malicious designs by signing the formulary etc. before the present Bishop of Arras. The end of this affair was an appeal to the King, upon which the proceedings were sent to the Intendant, Mr. De Bagnol, where they willly [sic] in all probability till the matter be otherwise regulated by the court. It is to be observed that some time after Dr. Hawarden's pretending to a lesson in the great concourse of 1702163 the Jesuits got up a great many subscriptions in this town that attested him to have asserted some doctrine like that contained afterwards in the case of the 42 Paris doctors concerning silence respectueux. 164 How that could enter into the head of any that heard him I know not, but the matter of fact was, the Jesuits got attestations to that effect.

However we saw no publick effect of all their preparations or work, till the pretentions of Mr. Perkinson in this Greek concourse made the fathers of this town redouble their zeal.

To have an impartial account about us he could think of no better a way than to write to Father [mutilated] then Rector of the Scots Jesuits, who slyly to curry favour with this house told Mr. President the thing, and desired to learn what he should write. Mr. President told him what was true, but what he writ upon it the Jesuits know best. But as is sayed above, in January 1707 Monsgr. Bussy put up accusations in the court of Rome against the clergy. What they were or whence they came was a long while kept very secret from Mr. Mayes and the clergy.

PROVOSTS AND DEANS OF DOVAI COLLEGE c. 1718-1774.

This single leaf manuscript is in the collections of Upholland College; Father Peter Doyle of Upholland kindly arranged for it to be loaned to the Catholic Record Society in order that this transcript might be made. The manuscript seems to have been compiled about 1750, with later additions. It appears that the Provost was always the person who held the office of Prefect of Studies, while the Dean was nearly always one of the Professors of Humanities. It is not certain which academic years are indicated by the dates given in this document, but it is likely that the earlier year rather than the later one is meant, e.g. "1751" means the academic year from October 1750 to September 1751, rather than 1751-2. The dates in the earlier part of this document are much less reliable than those in the later part-e.g. James Gandy is stated to have been the Dean in 1729 but in fact he seems to have left Douai in 1726; and Edward Bartlet is stated to have been the Dean in 1730 although the Seventh Douai Diary records his departure in July or August 1729.

nOVAI COLLEGE IN 1738 and ARRIVALS THERE, 1738-1752.

This document contains twelve pages (the last two being blank) and is in the archives of the Archbishop of Westminster (A.48, no.54). It consists of a list of those at Douai on 1 October 1738, followed by a list of students who arrived at the College between October 1738 and September 1752. The document was apparently all written at one time. The last arrival recorded is that of Miles Stapylton who entered the College on 16 September 1752. The list must have been written after May 1754 since Philip Perry, who took his D.D. at Paris at that time, is described as "Doctor" in the list (see infra p. 122). Since John Manning who was ordained in 1756 is recorded as being a priest, while Marmaduke Wilson who was ordained in 1758 is not thus recorded (see infra p. 127), the list was probably compiled about 1757. Those who had been ordained by the time the list was compiled were marked x, while those who had died by that date were marked +. It should however be noted that these markings are not complete; for example there is no x against the name of Francis Petre, the Vice-President. The list of those at Douai in 1738 is useful because although the Seventh Douai Diary contains such lists for the years 1716 to 1737 and from 1747 to 1753, there are no lists for the years from 1738 to 1746. The list of arrivals from 1738 to 1752 is of students who came to Douai College for the first time during this period. There are a few exceptions-the return of William Rayment after a period of absence is noted (see infra p. 309), and the arrivals in January 1740 of John Bridgeman (a priest), in January 1749 of John Adams (a priest), and in October 1751 of John Belson (a guest) are recorded (see infra pp. 122, 128, 129); but these entries were apparently made in error. The list of arrivals is not in strict chronological order, but a check against the Seventh Douai Diary shows that it is complete. During the fourteen years from October 1738 to September 1752 a total of 259 students arrived at Douai College, of whom 60 eventually became priests.

The Prefect of Studies Book, 1750-94, is an octavo and measures approximately seven inches by four and a quarter inches. It contains 434 pages (paginated i-vi, 1-428; there are two unpaginated pages between pages 13 and 14, but the total is not affected because at some date in the past pages 65 and 66, which were almost certainly blank, were cut out). Most of the pages are filled; the only considerable number of blank pages extends from page 62 to page 102. The manuscript has been rebound in green leather in modern times and is well preserved. Pages ii to iv list the authors to be read in the various schools of Humanities. Pages 1 to 10 contain rules for the masters of the Humanities schools. Pages 12 to 35 list the books on issue to the . masters in 1750 with notes indicating the condition of these books. Then on page. 38 begins the first of the lists of members of the college which cover the years from 1750 to 1794 inclusive. With the exception of the first (which is dated 3 June 1750) all these lists show the state of the College on or about 1 October of each year, since this day (the feast of St. Remigius) was the beginning of the academic year. Notes were added later in the year to each list showing arrivals, departures, deaths and promotions from one class to another. The various Prefects of Studies differed considerably, of course, in the numbers of details which they added to the lists. Probably the 1750-94 volume was the last of a series of Prefect of Studies Books. At least one earlier volume existed because on page 38 of the 1750-94 book, at the beginning of the list for June 1750, is the following sentence: " See the former book for the names and numbers of the convictors and alumni at the beginning of the academic year". As in the case of the Douai Diaries it is not known for certain how the Prefect of Studies Book reached England. A note in the Catholic Magazine of April 1831 reads as follows: "The Rt. Rev. Doctor Gradwell, who, by the bye, was the youngest and last of the students of Douay College, who embraced an ecclesiastical statewith some difficulty got a bag of books conveyed to their first prison, the Scotch College in Douay, when the English College was seized on 12 October 1793. Among these was the register of the Prefect of Studies, which contains the list of all the schools read up by him, annually, on the first 'Of October from the year 1743 downwards. It is now at Ushaw College, and contains the list of 1794, made at Dourlens, by Dr. Poynter, then the Prefect of Studies. When Dr. Gradwell gave the St. Remigius's book to the late Rev. Thomas Eyre, the first President of Ushaw College, he was desired by him to draw up a short narrative of the suppression of Douay College, and the adventures of their imprisonment".l 1

In October 1793 Robert Gradwell, aged 16, was in Grammar, and he may well have saved the Prefect of Studies Book and other volumes. But the account given above is wrong in at least two respects-the first list in the Prefect of Studies Book is for 1750, not 1743, and the copy at Ushaw College in 1831 (and still there in 1970) was a transcript, not the original volume. This is made clear by two letters printed in Ward's History of St. Edmund's (pages 141-2) which show that the original volume was loaned by Bishop Poynter to Thomas Eyre (then President of Crook Hall, the forerunner of Ushaw) in pecember 1806. He copied it and returned the original to Poynter in 1807. Poynter was the last Prefect of Studies at Douai and the list of those at Doullens on 1 October 1794 is in his handwriting, and was written on that date as the heading shows. 2 So he certainly had the Prefect of Studies Book with him when in prison at Doullens, and presumably brought it back to England when the Douai men were allowed to leave France in February 1795. The Prefect of Studies Book was at St. Edmund's College in 1872, but soon afterwards Cardinal Manning had it removed to the Oratory where it was kept with the archives of the Archbishop of Westminster, including the Douai Diaries. It was there in 1892 when Ward was writing his History of St. Edmund's.3 By 1911 it was back at St. Edmund's and Edwin Burton wrote in his preface to the edition of the Third, Fourth and Fifth Douai Diaries that it was intended to publish the Prefect of Studies Book in due course. 4 In 1914 Guilday wrote that Burton was preparing the Prefect of Studies Book for publication. 5 In his preface to the edition of the Seventh Douai Diary, published in 1928, Edmond Nolan referred to the need to publish the Prefect of Studies Book which was kept at St. Edmund's.6 In 1970 it was still there. The 1793 and 1794 lists from the Prefect of Studies Book were printed in the Catholic Magazine, volume 1 (1831-2), pages 462-5, and the 1792, 1793 and 1794 lists were printed in Ward's History of St. Edmund's (1893), pages 311-15. Other Sources of Information for the Period 1750 to 1794. The following documents are particularly valuable in providing information to fill out the necessarily bare details provided by the lists of names and offices which the Prefect of Studies Book contains. (a) Constitutions. The first constitutions for the government of the English College, Douai were drawn up in 1600, but the constitutions in force during the period covered by the Prefect of Studies Book were those issued by Cardinal Philip Howard, the Protector of the College, on 15 October 1689. They were printed at Douai in 2 S

1690. They contain ten chapters dealing with the following subjects: admission to the College, piety, studies, discipline, ordination and departure for the English Mission, the offices of VicePresident, Prefect of Studies, Prefect General and Procurator, and minor offices in the College. (b) The Quaesita of 1741. Shortly after Dr. William Thornburgh became President in 1739, the reforming Benedict XIV ascended the Papal throne. He began an investigation into ecclesiastical education and as a result the Nuncio at Brussels sent to Douai a series of Quaesita (or questions) which had to be answered. The Quaesita and Thornburgh's replies (dated 31 May 1741) were printed in the Ushaw Magazine in 19048 and provide much useful information about life at the College. The nineteen questions deal with the following subjects: the foundation of the College; whether any regulations are no longer observed; whether new regulations are necessary; how many alumni are maintained.; whether' the number of alumni is fixed; whether convictors are also admitted; whether there is any distinction between alumni and convictors; what the rules are for the admission of alumni; whether the names of alumni are reported to the Holy See; whether favouritism enters into the choice of alumni; what disciplinary action is taken in respect of unsatisfactory alumni; whether any useless persons are supported by College funds; what the course of studies is; what have been the achievements of the College; what is the total of College funds and revenues; who provided funds for the College; whether the accounts are properly kept; whether the bishop of the diocese (the Bishop of Arras) has founded a seminary at Douai; whether any relevant matters have been omitted in the answers to the above questions. (c) Seventh Douai Diary. This diary provides much information about the life of the College up to May 1754; but from that date until the diary ends in 1778 there is merely a brief annual summary of major events for the years 1755, 1757, 1762, 1763 and 1768-78. In the printed version of the diary 9 the material for the period from 1754 to 1778 occupies only seven pages. But for the first few years of the period covered by the Prefect of Studies Book there is much useful data in the Seventh Douai Diary, including complete lists of members of the College which can be checked against the lists in the Prefect of Studies Book. (d) Tichborne Blount Diary. This diary (which is printed infra, pages 340-79) provides supplementary information for the period from August 1770 until May 1781. 7

Office Holders. The Seniors of Douai College consisted of the President, the Vice-President, the Prefect of Studies, the Prefect General and the Procurator together with the Professors of Theology and of Philosophy. Others shared the Seniors' table from time to time-visiting priests, distinguished lay visitors, and occasionally Professors of the Humanities schools who were priests of standing. The President was of course the king-pin of the etablishment and the personalities of the successive holders of that office profoundly influenced the history of the College. 1o The Presidents during the period covered by the Prefect of Studies Book were as follows:

14th 15th 16th 17th 18th

1750- 70. William Green, vere Scott Henry Tichborne Blount 1770-80. 1781-90. William Gibson Edward Kitchin 1791. 1792-5. John Daniel (He continued to be titular President until his death in 1823.)

The President was appointed by the Congregation of Propaganda, and the constitutions of the College made clear that his decision on all matters was final. He was exhorted to inform himself by consulting others, but never to be swayed by entreaties when he had made up his mind,u He decided who was to be admitted to the College, and who was to be dismissed, and he appointed all the officials and professors. The notes which Robert Witham wrote in 1725 as guidance for his successors as President give an idea of the range of the responsibilities of the office. 12 Above all the President had to maintain discipline and he had to beware of too much familiarity even with the Seniors, Professors and students of theology. He had to possess keys to all the rooms and cupboards in the College, and he had periodically to carry out tours of inspection. He had carefully to watch the progress of all the students and report to parents and guardians how each individual was improving. He had to look into all the account books, and oversee the accounts of the procurators at Rome, London and Paris. He had to see that the farms and estates of the College were well managed. It was his responsibility to see that no Professor of Theology or of Philosophy advanced any heterodox opinions. He had to correspond regularly with the Cardinal Protector and with Propaganda at Rome, with the bishops, 10

See the important series of articles by Father David Milburn in the Ushaw Magazine on the Presidency of William Gibson from 1781 to 1790. These clearly show how important the influence of the President was. Gibson set out to modernize Douai College, and did good work in improving the buildings and bringing the curriculum up to date. But he antagonized the senior staff and proved incompetent in financial matters. (Ushaw M., vol. 66, 69-79, 134-47; vol. 67, 11-24.) Chapter 4, section 1 ofthe 1689 constitutions.

missioners, nobility and gentry in England, with the Internuncio at Brussels, with the superior of St. Gregory's College at Paris, and with the confessors, abbesses and superiors of English religious houses which were under the direction of Douai. The Vice-President, according to the constitutions,13 was to assist the President in all matters which appertained to the government of the College, but it was his special duty to see that all obeyed the rules and regulations. He was expected to carry out constant tours of inspection, and to keep a careful record of all College property allocated to the various office holders. He also had the task of seeing that all new officials were instructed in their duties. He was especially enjoined to care for the sick. He had the ultimate responsibility of attending to all matters which did not fall within the province of any other official, and in the absence of the President he took his place and authority, having the power even to issue orders to the other Seniors. It was not uncommon for the office of Vice-President.to be combined with that of Procurator, and the post was sometimes held by one of the Professors of Theology. The Prefect of Studies was in charge of all matters relating to scholastic work, not only in the Humanities schools but also in those of philosophy and theology. He had to attend philosophical and theological disputations and frequently visit the Humanities classes to ensure that the professors were teaching properly. He had to see that the time-table was strictly observed and prescribe a programme of work for each class for the whole year. No written work was to be published without his approval and he had to examine and approve all theological and philosophical theses. He had charge of the distribution of books and (with the President's approval) could even remove books from Seniors if necessary. He was enjoined to punish those whose work was negligent, and carefully to observe the progress of each student throughout the academic year. If any professor could not carry out his duties the Prefect had to appoint one of the priests or students of theology to take his place. It was his duty to listen impartially to the complaints of professors and pupils and to settle disputes peacefully and equitably. The constitutions14 sum up his responsibilities as follows: "In short he must remove all obstacles to learning, encourage it by his aid, and spend himself wholeheartedly for the common good of the students and their studies". In view of the multifarious duties it is surprising to find that the post of Prefect of Studies was often combined with that of Professor of Theology or of Philosophy. The Prefect General's office15 was to ensure that order and discipline were maintained in the College. He had to see that the students arose at the proper time and that they attended litanies, Masses, conferences and other religious duties punctually. He was 13 14

in charge of the bell which signalled the various stages of the day's time-table, and it was he who gave or withheld permission for students to go out of the College. He was authorised to punish all below theology who broke the rules; before punishing a student of theology he had first to consult the President or the Vice-President. He was expected to pay frequent visits to the students' rooms, and not to allow anyone to wander through the College at unauthorised times. He had to see that rooms were kept clean and that the refectory was in good order. He had to ensure that students did not visit the servants' living and working quarters, and had to be in the hall when the Humanities students entered or left class to see that they behaved properly. He had also to see that they conversed in Latin. When a new student arrived the Prefect General had to show him his room and the way to the refectory. He had to take care that the students did not damage their clothes (especially during recreation) and that they did not rush about and shout. As well as the students, the servants also came under the surveillance of the Prefect General. The Procurator was the last official to whose duties a chapter was devoted in the 1689 constitutions. I6 The state and condition of the whole College depended in no small degree on whether or not there was a well-ordered economy, so the Procurator was of great importance. He had to safeguard the material assets of the College, to see that bills for school fees and other charges were promptly sent out, receive income, pay debts and make purchases. He had to be adept at arithmetic and book-keeping, and well acquainted with coins and their qualities (because of the amount of variable and forged currency in circulation). He had to keep a ledger of income and expenditure, and a day-book for noting down expenses and receipts as soon as they occurred. All moneys were paid to him (not to the President) and it was his responsibility to lock them in the safe. He had to lay in supplies of good food and durable clothing. He was required to submit a financial report to the President each month, and to prepare a balance sheet each year. The constitutions also providedI7 for minor officials, such as sacristans and infirmarians, to be chosen from amongst the most serious minded students. The replies to the Quaesita of 1741 give the following list of minor officials- prefects of the sacristy, of the common study place, of the infirmary, of the wardrobe, of the common dormitory, of the kitchen and of the library. IS Sometimes these prefectships were combined with professorships. The Professors of Theology and of Philosophy were counted amongst the Seniors, while the Professors of the schools of Humanities were normally grouped separately as "Professors" or "Professors and Priests"; but occasionally, if some priest of standing was teaching Humanities, he was included in the list of Seniors. 16 17

The two Professors of Theology were of course of great importance. Robert Witham in his "Advice to a President" ranks them in importance immediately after the President, Vice-President and Prefect of Studies. 19 The constitutions laid down that the President had to take the utmost care when appointing Professors of Theology, and those appointed had to beware of all novel opinions and had to adhere to the sound teaching of Aquinas. 20 The two Professors of Philosophy (who usually proceeded in due course to teach theology) dealt with purely philosophical questions in the first year of the course, and with the subject matter of Aristotle's "Physics" in the second year.21 The members of the College grouped together under the heading "Professors and Priests" were the masters of the various schools of Humanities (Rhetoric, Poetry, Syntax, Grammar and Rudiments) together with, from time to time, masters of writing and of music, and students of theology who had already been ordained as priests. It should be noted that many of the Humanities professors were students of theology and philosophy who had broken off their studies for a time in order to teach. The professors of Humanities usually accompanied the group of boys with whom they were concerned as the latter were promoted through the various schools or classes; they rarely taught the same section of the course for two years in succession. For example, William Foster (vere Daniel) took his class through from Rudiments II in 1752-3 to Rhetoric in 1757-8. But it was not common to teach the whole Humanities course in this way-most professors only taught Humanities for two or three years. In anyone year there was only one professor for each of the classes of Rhetoric, Poetry, Syntax and Grammar. But the number of Professors of Rudiments varied from one to three, usually in response to the number of boys studying this particular section of the course. During the period covered by the Prefect of Studies Book, for about half the time there were two Professors of Rudiments, for about a quarter of the time there was one, and for the remaining quarter, three. There were nearly always three classes of Rudiments and sometimes four; so the professors were usually in charge of more than one class. Course of Studies. The English College, Douai was of course not only a seminary to train priests for the English Mission; it was also a grammar school training students in the Humanities, some of whom would proceed to the philosophical and theological courses in preparation for ordination. As Professor Beales has explained force of circumstances obliged Douai to grow downwards from the 19 20 21

top.22 In its first ten years all its students were mature scholars taking courses in theology; but it soon received an influx of young men and boys who could not receive an education in a Catholic school in England, and who therefore turned to Douai. In time it became normal for students to enter at or near the bottom of the school, take the whole Humanities course, and then move on to higher studies if they aspired to ordination. The lowest school or class was called Rudiments (or Figures). In the Prefect of Studies Book up to four schools of Rudiments are shown from time to time, but the most usual number was three. The first principles of Latin were studied and the easier rules of Greek grammar, together with selected stories from Scripture and from Cicero and other secular authors. Some dialogues of Erasmus or a similar author were dealt with and the catechism was studied. (The study of the catechism figures in the work schedule of each class up to Rhetoric.) The school above Rudiments was called Grammar, and the authors studied were Cicero, Aesop, Lucian, Cornelius Nepos, Quintus Curtius and Justin. Then came the school of Syntax with more work on Cicero, the study of the Greek New Testament, and the reading of Caesar, Sallust and Florus. In the school of Poetry most of the year was occupied with Virgil, but Ovid, Claudian and Statius were also read. The Greek authors studied were Homer, Hesiod, Theocritus and a choice of Isocrates, Lucian, Herodian or Xenophon. In addition the students were urged to read history and geography. The highest school of the Humanities course was called Rhetoric. The Latin authors studied were Cicero, Horace, Seneca, Terence and Juvenal. In Greek the choice was from Herodian, Isocrates, Demosthenes or Xenophon. The students also read historical and geographical works privately.23 The content of Douai's Humanities course (as Mr. J. S. Malone has pointed out) differed little from that of any public or grammar school in England. 24 But the method and organization of teaching was different. It was based on "schools" instead of on "forms". A "form" implied only the occupation of a single form or bench in a large room, which also accomodated other "forms". A "school" was a self contained unit with a separate master and a separate classroom. This resulted in a much larger teaching staff (at Douai, up to seven) than was customary in the normal English grammar school where there were rarely more than two masters. This method of organization was derived in part from the Jesuit "Ratio Studiorum" (Plan of Studies).25 The Ratio was first published (after many years experimentation) in 1599, and (apart AC.F. Beales, Education under Penalty (1963), 115. P.S.B., ii-iv. 24 J. S. Malone, "The Douay-Ushaw Tradition", in Ushaw M., vol. 78, 54-60. 25 For the Ratio Studiorum see E. A Fitzpatrick, St. Ignatius and the Ratio Studiorum (1933), and A. P. Farrell, The Jesuit Code of Liberal Education (1938).

from some slight changes in 1616) remained the official major pedagogical guide of the Society until the suppression of the Jesuits in 1773. (It was revived and amended by them in the nineteenth century.) It probably influenced the rules prepared for the guidance of the professors of the Humanities at Douai, as well as the general organization of the course there. Certainly there are some striking resemblances between the rules in force at Douai and the Ratio, but it has been said that "it seems probable that these are to be explained not so much by direct borrowings from the Ratio as by the fact that both derive from a common mediaeval tradition".26 In support of this theory is the fact that the Douai rules differ from, as well as resemble, the Ratio. For example, whereas at Douai, the Prefect of Studies was directly in control of both the higher studies of theology and philosophy and the lower schools of Humanities, the Ratio provided for a separate Prefect of Lower Studies to superintend the schools of Rhetoric and below (under the overall control of the Prefect General of Studies). When students had completed their Humanities course those who stayed on proceeded to philosophy which was normally a prelude to theology and ordination. But not all who studied philosophy went on to theology. Since there were no opportunities for Catholic laymen to obtain higher education in England some took the philosophy course at Douai as a partial substitute for a university education. The first year or "low" philosophers were called "logici" (or sometimes, Dialecticians) and studied genuinely philosophical problems; but the second year men or "high" philosophers were called "physici" because they dealt with some questions of .physical science. The boundary between philosophy proper and natural science had not then been clearly defined and so problems of cosmology and of physical science were intermingled as they are in Aristotle's "Physics", on which Douai's course was based. As section 8 of chapter 3 ("Studies") of the 1689 Douai constitutions expressed it, the Professors of Philosophy should "cover the usual ground of universal philosophy, i.e. the five universals, the categories, argumentation and the other sections usually assigned to Logic; the various matters contained in the eight books of "Physics"-the earth and the sky, coming to be and passing away, the soul, metaphysics, the ultimate purpose of man, and other matters relating to ethics". The more accomplished students would undertake public "defensions" at which they would display their learning before students and professors of other colleges in Douai. Anyone chosen for this task would defend three times during his two year coursein April or May of the first year he would defend in logic and metaphysics; in February of his second year he would defend in natural philosophy; finally at the end of his second year he would defend Universal Philosophy, that is he would maintain theses taken from the whole range of philosophy.27 26 27

DOUAI COLLEGE DOCUMENTS

On completing philosophy those who remained at the College began the four year course of theology, during which they received minor orders, the subdiaconate, the diaconate, and finally ordination as priests. The two Professors of Theology were instructed to apportion out the treatises to be dealt with (one God, the Trinity, human acts, sin, law, grace, the theological virtues, right and justice, the Incarnation and the sacraments) so that they could be completed in a four year cycle. 28 Particular stress was to be laid on the solving of cases of conscience and on apologetics, on the study of Scripture and on the catechism of the Council of Trent. Point and Age of Entry to Douai College. As has been said above Douai College began as a seminary and developed downwards into a school. 29 By the latter half of the eighteenth century the vast majority of students began their course at the bottom of the school, in one or other of the Rudiments classes. Out of approximately 213 future priests who began their training at Douai after 1749, 170 (or 80 per cent) began in the schools of Rudiments. The total entry during the period 1750-94 was approximately 850, and of these 712 (or 84! per cent) began in Rudiments. About 10! per cent began in the remaining Humanities schools (Grammar, Syntax, Poetry, Rhetoric), 3t per cent in Philosophy and It per cent in Theology. Of the 170 future priests who began their course in Rudiments the ages of 158 have been traced; the average age of commencing was 14路8 years (the actual ages varied between 8 and 27, but the bulk were in the 11 to 16 age range). Of the lay boys who began at Douai after 1749, the ages of only 97 have been noted (out of approximately 630). The average age of commencing at Douai was 13路4 years-and as has been stated above 84t per cent began in Rudiments. So if one takes a figure roughly half-way between the 14路8 years for future priests and 13路4 for lay boys, it seems that the average age at which to begin Rudiments was something over 14 years. The majority of boys studied Rudiments for at least two years. If therefore they began their courses aged 14, the average age in each school was as follows:

Alumni and Con victors. It is important to note the distinction between alumni (foundationers) and convictors (fee-payers) at Douai. The Papal Brief of 1575 which made Douai a Pontifical College granted it an annual pension (originally of 1200 Clowns and later raised to 2100 crowns), and this sum was used to support the alumni, whereas the convictors were supported by their parents or friends (and later by funds set up by various persons and bodies to provide scholarships).30 The original number of alumni was 40,31 but the number fluctuated according to the amount of money available and according to variations in the cost of living. By 1741 when William Thornburgh replied to the Quaesita from the Nuncio at Brussels it w~s the practice to use not only the grant from the Holy See to support alumni but also whatever other sums of money could be gathered for the purpose. Thornburgh gave the number of alumni for the period 1716 to 1741 as follows (the numbers in brackets represent approximately the total number of persons at Douai during the years in question) :

1716 1717 1718 1719 1720 1721 1722 1723 1724 1725 1726 1727 1728 1729 1730 1731 1732 1733 1734 1735 1736 1737 1738 1739 30 31

The number of alumni was therefore about one quarter or one third of the total number of persons at the College. It should be noted that the numbers of alumni quoted above included Seniors and Professors as well as students; in 1741, for example, the 32 alumni included the President, the Vice-President, a Professor of Theology, the Prefect General, the two Professors of Philosophy, a confessor, six Professors of Humanities, fifteen students of theology and four students of philosophy.33 The formal act which made a student an alumnus was the taking of the Mission oath. On arrival at Douai all students, both those who intended to remain convictors and those who in due course would become alumni, took an oath which consisted of a profession of faith in accordance with the Bull of Pius IV, an oath not to disturb the peace of the College and a promise to observe the College rules. This oath is referred to in section 5 of chapter 1 of the 1689 constitutions. 34 The oath of the alumni was not taken until the student had spent some time at the College, in order that his suitability for ordination might be assessed by the authorities. Since it was not normally taken until the student was in Philosophy, or less frequently in Theology (sometimes in Rhetoric, and very rarely in Poetry) a student who began in Rudiments had to spend several years at Douai before he could become an alumnus. 35 The constitutions of 1600 prescribed an oath for the alumni which involved a vow to receive Holy Orders in due course and to go on the English Mission when commanded to do so, and a promise to live peaceably in the College and abide by its rules. In 1625 Propaganda imposed on the students of all Pontifical colleges (including Douai) an oath which was re-imposed with some variations by Alexander VII on 20 July 1660. This required alumni to vow to obey the College rules, not to join any religious order without the permission of Propaganda, to accept Holy Orders when required to do so, and to return to their native lands when Propaganda gave the order. At Douai this oath was held not to supersede the older one and the alumni took both,36 as is confirmed by the 1689 constitutions where both oaths are printed in an appendix, with a reference back to chapter 1, section 7. An alumnus had therefore an obligation to serve the English Mission; a convictor had no such obligation. Moreover many convictors did not proceed to Holy Orders but left Douai at the end Ushaw M., vol. 14, 30. Ibid., 28, 29. 34 It is printed on p. 80 of the 1st D.D. 36 An examination of the careers at Douai of 140 future priests who took the oath in the second half of the eighteenth century shows that 2 took it when in Poetry, 25 in Rhetoric, 75 in Philosophy and 38 in Theology. 36 See the 1st D.D., 47-8 where both oaths are printed, and the footnote on p.47. 32

of their humanities course. In his replies to the Quaesita Thornburgh pointed out the reasons for having convictors at Douai College; in the first place it was practically impossible for a Catholic to obtain a classical education in England without danger to faith and morals; in the second place the convictors provided friends and patrons for the College and its students; in the third place some convictors became alumni and their qualities were well-known to the authorities before they took the Mission oath. 37 In the day to day life of the College no distinction was made between the alumni and the con victors. Thornburgh claimed that all followed the same order of life as the rest of their class or standing. All wore the black cassock and at the order of the superiors all took their turn at waiting at table (except the priests and professors who never waited at table). 38

Aliases. It is of course well known that students at the English Catholic colleges and schools abroad made use of aliases for security reasons, to prevent spies reporting to the English authorities which families were breaking the law by sending their children abroad to be educated. It is however curious that the alias adopted was often the maiden name of the student's mother ; this does not seem a very effective form of disguise. It has been said that by the eighteenth century the use of aliases had almost died out, but an examination of the Prefect of Studies Book shows that during the period which it covers, more than five per cent of the students were still using aliases-47 out of approximately 850 who began their studies at Douai between 1750 and 1794. A further breakdown of the figures shows however that aliases had virtually died out by 1780-in the 1750s, 15 new students used aliases, in the 1760s, 14, in the 1770s, 16, in the 1780s, none, and in the 1790s, 2. Numbers at Douai College. For most years of the eighteenth century until the closure of Douai it is possible to discover how many staff and students there were at the English College. Moreover for the period from 1716 until 1794 (with the exception of the period from 1738 until 1746) the number of Seniors and professors and of the students in the various classes can be discovered from the Seventh Douai Diary and from the Prefect of Studies Book. If the abnormal years of 1793 and 1794 (when the members of the College were under arrest prior to their explusion from France) are excluded the numbers at Douai never fell below 91 after 1716. (The lowest figure in the eighteenth century was in 1710, when as a result of the siege of the town, the number at the English College fell to 63.) For much of the time they hovered round the 110 mark. The peak 37

years in the first half of the century were 1740 and 1741 when the numbers rose to 132. During the period covered by the Prefect of Studies Book the peak year was 1784 when 164 persons were at Douai College. From then until 1789 the numbers remained above 150. Then came the disturbances caused by the French Revolution, and by 1792 the number had fallen to 102. In 1793 only 54 remained, and when the members of the College left France in February 1795 they only totalled 26. 39 The number of Seniors varied from five to twelve during the eighteenth century; but the usual number was eight or nine. The number of professors varied from four to eleven, but usually there were between five and eight. The number of servants was usually nine or ten. These included the steward, the cook, the President's servant, the door-keeper, the gardener, the shoe-maker, the lictor (or attendant) and the infirmary attendant. 40 An examination of the figures for the period 1750 to 1794 shows that the number of those who commenced their courses at Douai College between these two dates was approximately 850 (i.e. those who began at Douai before 1750 are excluded, while those who completed their courses at other colleges after the fall of Douai are included). Of these 850 students about 213 (or 25 per cent) became priests-an average of about five priests each year. So about 75 per cent of Douai's students during this period did not proceed to the priesthood, which demonstrates the important part which Douai played in educating the English Catholic laity. The total number of persons referred to in the Prefect of Studies Book is about 1000. Apart from the 850 who began their studies at Douai after 1 January 1750, this figure of 1000 includes those students who began their studies before 1750, professors and Seniors who were at Douai after 1750 (but who were either trained at another college, or who began their Douai studies before 1750), and visitors to the College. Places of Origin. Of the 850 or so who began their studies at Douai after 1749 the vast majority came from England. But there are notes in the Prefect of Studies Book and in the Tichborne Blount diary showing that at least fifty came from other places. Eighteen are described as "Irish" or "from Ireland"-but there were undoubtedly more Irish at Douai whose place of origin was not stated. Various pupils with English or Irish names arrived from Spain, Portugal, Mexico, Teneriffe, Bordeaux, Rouen, St. Germain.: en-Laye, Cambrai, Buenos Aires and Santa Cruz. There were eight students with French names who came from Brittany, Montreuil, Bordeaux, Paris and Cateau Cambresis. There are also references to two students with Spanish names and five with Portuguese names. 39

Two unusual students merit special mention. The first was a converted Jew, Charles More (alias Benjamin Lamb) who arrived at Douai from Paris on 19 August 1771, having been sent by the Abbe Francis Plowden and Thomas Wright, who was then studying at St. Gregory's (having left Douai in 1761). More's original name had been Wolf, son of Jonah. He was baptised on 2 May 1772 and felt for Paris on 9 August. On 23 Sept 1773 he returned and remained at Douai College until on 2 April 1775 he left to reside with an ecclesiastic in the town of Douai.41 The second was John Hall who studied at Douai from 1791 until 1793 and was, surprisingly, a Protestant. 42 Timetable. The day at Douai College was strenuous. Those who slept in separate rooms rose at 5 a.m. At 5.30 they went to the church for mental prayer until 6 a.m. when the younger ones who slept in the common dormitory joined them; the litanies of the saints were then recited and Mass was celebrated for the conversion of England ana Scotland. After Mass, studies were pursued for rather more than an hour and then all went to the refectory for breakfast. Schools then began and continued until 10 a.m. The next two hours were occupied in study and then came dinner, followed by recreation until 2 p.m. From 2 until 4 there were schools, and from 4 until 6, study. At 6 p.m. there were litanies and prayers for the conversion of England and Scotland followed by fifteen minutes spiritual reading. Supper was then taken and after this there was free time until 8.30 p.m. when night prayers were said, an examination of conscience made, and points of meditation for the next day read. Then all retired for the night. 43 Institutions connected with Douai College. (a) The Venerable English College, Rome. During the period covered by the Prefect of Studies Book there were few connections between Douai and the Venerabile. The numbers of students at the Venerabile during the eighteenth century were much smaller than at Douai (between 1700 and 1739 they averaged 24) ;44 but it must be remembered that normally the students at Rome were pursuing higher studies while the majority of those at Douai were studying the Humanities. The Venerabile (founded 1578) had been at first under the direction of Italian Jesuits, and then from 1598 under the direction of English Jesuits. When the Society was suppressed by the Pope on 16 August 1773 the management of the College was entrusted to Italian priests, and a decline began which culminated in the virtual closure of the College from 1798 until 1818, following the French occupation of Rome in 1796. 41 42 43

DOUAl COLLEGE DOCUMENTS

Two students, John Daniel and Thomas Sturdy, left Rome to study philosophy at Douai in 1774 after Italians had taken charge of the Venerabile. In 1783 James Taylor transferred from Rome to Douai because of ill-health, and in 1786 John Norris arrived from Rome. Norris was ordained at St. Orner and soon afterwards apostatized. In 1791 four students of theology (T. Berry, J. Delaney, C. Thompson and T. Latham) came from Rome, perhaps because of the unsettled state of the Venerabile. The first two, in due course, became priests. This seems to be the total extent of the connection between the Venerabile and Douai College during the period covered by the Prefect of Studies Book. (b) The English College, Valladolid. The English College at Vallaolid, which was founded in 1589, was conducted by the Jesuits until the Society was expelled from Spain in 1767. The College was then closed, as were the English colleges of St. Gregory at Seville and St. George at Madrid, because they were mistakenly thought to be Jesuit property. Bishop Challoner protested to the Spanish government that both the latter two institutions were in fact owned by the English secular clergy, and as a result both they and the Valladolid college were handed back.45 The first rector of the united colleges was Dr. Philip Mark Perry who arrived at Valladolid on 15 April 1768 in company with Joseph Shepherd who was to teach theology; Shepherd had been a student and a professor at Douai from 1754 until January 1768. At this time only two students remained at Valladolid and one of these was soon expelled. 46 During the earlier part of the eighteenth century the number of students at Valladolid had never exceeded nine, and had rarely been more than six or seven; now obviously something had to be done to re-colonise it. On 27 June 1768 John Douglass (later Vicar Apostolic of the London District) arrived from Douai with eight students who were to study Humanities under his guidanceY In December 1769 three more students were sent from Douai to Valladolid,48 and on 13 November 1770 William Fryer arrived from Douai to be Professor of Humanities. 49 (c) St. Gregory's College, Paris. St. Gregory's was founded in Paris in 1667; its object was to afford priests and students for the priesthood the opportunity of a complete course of theology at the Sorbonne, with a view to obtaining the degree of Doctor of Divinity. It was for picked men; it never had more than six students at any one time and during the 120 years of its existence only 32 doctorates of divinity were gained by its students. The typical alumnus was a 45 46 47

student who came from Douai or from one of the other English colleges and who spent about ten years studying at st. Gregory's. In view of the length and difficulty of the course for a Sorbonne doctorate it is not surprising that only 32 doctorates were obtained by the more than one hundred students who are recorded at st. Gregory's.50 In addition to the normal students certain young men of rank were accepted as boarders from time to time. Charles and Edward Jerningham, sons of Sir Edward Jerningham, were there from 1755 until 1757, Edward Towneley was admitted in 1760, William Witham was there from 1761 until 1762, Sir Piers Mostyn (aged 13) arrived in 1762 and Sir Thomas Tancred a little later. 51 Of the students who commenced at Douai after 1749 and who eventually became priests, thirteen studied at St. Gregory's. Nine of these obtained doctorates of divinity. In addition two students went to St. Gregory's, but proved unsuitable for ordination and so left. 52 In 1786 St. Gregory's was obliged to suspend operations because of financial difficulties. Although this was intended to be only a temporary halt it proved to be the end of the college. For although st. Gregory's maintained a legal existence throughout the period of the French Revolution and for some years afterwards it was never able to resume its educational activities. 53 (d) Esquerchin. In 1753 a preparatory school was opened at Esquerchin, three miles west of Douai, for boys who were too young to enter the lowest school of Rudiments at the English College. The house which accommodated the school was purchased by James Talbot who later became Vicar Apostolic of the London District. The first master there, under James Talbot, was Robert Johnson; he began his duties on 19 November 1753, having previously taught Rudiments at Douai. 54 A document of June 1757 lists three masters at EsquerchinJames Talbot, Robert Johnson and John Taylor-and fourteen boys.55 In May 1768 there were seven boys there. 56 This disproves the theory that the school was abandoned in 1762 when the Douai authorities took over the former Jesuit college at st. Orner and transferred to it the boys from Esquerchin. 57 In fact the school at Esquerchin broke up in November 1772.58 The house itself remained the property of Douai College and was used as a refuge at the time of the French Revolution. 59 50 51 62 53 54 55 66 57

DOUAI COLLEGE DOCUMENTS

The are about sixty references to boys studying at Esquerchin between 1756 and 1772 in the Prefect of Studies Book. The boys usually left Esquerchin for Douai at about the age of 14 or 13. There are references to boys starting at Esquerchin aged no more than six; but probably the majority who went there were in the ten to twelve age group. After the closure of the school at Esquerchin it was apparently the practice to send very young boys who arrived at Douai to what was described as a "French school" (presumably in the town of Douai) for an average of two years before admitting them to Douai College (or, in some cases, to the College of St. Orner). In the Prefect of Studies Book and the Tichborne Blount diary there are about eighteen references to young boys going to the "French school" between 1773 and 1780. For example, Antony (aged nearly six) and Nicholas Power (aged eight) both arrived on 26 May 1772 to go to Esquerchin. When Esquerchin school closed they must have gone, at the end of 1772, to Monsieur Le Comte's French school, from which they went on to Douai College in 1776 and 1775 respectively.60 On 12 August 1780 Charles and John Stonor arrived to attend the "French school"; both went on in April 1781 to St. Omers College, and in July 1783 proceeded to Douai College. 61 Between 1773 and 1775 the "French school" is described as "Monsieur Le Comte's", and from 1775 until 1780 as "Monsieur Adam's". Where the ages of the boys starting at the "French school" are stated they range from nearly six to eleven. (e) St. Orners College. When the Jesuits were expelled from France in 1762 they were obliged to quit St. Omers College which they had founded in 1593. They retired with most of their pupils to Bruges, and the Douai College authorities, because of pressure from the French, reluctantly and with embarrassment agreed to take over St. Omers. On 28 October 1762 five masters arrived at St. Omers from Douai, but because there were no boys to teach three of them returned to Douai on 2 November. School recommenced at St. Omers in 1763 and the number of pupils gradually grew; by 1766 there were :fifty pupils and later the total increased. Despite the difficulties with which it had to contend the school acquired a reasonable reputation, partly because the noted scholar Alban Butler was President from 1766 until his death in 1773. 62 From 1762 onwards there are notes in the Prefect of Studies Book concerning the transfer of pupils to and from St. Omers; but the number involved was not very large. The Jesuit school was at Bruges from 1762 until 1773 when the Society was suppressed. The prince-bishop of Liege offered hospitality to the former Jesuits, and the academy which they set up at Liege bridged the gap between the suppression of the Bruges school T.B., 23, 44, 51.

and the foundation at Stonyhurst in 1794. When the school at Bruges was closed in 1773 the Prefect of Studies Book and the Tichborne Blount diary record the arrival at Douai of twelve students from Bruges; they also record in subsequent years up to 1786 a few transfers to and from the academy at Liege run by the ex-Jesuits. The End of the English College, Douai. The Prefect of Studies Book covers the period which witnessed the end of the English College at Douai. It is indeed one of the two chief authorities for the history of the seizure of the College and the expulsion of the community. The other main authority is the account written by the last VicePresident, Joseph Hodgson (who died in 1821). There are other accounts which fill in details such as that of John Penswick (died 1864),63, that of Dr. William Henry Coombes (died 1850) describing his escape on the way from Douai to Doullens,64 that of Dr. John Gillow, Vice-President of Ushaw College, based on the recollections of his uncle Thomas Gillow (died 1857) who was in his second year of philosophy in 1792,65 and that of Lewis Clifford66 ; but Hodgson's account and the Prefect of Studies Book give the best outline of the whole story. The document by Hodgson was printed in the Catholic Magazine in 1831 67 ; it ended in May 1794 at the time when the members of St. Omers College joined those from Douai College in prison at Doullens. The remainder of the account was, according to L. Dancoisne and according to Bernard Ward, written by William Poynter, Prefect of Studies at Douai from 1787 until 1795, who became Vicar Apostolic of the London District in 1812.68 The numbers at Douai during the 1780s reached the highest point in the eighteenth century history of the College-164 in 1784. On 1 October 1790 there were still 137 persons at Douai College, but then a rapid decline began. At first the progress of the French Revolution had little effect on Douai College since peaceful relations still existed between England and France. But then the community began to be disturbed by the riotous conduct of the troops of the garrison-there was one particularly upsetting episode in May 1791 when a mob of drunken soldiers invaded the College and remained there for a week. 69 As a result of this and other events members of the College began to leave and the numbers fell to 123 in October 1791 and to 102 in October 1792.

The refusal of members of the College to take an oath to accept the civil constitution of the clergy (which had been decreed in July 1790) made the position more difficult. 70 As a result they were closely watched by the authorities and to avoid attracting attention, and also to avoid contact with those clergy who had conformed to the civil constitution, they abandoned their custom of conducting funerals with great public solemnity, and they abstained from participating in processions such as that which took place on the feast of Corpus Christi. 71 By the autumn of 1792 Louis XVI was in prison and the massacres of prisoners in Paris had taken place. Despite their attachment to the College an increasing number of its members saw that the time was coming when they must leave. Nine departed in October 1792 and three in November. 72 Thus by the end of December (allowing for the fact that one boy, Joseph Fountain, had joined Rudiments on 21 December) the number had dropped from 102 at the beginning of the academic year to 91 (or perhaps to 88, for the dates of departure of three persons who left between October 1792 and October 1793 are not known).73 On 21 January 1793 Louis XVI was executed and in February France declared war on England. On 18 February about one hundred armed townsmen entered the College and sealed up the two libraries, the room set aside for mathematical instruments and for physical experiments, the closet adjoining the President's bedroom, and various drawers in the President's and the Procurator's rooms. When the invaders departed three men were left behind to guard the sequestrated property and prevent anything being removed. 74 In the midst of all these alarms eight persons left the College in January, twelve in February and one in March. 75 The defeat of Dumouriez at Nerwinden on 18 March and his retreat into French territory brought the war into the vicinity of Douai. The sound of cannon fire was heard in the town, and on 23 May the French were defeated at Famars. On 13 July, after a siege, Valenciennes (twenty miles east of Douai) was captured by the allies and an attack on the town of Douai itself was expected at any time. The town authorities, on 8 August, therefore issued an order expelling all disaffected persons (including all British subjects) within twenty-four hours .76 Just before this (on 4 and 5 August) Ibid., 18.

five more students had left the College, and five others had been sent to St. Omers College, apparently in the charge of George Simpson the writing master.77 Those remaining in the College procured carts and wagons and between 3 and 4 p.m. on 9 August set out for the country house of the College at Esquerchin, three miles away. The President was allowed to remain in Douai to look after the College (with permission to visit Esquerchin when necessary), and with him was left Thomas Bray (then in Grammar) who was too ill to be moved. Bray remained at Douai until his death there on 30 October 1794. 78 At Esquerchin a study-place, dormitories and other essentials were fitted up and the normal timetable of Douai College was followed. 79 On 1 October 1793 the Prefect of Studies Book listed 54 persons, including Bray who was still at Douai. (In addition to the 32 persons mentioned above who had left in January, February, March and August, three others had left at some date or dates unknown).8o But the full nUIp.ber at Esquerchin was probably 55 because Thomas Berry and James Delaney who are named in the 1792 and 1794 lists (and against whose names there is no note of departure) were for some reason omitted from the 1793 list. The stay at Esquerchin became irksome and the permission of the authorities was asked for the return of the members of the College to Douai. On 8 or 9 October the necessary orders were issued81 ; during the move seven more persons escaped on 12 October. 82 When the remainder arrived back in the town of Douai they found that the College had been used as a storehouse for grain and that the different schoolrooms, the refectory and the study-place had been used for threshing and winnowing. 83 A decree of the National Assembly dated 10 October 1793 ordained the confiscation of ali British goods and the imprisonment of all British subjects in France. So in the afternoon of Saturday, 12 October 1793 officials arrived and sealed up the various parts of the College. Some time after 8 p.m. the members of the College were told to collect their beds, sheets and blankets and move to the Scots College where they were to be imprisoned. 84 Thus for the last time they left the building which had always been affectionately known as Alma Mater. From Sunday, 13 October until Wednesday, 16 October they remained in the Scots College. Then eight wagons and an escort of soldiers arrived to convey the English to prison at Douliens, forty R. Freemont and E. Peach left on 4 August 1793, and W. Davies, T. Haydock and G. Haydock left on 5 August. E. Costello, J. Lopez, A. Amerigo, T. Murphy and M. Langton went to st. Omers. 7S Catholic Magazine, vol. 1, 91 (where Bray's name is wrongly given as Brady). 79 Ibid., 92. so J. Newsham, G. Taylor and T. Cook. S1 Catholic Magazine, vol. 1,94. S2 J. Lancaster, J. Lee, J.

miles south-west of Douai. 85 Two Frenchmen, Henri and Albert Boishamon, who were in Syntax and Rudiments, were allowed to depart to Paris.86 The convoy then set off and after passing the night at Arras arrived at the fortress of Doullens in the evening of 17 October. In the course of the journey four persons had escaped87 so that the total number of those from Douai College who entered the prison at Doullens was 42 (assuming that Berry and Delaney were among them). Conditions were very unpleasant. The rooms were small and overcrowded and the food was bad and insufficient. Sharing the trials of the Douai College contingent were six English Benedictines from the house of St. Gregory at Douai. 88 A regular timetable was followed which was as nearly as possible that which had prevailed at Douai College. The prisoners rose between 6 and 7 a.m., said some prayers, tidied away the beds and swept and aired the rooms. At 7 they went out and washed in an open-air trough-much to the amazement of their guards. They then returned for public prayers in their rooms, followed by breakfast. Study occupied the time until 10 a.m.; then came a short break followed by further study until noon. After dinner there was recreation until 2 p.m., study until 4.30 and then a walk in the open air until their guards ordered them inside at 5 p.m. Study occupied the time until 6 p.m. when prayers were read. After a supper of bread, butter and milk, beds were made about 9 p.m., a litany was said and an examination of conscience was made, and then all retired to bed. 89 Despite great difficulties Mass was celebrated on Sundays and holy days.90 On 16 November 1793 Fran~ois Hay, a native of Brittany, was released to travel to Paris, and on 17 November four students escaped. 91 They managed to obtain from the Bishop of Amiens facuIties for confession for those still at Doullens, and they succeeded in smuggling this news to the prisoners. The news reached them on 24 December and their Christmas Day was a happy one as a result.92 On 15 January 1794 two escaped and on 16 January nine others.93 Only 26 were now left at Doullens from Douai College and these with the six English Benedictines made up the "trente deux" who were specially guarded to ensure that no more escaped. 94 On 15 May 1794 a large contingent of new prisoners reached Catholic Magazine, vol. 1, 97.

PREFECT OF STUDIES BOOK, 1750 155 95 Doullens. Included among them were 65 members of the English College of St. Omers under their President, Gregory Stapleton who had been Procurator at Douai until 1785. 96 Apparently four of the five students who had left Douai for St. Omers in August 1793 in the charge of George Simpson the writing master were of the number because their names and that of Simpson appear on the list of Douai students at Doullens prepared on 1 October 1794. 97 Although the arrival of the St. Omers contingent meant less space for the Douai men, they considered this a small price to pay for the pleasure of their friends' company.98 The execution of Robespierre on 3 July 1794 led to a relaxation of tension. Conditions of imprisonment became less rigorous, and during the months of August and September many of the French prisoners were released from Doullens. But the English suffered from various illnesses and Richard Brettargh, one of the St. Omers' professors, who had been at Douai from 1778 until 1790, died in prison on 24 July 1794. 99 In September 1794 John Daniel, the President, petitioned the Douai authorities for permission to return to the town with the remaining members of the English College. Stapleton sent a similar petition to the authorities of St. Orner. About 20 October the necessary permission arrived from St. Orner and on 23 October twelve professors and fifty-two students left Doullens to return to their college. IOO A month later the Douai contingent were given permission to leave Doullens, and they quitted the prison on 24 November 1794. The Prefect of Studies Book states that they arrived at Douai on 27 November, escorted by dragoons. IOI The six Benedictines were lodged in their own house, and the 26 members of the English College were imprisoned in the former Irish College, which was small and in a ruinous condition. In general however the prisoners' condition was much better than it had been at Doullens because new clothes were provided for them (they had returned in rags), and books and proper mattresses were obtained. Again a proper timetable could be observed and studies pursued in a regular form. The rigours of imprisonment were gradually relaxed. In the middle of December the students were given permission to go out to skate-skating being a recreation to which members of the English College were well-known to be devoted; and from then until their 95

departure from France at the end of February 1795 the English were allowed to take walks in the town and neighbourhood.1 02 They were distressed to see the damage which had been suffered by church property. Their own college had been converted into a military hospital and the church, the hall and the library had all been stripped of their furniture and ornaments. The paintings had all disappeared and the contents of the library had been scattered. Many volumes had been taken to the arsenal in order that their paper might be used for the manufacture of cartridges; several thousand volumes had been incorporated in the library of Douai university; but many rare manuscripts and printed books had been destroyed wantonly by men ignorant of their value. lo3 There was obviously now no hope of continuing the work of the College in France so all attention was concentrated on obtaining permission to return to England. Gregory Stapleton, President of St. Omers College, obtained leave to go to Paris, and after many repulses he persuaded the Directory to issue orders to the magistrates of St. Orner and Douai for the release of the members of the two English Colleges and for the provision of passports in order that they might return to England. The six English Benedictines at Douai were also to be allowed to depart. 104 On 13 February 1795 Stapleton conveyed the good news to the English at Douai. They rescued some of the College plate which had been buried earlier and sold it to meet their debts and the expenses of the forthcoming journey. On 26 February (according to the document in the Catholic Magazine- the Prefect of Studies Book says 25 February) the "trente deux" left Douai and proceeded by wagon to St. Orner, spending a night on the way at Bethune. At St. Orner they joined the members of the English College there, and on Sunday, 1 March, they all left the town for Calais where they arrived in the afternoon. The next morning, Monday, 2 March, the 32 from Douai and the 62 from St. Orner embarked on an American vessel and sailed for Dover where they arrived in the evening. 105 This is not the place to describe how the former members of the English College at Douai provided the foundation members of the colleges at Crook Hall (later Ushaw) and st. Edmund's, Old Hall Green. lOS But the remaining history of the buildings of Douai College must be sketched. They continued to serve as a military hospital until some time after 1804, when the administrator appointed by Napoleon to deal with the property of British establishments in France leased them to a cotton manufacturer for about 27 years. 107 By 1803 the buildings were already in a sad state-the church was filled with hay, the infirmary was in ruins, and the 102 l OS

157 10B refectory was rapidly deteriorating. An ordinance of Louis XVIII dated January 1816 restored the properties of the English colleges to their rightful owners; from that date onwards John Daniel, as surviving President of Douai College, received an annual rent of about ÂŁ100 from the manufacturer who occupied the buildings. 109 A document of 1818 states that the offices and outbuildings had been demolished, and the partitions and interior distribution of the apartments so changed that the place was no longer fit to be used as a college. 110 Therefore when the lease to the cotton manufacturer expired in 1834 the buildings were sold to the French government for the small sum of ÂŁ3200. The buildings survived as a barracks under the name of the Caserne des Grands Anglais until they were demolished in 1926. 111 PREFECT OF STUDIES BOOK, 1750

Editorial Principles. Although, as has been stated above,112 the lists in the Prefect of Studies Book normally show the state of the College on or 'about 1 October of each year, the lists were often written into the book at a somewhat later date. Wherever possible the approximate date of compilation of each list has been indicated in a note. After the list was first made up, additions were made throughout the year recording arrivals, departures, deaths, promotions and other changes. These additions have been printed in italics to distinguish them from the original list. It has not always been possible to identify later entries in this way since doing so often depends upon noting a different handwriting or a different colour of ink, and sometimes the changes are too slight to provide certain evidence of entries being later additions; but as far as possible the distinction has been made. Abbreviated Christian names and titles (such as Dominus and Magister) have not been expanded; but all other abbreviations (where the meaning is certain) have been expanded. In a few places certain signs and numerals have been found impossible to elucidate, and these have been left as they appear in the manuscript. Translations of two extensive Latin passages have been provided, but short phrases and single words have not been translated because their meaning is easily ascertained. The word "Vinea" (vineyard) which occurs frequently means, of course, the English Mission.

In exercitationibus quotidianis ultima semihora, tum matutina tum vespertina, Graecis dabitur. Tres priores in Latinis ita consumendae sunt, ut primum novum thema proponatur, et si quid praeterea vel regularum, vel aliarum rerum scribendum sit; tum themata per Censorem collecta breviter corrigantur; deinde regulae proxime ediscendae explicantur, tum prius traditae recitentur ea cura ac diligentia, ut ne minima quidem errata paenam effugiant; post nova in auctore explicetur lectio: tum ad extremum prius tradita excipiatur, et operose examinetur. 12. Ordo in Latinis praescriptus in Graecis quoque observetur. 13. Caveant Magistri ne vel themata parum accurate corrigant, vel in iis corrigendis adeo inhaereant, ut vel regulis vel auctoribus excipiendis quidquam propterea sit detrahendum: neve regulas, auctoremve breviter, impolite, inornate explicent. Id quod praestare nullo modo possunt, nisi quidquid in scholis dicendum sit, id ilIud secum praemeditatum afferant. [po 4] 14. Themata quae horis scholaribus perlegi commode non poterunt, privatim examinent: et errata discipulis postridie vel proxima lectione denuncient. 15.

Si quis discipulorum inter lectionem imperata non faciat et impositam recuset paenam, Magister non propterea interrumpat lectionem, neque Praefectum advoeet, sed quietum dimittat usque ad finem lectionem vel si pergat molestus esse, ilIum e schola ejierat. Finita vero lectione eundem puniat, et, si opus sit, Superiorem advocet: ejectus autem non admittatur nisi vel prius vapulaverit, vel publicam paenam pro qualitate criminis subierit. 18. In pensis diseipulorum exigendis severitate utantur, et in suis persolvendis diligentia. 19. Colloquia, versus, orationes, dramata, et alia quaevis exereitationum genera (sive usitata fuerint, sive extra ordinem pro varia temporum occasione [po 5] a superioribus imposita) tempestive absolvant: et omnino omnia quae ab iisdem, sive scripto sive viva voce injuncta fuerint, diligentia accuratissima perficiant. 20. Si quid palam recitandum sit, quod vel ipsi vel eorum discipuli composuerint, Praefeeti Studiorum judicio et correctioni submittent, cujus decretis in omnibus parebunt: nee quidquam faeere vel omittere in scholis sibi assument contra quam ab ipso praescriptum fuerit. 21. Statas habeant paenas, tum in Graecis, tum in Latinis, imponendas iis, qui contra regulas, vel eodem, vel superiore aliquo anna traditas, peeeaverint: easque ita repetant, ut nullus gratiae, nullus miserieordiae locus esse possit.

Quo melius vires suorum intelligant, praesertim vero eum ad novum aliquod exercitationis genus transeundum fuerit, curandum est, de consilio Praefecti Studiorum, ut in scholis themata nonnunquam privatim componantur, tanto tempore quantum satis esse videbitur, ut quisque quid valeat, constare possit. 26. Compositiones quoque longiores, de ejusdem consilio, singulis annis discipulis provectionibus aliquoties imperabunt, statis temporibus e suggestu vel aliter recitandas. 27.

The "Signum" or token was apparently a badge worn by a pupil who either had not spoken in Latin when required to do so, or had spoken it incorrectly. The signum was transferred from one offender to another, and whoever had it at a given time was punished.

Meminerint praeceptores neque ulla in re magis necessariam esse prudentiam, neque graviores unquam magistrorum lapsus esse solere, quem in imponendis paenis.

[Page 11 is blank] TRANSLATION Rules for Masters teaching the Humanities. 1. The masters must know that each is charged by God and by the College to aid and promote the education of their pupils by every means, and that they should direct all their efforts to carrying out this duty fully and completely, not with a view to appearances but inasmuch as they will have to account strictly to God if owing to their negligence or folly those who are in their charge do not profit by their teaching. 2. At the given signal they must all, without delay, repair to the schoolrooms. Likewise, at the very moment when the bell sounds all must quit the schoolrooms together. If, because of the abrupt end of a lesson, anything of great importance remains uncompleted, this work should be finished before anything else is begun when the students return to the classroom. 3. The masters are to take care that before they themselves enter the schoolroom the censors collect the themes and, after the prayer to the Holy Ghost has been said, hand them in, giving the names of those who are absent and the names of those present who have not handed in themes. The names of those who come in after the master are to be noted as late-comers. The names of those who are absent fifteen minutes after the bell has sounded are to be reported to the Prefect General, whose duty it will be to see that they are sent into class without further trouble to the master. 4. No-one shall ever omit, shorten, lengthen, defer, anticipate or in any way change the times allocated to classes unless a superior has given express permission for this to be done. 5. The masters shall be present in the schoolroom whenever the De Imperio competition is in progress, or when any other exercise is ordered by the Prefect of Studies. 6. They are to have registers in which they must note instances of carelessness, impudence and other faults on the part of their pupils. M


166

DOUAI COLLEGE DOCUMENTS

After the evening lesson on Wednesdays they must take these registers to the Prefect of Studies so that he may see who has done well and and who badly. 7. Each week all the masters will meet the Prefect of Studies at a time and place determined by him. Then they will first report how they have carried out the orders which the Prefect gave them the previous week, whether all went smoothly, and if anything went wrong what the reason was. Then they will receive their instructions from the Prefect for the coming week. This is if any problems occur. 8. They must take care that themes are not only composed correctly in good Latin, but also written properly and elegantly, without blots, on paper of the prescribed size, and with the divisions marked. 9. If anyone is summoned from the schoolroom, the master must not permit him to go out unless he has first ascertained who sent the summons, how long the student will be absent, and whether the reason for the summons is adequate. 10. In the schoolroom the master must preserve a serious demeanour, and he must ensure that his pupils behave properly and modestly and keep silence. 11. In class each day the last half-hour, both in the morning and in the evening, will be devoted to Greek. The first three hours are to be occupied in the study of Latin, as follows. First a new theme is to be set, with any rules or other points which are to be written down. Then the themes which the censor has collected are to be briefly corrected. The next rules to be learned must be explained, and those previously taught recited carefully and thoroughly, so that not the least errors escape punishment. Afterwards the passage of the set book is to be explained. Finally the passage which was set at the last lesson is to be taken and carefully examined. 12. The order prescribed for Latin lessons is also to be followed in Greek lessons. 13. The masters must take care neither to correct the themes with insufficient care, nor to spend so long over them that there is not enough time to hear the rules or the set authors. They must not explain the rules and the passages from set works too briefly, too baldly or in a slovenly fashion. They must give thought beforehand to those points which must be mentioned in class if they are to be coped with. 14. They should read in their own time those themes which cannot be dealt with during school hours. They must point out any errors to their pupils either the next day or during the next class. 15. No themes are to be prescribed to the students which have not first been generally approved by the Prefect of Studies. 16. Fair copies of themes (which are commonly called Correctoria) rules, elegant phrases, in short anything which is to be written in the school must be approved by the Prefect of Studies before publication. 17. If any pupil during the lesson does not obey orders and refuses to submit to the penalty imposed upon him, the master should not on that account interrupt the class, nor call the Prefect, but quietly ignore


PREFECT OF STUDIES BOOK, 1750

167

him until the end of the lesson, or if he continues to be a nuisance eject him from the schoolroom. When the lesson is over the master should punish the culprit, and if necessary, call a superior. Anyone sent out should not be re-admitted unless he has either been beaten, or has undergone a public penance proportionate to the offence. 18. The masters are to be strict in setting tasks for their pupils and diligent in performing their own duties. . 19. Colloquies, verses, speeches, plays and other kinds of exercises (either the normal ones or those decided upon by superiors for special occasions) are to be performed at the proper time, and everything which the superiors impose, whether oral or written, must be accorded the utmost accuracy and care. 20. If anything is to be recited in public, which either the master or his pupils have composed, it is to be submitted to the judgement and correction of the Prefect of Studies whose decisions shall be complied with in all respects. Neither shall the masters take it upon themselves to do or omit anything in class contrary to the orders of the Prefect. 21. They are to impose prescribed penalties, both in the Greek and Latin classes, on those who offend against the rules taught either in the current year or in any previous year . No culprit should escape punishment either because of favour or because of pity. 22. Almost every week some time is to be devoted to dictating to the pupils, phrases and precepts collected out of approved authors by the master during his private study. 23. At the beginning of each year those who have charge of Rhetoric and Poetry are to instruct their pupils in the method of saluting guests, and congratulating priests who have celebrated their first Mass. They will always have ready some appropriate speeches, in Latin at least, of either their own, or their pupils' composition lest some unexpected occasion should take them by surprise. ' 24. When a Rhetorician delivers an oration the master will pay special attention to the following:-1. The force of the argument, and the way it is developed, the style, the similes, etc. 2. The suitability, elegance and rhythm of the words. 3. The habits and customs of the ancients which it is necessary to know. When a Poet speaks the master will observe chiefly the inventive power, the ability to de velop the theme, the diction, the knowledge of ancient customs, and the more brilliant flashes of intellect. In the lower classes the masters must particularly note whether words are used correctly and with elegance. 25. In order that they may the better evaluate the abilities of their pupils, especially when a new type of exercise is to be begun, the masters should take care, in consultation with the Prefect of Studies, that themes are sometimes composed privately in class, sufficient time being allowed, so that each can demonstrate his proficiency. 26. The masters will also, after taking the advice of the Prefect of Studies, require the more advanced pupils to produce longer compositions each year. These will be recited at appointed times from a platform or elsewhere.


168

DOUAl COLLEGE DOCUMENTS

27. At the end of the month, ifpossible on the Wednesday or Saturday, with the consent of the Prefect of Studies, the contest De Imperio will take place, in the morning for Greek and in the afternoon for Latin. So at the beginning of the next month, the position of each will be announced publicly and prizes will be distributed. 28. In assigning places justice and merit should be strictly observed. A careful account of the order of merit should be given to the Prefect of Studies, together with the monthly themes. 29. When they have reached the end of a book or author, and some days have been devoted to revision the master will inform the Prefect of Studies that his pupils are ready to be examined on that book or author. It is for the Prefect of Studies to judge whether several books of the same author, or even of several authors, shall be gone over and discussed at the same time, in order to avoid too frequent examinations. 30. All masters must see that a familiarity with the Latin tongue is inculcated in their pupils to their utmost capacity. 31. Whenever it is necessary to go out of school they must carefully enquire about the Signum, so that if there is any suspicion of a pact regarding its transfer, they must diligently enquire into the matter and report it to the Prefect of Studies whose duty it will be to decide upon a special penalty. 32. If it is discovered that anyone has denied falsely and knowingly that he has used a forbidden language he is to be whipped. For it is not to be imagined that any older pupil will do this. 33. At times appointed by the Prefect of Studies those who are in Rhetoric, Poetry and Syntax are to speak Latin in class while Latin is being taught, and Greek while Greek is being taught. 34. The masters are to remember that never is there need for greater prudence, nor is an error ever more serious, than in the matter of imposing punishments. They should therefore beware lest, in order to become popular, they impair discipline, and by wishing to appear the protectors of their pupils, harm each one individually and the community in general. Furthermore, in order to safeguard their reputation and their authority, they must never when imposing penalties think rather of the injuries which they may have suffered than of the benefit to their pupils. 35. They must never, without the gravest cause, either impose or threaten the more severe punishments, such as expulsion from the classroom, whippings for adults, or other things of that kind. 36. When they either impose or administer a punishment they must behave so calmly that all may see either that they are not acting in anger, or that if they are, nevertheless reason is still in command. 37. Both inside and outside the schoolroom they must behave so impartially to their pupils that no suspicion of favouritism can arise. For each must realise that unless he acquires and cherishes a good reputation in this respect, his pupils will lose heart for their studies, or entirely give up. 38. Masters must make every effort to behave charitably to each other,


PREFECT OF STUDIES BOOK, 1750

169

and look after each other's interests. They must not alienate any pupil from his master or defend a pupil against his master. 39. In order that our pupils may learn to pronounce Greek and Latin words correctly, if there is any time left over after the daily examination of the Greek or Latin author, it will be useful for some, from time to time, to read in a clear and distinct voice. This is especially important for those who have an awkward or incorrect pronunciation. It should be a prime concern of the masters that all the letters, especially the vowels, should be enunciated correctly and that everything should be read intelligently according to the sense and the punctuation. 40. All masters should remember that they ought to devote themselves to the welfare of their pupils no less in the time outside class than during school time. For whatever time is devoted in the Constitutions of the College to the private studies of masters and pupils is allocated so that both parties may come into class as well prepared as possible. 41. The last hour of Saturday afternoon school is to be occupied in reading that Christian work entitled the Catechism, and in training the pupils in piety. Moreover masters are never to release them from the classroom until the customary short prayer has been said. 42. Rather longer religious instructions should be given at least on the Vigils of the Nativity, Palm Sunday, Pentecost and the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin. 43. Any masters who have unexpurgated works of ancient authors should not permit their pupils to read them without the consent of a superior. 44. The word "Superior" in these rules means either the President, the Vice-President or the Prefect of Studies. 45. The masters, especially those of Syntax, Grammar and Rudiments, must take great care that their pupils write well and with sufficient elegance. 46. They must always note and warn their pupils if they spell English words incorrectly. 47. Once at least, or twice each week the masters of Syntax and Grammar are to give their pupils an extract from some book approved by the Prefect of Studies to be translated from Latin into English. 1750.

This list is in the handwriting of William Green vere Scott, who returned to Douai on 17 Oct. 1749 to be Professor of Theology and Prefect of Studies. He was appointed President on 7 July 1750. (7th D.D., 260, 264.) The list was all written at the same time; there were no later additions. The date on p. 38 could be read as "Jan. 3"; but the fact that it is really "June 3" is proved by the following points: 1. William Thornburgh, the thirteenth President, died on 4 March 1750. This fact was recorded when the list was written out, and not at a later date. 2. George and William Gibson (both in Rudiments IV) , who came on 5 April 1750 (7th D.D., 263) are included. 3. Gerard Strickland who arrived on 19 July 1750 (7th D.D., 264) is not included. He appears in the Oct. 1750 list in Rudiments ill & IV. 4. Francis Dillon who left on 19 May 1750 (7th D.D., 264) has a note against his name-"nuper discessit". The equivalent list in the 7th D.D. is that which appears on pp. 268- 70. This is, as it states, a list made out on 1 Jan. 1750, with offices and classes set out as they were on 1 Oct. 1749. Additions were made concerning events in the year 1750, until the list was inserted in the Diary at the end of Dec. 1750. The numbers at Douai in June 1750, as given in the P.S.B., were as follows: 9 Poetry 6 Seniors Professors 10 Syntax 9 Theology 14 Grammar 12 Philosophy II 4 Rudiments I 15 Philosophy I 0 II 12 Rhetoric 5 III 16 Total 112 Left for England because of ill-health, 27 July 1750. (7th D.D., 265.) Left for England, 27 July 1750; returned 18 Sept. 1750. (Ibid., 265, 266.) George Douglas, second and last Earl of Dunbarton. Born c. April 1687. Succeeded his father (who died at St. Germain-en-Laye), 20 March 1691/2. Came to Douai as a convictor, 13 May 1749. Left, 8 Aug. 1750, for the college of the Scots Jesuits at Douai. Died there, 6 Jan. 1752. (G.E.C., Complete Peerage, vol. 4, 515-6; 7th D.D., 258, 265, 282.) 185

(Ibid., 263.) 1 This list is in the handwriting of William Green, who continued to hold the office of Prefect of Studies although he had become President. (7th D.D., 271.) He must have continued as Prefect of Studies until almost the end of the academic year, since a new hand does not appear until Sept. 1751. The original list must have been written out before 2 Oct. 1750, since Signor Crivelli who appeared on the list as a convictor (p. 42) until the entry was deleted, left on that date. (7th D.D., 266.) The equivalent list in the 7th D .D ., is that which appears on pp. 271- 3. This is, as it states, a correct list for Jan. 1751-that is, it represents the list for Oct. 1750 with corrections made up to Jan. 1751. The numbers at Douai in Oct. 1750, as given in the P.S.B., were as follows: Seniors 7 Poetry 8 Syntax 11 Professors 7 Theology 15 Grammar 14 Philosophy II Rudiments I 17 Philosophy I 5 II 12 Rhetoric 8 III & IV 11 Total 115, and 9 servants. 2 On 7 Nov. 1750 news arrived from England that John Dunn was too ill to return and resume his duties as Professor of Theology. (7th D.D., 266, 267.) 3 Appointed Professor of Theology, 8 Nov. 1750. (Ibid., 267.)

The original list must have been written out before 13 Oct. 1751, since it includes Henry Wilkens (Syntax) who left for Lisbon on that date. (7th D.D.,281.) The name of Charles Corne (Theology) who arrived on 14 Oct. (7th D.D., 281), was added after the list was first written. Although Nicholas Stapylton vere Clavering was in England from August until 22 Nov. 1751 (7th D.D., 278, 282) his name was included when the list was first compiled. The equivalent list in the 7th D.D., appears on pp. 279-81.

(Ibid., 288.) 4 3 Arrived, 21 May 1752. (Ibid.) 1 This list is in the handwriting of John Lodge. It must have been written out after 16 Oct., since it does not contain the name of James King, formerly Professor of Theology, who left on that date. (7th D .D ., 291.) Since the name of Francis Kempson (Rudiments II) who came on 8 Nov. 1752 was added after the list was originally compiled this fact provides a terminal date for its composition. The equivalent list in the 7th D.D. appears on pp. 288-90. The numbers at Douai in Oct 1752, as given in the P.S.B., were as follows: 12 Poetry 9 Seniors 12 Professors 8 Syntax Theology 10 Grammar 16 Philosophy II 4 Rudiments I 17 Philosophy I 6 II 13 Rhetoric 6 III 13 Total 126 The 7th D.D. includes James King amongst the Seniors, making the total for this group 13. The total in the 7th D.D. is therefore 127, although it is given incorrectly as 125. 2 Left for England, 3 July 1753. (7th D.D., 293 .) 3 Left for England, 20 Aug. 1753.

(Ibid., 293.) aD Arrived, 23 June 1753. (Ibid., 292.) 1 This list is in the handwriting of John Lodge. The same hand made all the additions until Sept. 1754, so Lodge was presumably Prefect of Studies until the end of the academic year. The list was apparently compiled before 12 Oct. when Robert Wilkinson (Grammar) died. The note recording his death was added later. The equivalent list in the 7th D.D. appears on pp. 295-7. This was compiled after 12 Oct. since Robert Wilkinson's name was omitted, and the arrangement of names in the three classes of Rudiments was different from that in the P.S.B. The numbers at Douai in Oct. 1753, as given in the P.S.B., were as follows: Seniors 9 Poetry 13 Professors 9 Syntax 13 Theology 9 Grammar 12 Philosophy II 6 Rudiments I 17 Philosophy I 6 II 9 III 4 Rhetoric 6 Total 113 S Also Prefect of Studies.

The list was probably written about 15 Oct., since the additions up to that date at the end of the main list, appear to have been written at the time when the list itself was prepared.

The climacteric years were supposed to be certain years in a man's life which especially affected him as regards health and general circumstances. These years were made up by the odd multiples of seven (e.g. 49), and the grand climacteric was reached at 63. Francis Petre vere Squibb, attained his sixtythird birthday on 25 Sept. 1754.

Came to Douai, 28 Sept. 1764. (Ibid., 25.) This list is in the handwriting of Mathew Gibson, Prefect of Studies. All the additional notes are in the hand of James Nicolas, Professor of Rhetoric. The original list was compiled in Oct. 1765, since the name of Charles Berington (philosophy II), who left for Paris in that month, was included in the list and then deleted. There were apparently many changes before the composition of the Rudiments' classes was eventually settled. The numbers at Douai on 1 Oct. 1765 were as follows: Seniors 7 Poetry 8 Professors 8 Syntax 10 Theology 14 Grammar 9 Philosophy II 7 Rudiments I 11 Philosophy I 7 II 6 Rhetoric 12 Remainder 13 Total 112

Arrived at Douai, 1 June 1767. (B.P., 240.) This list is in the handwriting of Robert Banister, Professor of Theology. Mathew Gibson continued to be Prefect of Studies during most of this. academic year, but he left because of ill-health on 17 July 1768, and Banister took over the duties of Prefect of Studies. He probably found that the list for Oct. 1767 had not been made up by Gibson, so he compiled it in Sept. or Oct. 1768. All the entries about events between Oct. 1767 and Sept. 1768 were made at the time when the main list itself was written. The numbers at Douai in Oct. 1767 were as follows: Seniors 7 Poetry 8 Syntax 10 Professors 7 Theology 18 Grammar 9 8 Rudiments I 11 Philosophy II Philosophy I 5 II 7 Rhetoric 9 Remainder 14 Total 113

It is not known who wrote out this list. Although Robert Banister returned

to Douai to be Vice-President, Professor of Theology and Prefect of Studies, he did not arrive until 28 Oct. When the list was compiled the words "mox .venturus" were added after his name. The notes added to the list from 4 Nov. 1773 until 7 May 1774 are in Banister's hand. He left Douai on 3 June 1774. The notes from 9 July onwards are in the hand of John Daniel who was the next Prefect of Studies. The original list was compiled before 19 Oct. 1773 since William Simmons (Plowden) who arrived on that date is not included in the class lists. The numbers at Douai on 1 Oct. 1773 were as follows: Seniors 7 Poetry 12 Professors 8 Syntax 8 17 Grammar 15 Theology Philosophy II 5 Rudiments I 16 Philosophy I 8 II 9 III 10 Rhetoric 7 Remainder 10 Total 132 2 Also entered supra as a Senior.

Last appeared in Poetry in the list of Oct. 1775 (p. 268 of P.S.B.). This list is in the handwriting of Ralph Southworth, Prefect of Studies. It was compiled before 4 Oct. 1778, since John Nassau who arrived on that date was entered in the list of Syntaxians after the list was originally made up. It should be noted however that William Pool (Theology) who also returned to Douai on 4 Oct. was included in the list of Theologians at the time when it was originally compiled; this is probably explained by the fact that he had left for only a short visit to England on 18 June 1778 (T.B., 59). The numbers at Douai on 1 Oct. 1778 (excluding Pool) were as follows: Poetry 8 Seniors 7 Professors 9 Syntax 6 15 Grammar 11 Theology Philosophy II 10 Rudiments I 13 Philosophy I 5 II 14 Rhetoric 6 Remainder 11 Total 115

Probably Joseph and Henry Nelson were two members of the class of Reliqui; but it may be that they are recorded here as arrivals at Douai after A. Verknocker, who came on 19 April 1782. This list is in the handwriting of John Gillow, Prefect of Studies. It was compiled before 20 Oct. 1782, since the fact that Joseph Wilson (Syntax) left on that date was added after the list was originally made up. The numbers at Douai in the early part of October 1782 were as follows: Seniors 8 Poetry 16 Professors 8 Syntax 12 Theology 17 Grammar 12 Philosophy II 6 Rudiments I 10 Philosophy I 10 II 10 Rhetoric 10 III 8 18 Remainder Total 145 This note, which was added after the list was originally compiled, should have been inserted on p. 303, of the P.S.B. since the President arrived at Douai on 30 May 1781.

He had left for the Mission on 3 April 1781 (p. 299 of P.S.B.). It is not clear whether this note applies to Fannan or to Corbun. Taylor arrived from Rome on 22 Oct. 1783, not 1782. (See infra p. 321 of P.S.B.)

Last appeared in Theology in the list of Oct. 1774 (p. 256 of P.S.B.). This list is in the handwriting of John Gillow, Prefect of Studies. On 20 March 1785 Joseph Hodgson was made Prefect of Studies; it was presumably his hand which added the notes made between 15 April and 29 July. A third hand (which appears again in the list dated Oct. 1785) added the notes for 21 to 29 Sept. A note dated 29 Sept. 1785 records the return of John Gillow; so presumably he left Douai in March, and returned in September. Hodgson was Prefect of Studies while he was away ; but in September Hodgson himself must have been away or otherwise prevented from making up the Prefect of Studies Book, and so an unknown person undertook that duty. The original list was compiled before 2 Oct. 1784, since the note of that date appended to the name of James Dannel (Rudiments II) was added after the list was originally made up. The numbers at Douai on 1 Oct. 1784 were as follows:

They were in different classes until Oct. 1787 when both were in Syntax. Both were in Poetry in 1788 and in Rhetoric in 1789. One left on 19 April 1790, and the other proceeded to Philosophy I in Oct. 1790, and left on 9 July 1791. 1

The original list was compiled before 2 Oct. 1785, since Edward Philips who arrived on that date is not included in the class lists.

This list is in the handwriting of William Poynter, Prefect of Studies. The original list was compiled after 6 Oct. 1790, since the note recording the departure of Thomas Sanderson (Senior) on that date was made at the time when the list was compiled ; and it must have been written out before 16 Oct. 1790 since Charles Brannan who returned on that date appears as a late entry in Logic. The numbers at Douai on 1 Oct. 1790 were as follows: Seniors 9 Poetry 10 Professors 8 Syntax 11 Theology 20 Grammar 21 Philosophy II 6 Rudiments I 14 Philosophy I 5 II 13 Rhetoric 13 Remainder 7 Total 137 (the P.S.B. on p. 395 gives the total for later in Oct. as 140)

DOUAI COLLEGE DOCUMENTS

[po 418] Catalogus eorum qui hac die prima Octobris 1794 in interiore arce Doullensi pro Collegio degunt. 1 J oa. Daniel. J os. Hodgson. Gul. Poynter. Tho. Smith. Jos. Beaumont. Tho. Stout. Gul. Wilds. Geo. Simpson. 1

This list is in the handwriting of William Poynter. It was compiled on 1 Oct. 1794 when the remaining members of the English College, Douai, were imprisoned at D ouIlens. The situation was apparently as follows . There were seven Seniors (Daniel, Hodgson, Poynter, Smith, Beaumont, Stout and Wilds). The name of George Simpson, the writing master, did not appear in the list dated Oct. 1793. It is probable that he went to St. Omers College when he left Douai on 4 Aug. 1793, and that he had arrived at the prison of Doullens with the staff and students of St. Omers who were sent there in May 1794. For the four juniors (Lopez, Amerigo, Langton and Murphy) who appear in this list but were not included in the list of Oct. 1793 left Douai for st. Omers on 4 Aug. 1793-i.e. the same day on which Simpson left Douai. So Simpson and they should not be counted as part of the Douai contingent who were imprisoned at Doullens from Oct. 1793 until Nov. 1794. William Croskell was a Professor in 1793; he was presumably also a Professor in 1794. The two others grouped with him, Berry and Delaney were listed as third year Theologians in the Oct. 1792 list; and did not appear in the Oct. 1793 list. Presumably they are also to be regarded as Professors. Dowling was a third year Theologian in Oct. 1793, Broderick and Harrison were in Philosophy II and Havard was in Philosophy I. So presumably this group represented the Theologians in Oct. 1794. Sims was in Philosophy I in Oct. 1793, and is therefore to be counted the sole second year Philosopher in 1794. The two Cliffords, Swinburn and Davies were in Rhetoric in Oct. 1793; so they represent Philosophy I in 1794. Penswick and Forster were in Syntax in 1793, and Bulbeck and Gradwell were in Grammar. So this group must represent Poetry in 1794. Brannan and Arkwright, who were in Grammar in 1793, were the Syntaxians in 1794. As has been mentioned above, Lopez, Amerigo, Langton and Murphy were not really part of the Douai contingent at Doullens, and on 23 Oct. 1794 they left to return to St. Orner. Joseph Fountain, who was in Rudiments III in 1793, was the sole representative of Rudiments at Doullens in Oct. 1794. The above calculations produce the following figures: Seniors 7 Philosophy I 4 Professors 3 Poetry 4 Theology 4 Syntax 2 1 Rudiments 1 Philosophy II Total 26 These 26 persons, together with six Benedictines from the English house of St. Gregory at Douai, made up the "trente-deux" who returned to England in March 1795.

These three names appear to be in the handwriting of Mathew Gibson, Prefect of Studies from 1761 until 1768. Tasker first appeared in the list of Oct. 1765 (p. 189 of P.S.B.) and Fisher and Greenway in the list of Oct. 1766 (p. 197 of P.S.B.).


DIARY OF HENRY TICHBORNE BLOUNT 1770-81.

This diary measures approximately eight inches by six inches, and is bound in grey leather. It contains 334 pages of which the last 252 are blank. When Edwin Burton (who died in 1925) transcribed the manuscript it was in the archives of the Archbishop of Westminster. In 1970 it was at St. Edmund's College, Old Hall Green. The compiler of the diary was Henry Tichborne Blount, President of Douai College from 1770 until 1780. 1 He was born on 6 December 1723, the second son of Michael Blount (1693- 1739) of Mapledurham, Oxfordshire and Mary Agnes (1695-1777), daughter and one of the co-heiresses of Sir Henry Joseph Tichborne, fourth Baronet, of Tichborne, Hampshire. The other children of Michael and Mary Agnes Blount were Michael (1719-92) who married Mary, daughter of Mannock Strickland, the well-known conveyancer; Walter (1727-46) who became a Benedictine at St. Gregory's, Douai, and took the name Maurus;2 Mary (1716-99) who married her relative Sir Henry Tichborne, sixth Baronet, of Tichborne;3 and Frances (1717-40) who entered the Benedictine convent at Brussels in 1734 and took the name Henrietta. 4 Henry Tichborne Blount arrived at Douai on 7 May 1740 and a year later defended his philosophical thesis. On 19 August 1743 he went to the English Carthusians at Nieuport to see whether his health was robust enough to permit him to enter that order. Apparently it was not, for he returned to Douai College, became a subdeacon on 24 May 1747, a deacon on 23 September 1747 and was ordained priest in March 1748. On 3 September 1748 he was sent to England. He had never taken the Mission oath for he was described in the note recording his departure as "convictor", not "alumnus". 5 In 1750 he travelled to France and lived at Angers until the summer of 1751 when he made an excursion to northern Italy. He returned to France and in May 1752 he became second chaplain to the English Poor Clares at Rouen. In 1758 he went to Esquerchin and replaced James Talbot as master at the school when the latter was appointed coadjutor to Bishop Challoner in 1759. Most of the following sketch of Tichborne Blount's life has been taken from Sir A.

TICHBORNE BLOUNT'S DIARY

341

When in 1762 the English secular clergy reluctantly agreed to take over St. Omers College on the expulsion of the Jesuits, Thomas Talbot was appointed President and since he could not leave England until November, Henry Tichborne Blount agreed to be his representative and went to st. Omers in October 1762 to take possession of the college on behalf of the secular clergy. He was there from 6 October until 2 November. He then returned to Esquerchin. 6 On leaving Esquerchin he lived with Bishop James Talbot in London until he was appointed President of Douai College in 1770. He assumed the office in August and held it until his resignation in 1780. He apparently returned to England in 1781 after William Gibson had succeeded him; Gibson was installed on 1 July 1781. 7 In the meantime Bishop Challoner had died in January 1781, and in the private instructions annexed to his will he left a guinea each to various "good friends" amongst whom Tichborne Blount was included. s In September 1783 Tichborne Blount went to st. Gregory's, Paris to live there as a pensioner. 9 At some later date he went to live at the convent of the English Austin Canonesses in Louvain, and accompanied them when they returned to England in 1794. 10 From 1796 until February 1806 he lived with his relative, Mrs. Frances Biddulph. He then moved to Mapledurham to live with his nephew Michael Blount, and remained there until his death on 29 March 1810, aged 86. A portrait of him is reproduced opposite page 56 of volume two of E. Burton's Life and Times of Bishop Challoner. The Tichborne Blount diary duplicates much information about arrivals, departures, promotions and other changes which appears in the Prefect of Studies Book. It does however contain other information, such as the dates and places of ordination of various priests, notes on the modernization and improvement of the College buildings, an account of the troubles involving Joseph Berington whose philosophical teaching came under attack, the real names and aliases of various students and their places of origin, and the reasons why some students left the College before completing their courses. In editing the diary abbreviations have been expanded, except in the case of Christian names and titles. Where blanks had been left in the manuscript the missing information has been supplied in square brackets wherever possible.

[p.71.] The above draft, dear Sir, is for the use of Mr. Peach,53 in consequence of the Prior's letter, which you sent by Mr. Varley. As to Mr. Lamb 54 I have no objection to his being in the Arras seminary bU,t hope you will make my last remittance in his favour go as far as it can. Hawke 55 is so much mended in his health that finding good Mr. Sone is tired of keeping him I have resolved to try him in Mr. Knapp's place in Herts after the Whitsun holydays. But as Mr. Platt has a vocation to the same kind of life he may do for Lisbon, to which place we must send this summer a master for the lower schools together with a Vice President, for which post I shall propose good Mr. Southworth,56 who is now in the same capacity with you to Mr. Wm. Gibson, if I see him in his passage. I forgot before to desire you to inform the Newport Fathers 57 of good B.-- C.- -'s [?Bishop Challoner's] death, and of his aggregation to their Order, etc. If you hear of Mr. Edw. Ball,58 and can conveniently you may remit to him 300 livres which I will account for on demand. Have heard from Mr. Stonor, and am, etc. J as.

The reference to the "passage" of William Gibson probably refers to Gibson's journey to Douai to take up the post of President; he arrived at Douai on 30 May 1781.

APPENDIX B PRIESTS CONNECTED WITH THE ENGLISH COLL EGE DOVAI, 1750-94.

These biographical notes relate to the 273 priests who were connected with Douai during the period from 1750 to 1794-the years covered by the Prefect of Studies Book. They are only intended to help to identify the persons concerned, and are not to be taken as attempts at full outlines of the lives of the priests in question. The 213 w.hose names are not preceded by an asterisk are those who began their training at Douai after 1 January 1750. Some of these of course completed their training at other colleges on the Continent, or in England after the closure of Douai College. The 60 whose names are preceded by an asterisk fall into one or more of the following categories: (i) those who began their training at Douai before 1750 (ii) priests who taught at Douai College after 1750, but who were not trained there (iii) priests who visited Douai after 1750, but were not trained there. It is possible that some priests who received part of their training at Douai College have been overlooked in these notes. For example, James Akers who arrived at the English College, Lisbon in 1782 and was ordained in 1788 may be the same James Akers who was in Rudiments at Douai from 1773 until 1776; but no evidence has been found to confirm or deny this. On the other hand the following students seem to have completed, or almost completed the theological course, but do not seem to have been ordained priests: Antony Morin John Powell John Saunderson William Taylor John Yates. Abbreviations have been freely used in these notes and the following should be specially noted: B.P. Book of Pensioners of Douai College, 1758-90. (MS. at St. Edmund's College.) C.A.R. Catholic Annual Register, 1850. H.P. Haydock Papers, edited by J. Gillow. L.D. Laity's Directory.l 1

This annual publication has been searched for evidence regarding the places where the priests mentioned were stationed. Since in the case of most of the priests involved many volumes provide relevant information it has not usually been practical to specify the dates of the issues in question. 383

INDEX 1. Similiif surnames with variations in spelling have been grouped together, and persons arranged under such headings in order of their Christian names. 2. Persons with the same Christian and surnames have been listed in approximately chronological order, and numbered 1,2, 3, etc. 3. A"?" following a page reference indicates doubt as to whether the reference properly applies to the person in question. 4. An asterisk (*) signifies more than one entry on a page. 5 Footnotes are indicated by the abbreviation "n" . 6. Priests are indicated by the abbreviation "Rev.", for the Reverend. If there is some doubt as to whether a particular person was a priest, a "?" follows the word "Rev." It should be noted that not all priests have necessarily been identified. 7. It has proved impossible to be consistent when deciding whether to enter a person under his true name or under his alias. As far as possible the form used most frequently has been adopted; cross-references have always been given from other forms . . 8. In cases where a particular person has appeared with different Christian names the following rules have been followed. If it is quite uncertain which is the correct name the form " John or Thomas" has been used. Where one name is probably the correct one, the other name has been put in parentheses-"John (or Thomas)". Where one name is certainly wrong the form "John (also incorrectly as Thomas)" has been used. 9. In the case of Appendix B, only the subject of each biographical note has been indexed. Other personal names and place names have not been indexed. 10. The authors of the books listed on pp. 158-60 and 170-84 have not been indexed.
