Postcards of the Past


Pembroke College, Cambridge


Towards the end of 1347, Edward III granted Marie de St Pol, widow of the Earl of Pembroke, the licence for the foundation of a new educational establishment at Cambridge. The Hall of Valence Mary, as it was originally known, was thus founded to house a body of students and fellows. The college was later renamed Pembroke Hall, and in 1856 became Pembroke College. Preference was given to students born in France who had already studied elsewhere in England.
