Eton College N/A

Eton College was founded by King Henry VI, who granted it a charter on the 11 October 1440. He laid the foundation stone of the first building, the chapel, on Passion Sunday 1441, but did not live to see its completion. Provost William Waynflete finished it at his own expence. Edward IV took away part of the endowments. The original foundation was for a Provost, ten priests, four clerks, six choristers, twenty five poor and needy scholars to learn grammar there, and twenty five poor and disabled men to pray for the souls of the founder's father and mother, and all his forefathers, also a master to teach the said needy scholars. New statutes were made in 1443 for Eton and King's College Cambridge, tying the school and the college together in the same way as Winchester School and New College, Oxford were tied, and also enlarging the foundation to include 70 scholars, 20 commoners, sons of rich or noble parents, and 13 servitors, to be given their board and tuition in return for acting as servants to the Fellows and Headmaster.
