“St. Edmund Hall, said to have been founded in 1226 by St, Edmund Rich, afterwards Archbp. of Canterbury; it was refounded in 1559. The existing buildings are not older than the 17th cent ; the Chapel and Library, 1680, form a singular composition in the classic style. Thos. Hearne the Oxford antiquary (whose tomb is in St. Peler's churchyard). Sir Richard Blackstone, and Dr. Wilson, Bp. of Calcutta, were members of this Hall. Six of its students were expelled in 1761 for ‘Methodistical’ practices.” — Alden's Oxford Guide.
