Founder watched a small seed grow Elizabeth Wordsworth founded the college in 1886, with money left to her by her father the Bishop of Lincoln. It was her intention to plant a small seed and watch it grow, ‘To provide a nucleus of what we hope may eventually prove a more important undertaking…’ She had been principal of Lady Margaret Hall and saw the need to provide additional facilities to young, talented women who could not afford the recently established Oxford female institutions, her own included. With this in mind she rented premises at 25 Northam Road and named them after Hugh of Avalon, who was one of her father’s ancient predecessors; he too was bishop of Lincoln in the 12th century.

Sebastian’s desire to help other individuals was apparent at an early age, for he believed he had been called by the Lord to devote his life exclusively to the priesthood.

A scholarship opened up in the Gregorianum, and Wimmer felt obligated to learn more about it in pursuit of his study for the priesthood.

Ever since the colonists arrived in New Haven, they encountered many difficulties that at first thwarted them from creating a thriving economy, and eventually shattered what hopes they had of creating the strong and influential haven they had imagined (10,14). Although New Haven did not develop into a prominent and successful colony, it began as a very organized and well-prepared undertaking. The settlers first came together in 1637 when John Davenport, a pastor persecuted by both the English and the Dutch due to his radical puritan beliefs, ultimately came to the conclusion that the optimal course of action would be to flee to the New World (1, conn the book pg. 47). Davenport yearned to pursue his beliefs somewhere his ideas would be accepted, and knowing that many were considering the same course of action in England, he recruited a group of Puritan families in England who were both devoutly religious, yet also were focused on making money.
