Cambridge was given a charter (a document granting the townspeople certain rights). From then on the merchants of Cambridge elected a mayor. The Round Church was built in 1107. Then in the 13th century friars arrived in Cambridge. Friars were like monks but instead of withdrawing from the world they went out to preach. In Cambridge there were Dominican friars (known as black friars because of their black costumes). There were also Carmelites (known as white friars) and Franciscans (known as Grey friars). In the early Middle Ages there was a Jewish community in Cambridge but they were all expelled to Huntingdon in 1275.
The School of Pythagoras was founded in Cambridge in 1200. The university was founded in 1209. The students were a market for the craftsmen’s goods yet they were unwelcome. The townspeople were often accused of overcharging the students. In 1231 the king forbade the townspeople to charge the students excessive rents. In 1262 a fight broke out between students from the north of England and some form the south. Some townspeople became involved in the fight and afterwards 16 were hanged. Anti-student riots occurred again in 1304, 1322 and 1371. In time Cambridge University came to own large parts of the town, which caused much resentment. From 1317 the bailiffs of Cambridge (officials who assisted the mayor) were forced to swear an oath to uphold the privileges of the university which they bitterly resented.
The first colleges of Cambridge university were founded in the Middle Ages. Peterhouse was founded by the Bishop of Ely in 1284. Clare College was founded in 1326. Pembroke College was founded by the Earl of Pembroke’s widow, Lady Mary de Valence in 1347. Gonville and Caius College was founded in 1348 by Edmund Gonville. Trinity Hall was founded in 1350. It was expanded in the 16th century by Dr John Caius. Corpus Christi College was founded in 1352. Kings College was founded by Henry VI in 1441. Queens College was founded in 1448. St Catharines College followed in 1473. Finally the Bishop of Ely founded Jesus College in 1497. In 1538 Henry VIII closed the friaries in Cambridge.
From 1575 the streets of Cambridge were cleaned. (Before they would have been full of dung and all kinds of rotting organic matter). From 1610 a conduit bought water from Vicars Brook into the town. Like all towns at that time Cambridge suffered from outbreaks of the plague. There was a severe outbreak in 1630. However from 1653 Cambridge was connected to London by stagecoach. In 1654 a writer said Cambridge was situated in a low lying and dirty place. The streets, he said were badly paved and the air was infected by the fens. At the end of the 17th century the travel writer Celia Fiennes said Cambridge lay in a valley with marshy ground around it. Willows surrounded the town. She said the buildings were indifferent and the streets were narrow, except for the Market Place. More colleges of Cambridge University were founded in the 16th century. Christs College was founded in 1505. St Johns College was founded by Lady Margaret Beaufort in 1511. Magdalene College was founded in 1542. Trinity College was founded in 1546 by Henry VIII. Sir Walter Mildmay founded Emmanuel College in 1584. Finally Lady Frances Sidney founded Sidney Sussex College in 1596.

I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
