Amalgamated Clubs

The Amalgamation Club was formed in October 1884 as a way to introduce a new system for managing the finances of the College Clubs. Up until this date each separate club had been responsible for collecting its own subs and managing its expenses. However, by October 1884 all Clubs, with the exception of the Football Club, was in debt. On 23 October 1884, a general meeting was held, and a provisional Committee, with Mr Gray (Treasurer of the Boat Club) as its chairman was set up. The committee drew up a report containing a framework of rules which was unanimously agreed to at another general meeting held on 11 November 1884.

For this and other early deeds, see Nuns/Gray 79-99. The church was very croded by the 1850s, and was demolished in favour of a new one in Jesus Lane. A draft history of the parish by A.C. Bouquet is kept in the Old Library, in the modern MSS collection.
