Not illustrated. 1907 edition. Excerpt: ...collegiate body, consisting of a Warden and eight or nine Chaplains, with three clerks, etc" In 1530 Magnus spent some time as Warden at Sibthorpe, for in a letter to Wolsey, dated 12th April, he says he must give up for the season his house at St. James' in consequence of the expense he had sustained in the North, and because the King's laws being so strait he must reside in one of his benefices. Wolsey had desired to stay at Sibthorpe on his journey to Southwell, but Magnus explained that it was "unmeet" for him on account of its limited accommodation, there not being sufficient room for his own servants when he went thither himself. His busy mind had now been released for a while from State affairs, and had become occupied in the seclusion of private life with those generous schemes which have been of such signal value to his native town. He had seen Archbishop Rotherham found his schools of grammar and song, and it was known that his friend and patron, Archbishop Savage, "intended to have founded a College at Macclesfield similar to that of his predecessor at Rotherham."f Wolsey had done great educational work at Ipswich, and Magnus, turning his generous thoughts in the same direction, resolved to devote his means to the foundation of new schools at Newark. Naturally his first step was to acquire a convenient site, and a property adjoining the Chantry House, consisting then of two messuages, two gardens, and one acre of pasture in Appleton Gate, was purchased by him on March 15th, 1530. f Brewer's Letters, etc, of Henry VIII., IV., pt. 3, p. 2328.
