No 207

In consequence of a dispute having arisen at the Revd J Bentalls Boarding house (concerning the propriety of locking boys up in their rooms) and some of the fellows having by consent of the Head Master changed their boarding house the following Rules were established

1st That any fellow in the 6th changing to a house where a Shell fellow was head should immediately become Head of the House.

2nd But if to a house where a fellow (lower in the 6th than himself) was head he should wait 6 months before he became Head of the House.

G.F. Bentinck Prin: Opp.

These Rules were agreed to by the 6th Form November 1837
