Members admitted from 1541 to 1886
The published sources for this period are two compilations by Joseph Foster:
- Alumni Oxonienses 1500–1714 (2 vols, 1891–2)
- Alumni Oxonienses 1715–1886 (2 vols, 1891–2)
These were compiled chiefly from sources in the University Archives and, in most cases, contain all the information we hold on individual members. There is an overlap with Emden's Biographical Register for the period 1500–1540, but Emden is the more informative and reliable source for those years.
The information contained in the volume for 1500–1714 is available on the British History Online website. A digitised copy of the same publication is available in four parts on the Internet Archive:
A digitised copy of the later volume for 1715–1886 is also available in four parts on the Internet Archive:
There may also be other copies available online.
