TitleCOMMITTEE FOR REFORMATION OF THE UNIVERSITIES
Date1650-1652
DescriptionAugmentation order book of the Committee for Reformation of the Universities. July 1650-April 1652.

The Committee for Reformation of the Universities originated in 1646, but its function changed from 24 June 1650. From this date it was responsible for giving orders for the payment of augmentations or grants for the maintenance of clergy, and also for reviewing and renewing similar orders made previously by the Committee for Plundered Ministers. The Committee for Reformation of the Universities was dissolved on 21 April 1652, and in February 1653 its function in granting augmentations was transferred back to the Committee for Plundered Ministers.

The orders are arranged in a rough alphabetical order by counties, Berkshire-Yorkshire, with Bedfordshire, London and other places out of sequence. There are blank pages at the end of many county series.

p. iii. A title: 'No. 2. Augm. Orders of the Committee for Reformation of the Universities since the 24th of June 1650'. Nos. 1 and 3 in the same series (containing similar inscriptions in the same hand) are also in Lambeth Palace Library, COMM VIa/1-2.
