About Cambridge University Alumni, 1261-1900

Alumni Cantabrigienses was compiled by John and J.A. Venn, former presidents of Gonville and Caius and Queens' Colleges respectively. This list of all known students, graduates, and officers at the University of Cambridge offers information from various sources besides the university's records, which date from around 1261. The entire collection contains 10 volumes in 2 sets. The first set covers alumni from the earliest records to 1752 and the second set from 1752 to 1900. The compilation was completed in 1956.

Every entry offers important information which may include any of the following: notable accomplishments, occupation, birth date, birth place, other schooling, spouse's name, parent's names, siblings and other important associations. For researchers of learned English ancestors, this can be a helpful source of detailed information.
