There was no university college in Exeter in the 16th century but there is a strong link with Exeter Cathedral. Exeter College, Oxford was founded by Walter de Stapledon, Bishop of Exeter, in 1314 to provide educated clergy for his diocese (i.e. Devon and Cornwall). Most of the college's members were from the Devon and Cornwall parishes until later in the 17th century.
