The college was first founded by Walter de Merton, later Bishop of Rochester, in 1264 and moved to Oxford in 1274. To about this date probably belongs the Hall; the pre-existing church of St. John the Baptist served as a chapel and three houses on the street front no doubt accommodated the scholars. The accounts of the college begin in 1287.
