  Oriel College, Oxford - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Oriel is the fifth oldest of Oxford's colleges, and the oldest college that doesn't habitually claim it is the oldest college.
The official name of the College is ‘the House of Blessed Mary the Virgin in Oxford commonly called Oriel College', the name Oriel being used from about 1349 which probably originated from a tenement known as Seneschal Hall or La Oriole granted to the college in 1327.

In 1826 he was chosen fellow of Oriel and was ordained, among his friends and colleagues being Newman, Pusey and Keble.
For a few years he was one of the tutors at Oriel, but the provost, Edward Hawkins, disliked his religious views, and in 1831 he resigned and left Oxford.
The set of friends with whom he chiefly associated at Oxford were sometimes named, on account of their exceptionally decorous conduct, the " Bethel Union "; but he was by no means averse to amusements, and specially delighted in hurdle jumping and hunting.

 The Oxford Movement, by RW Church
The fellows of certain colleges were obliged to proceed to the B.D. degree on pain of forfeiting their fellowships.
Macmullen at last got his degree, but at the cost of a great deal of ill-blood in Oxford, for which Dr. Hampden, by his unwarranted interference, and the University authorities, by their questionable devices to save the credit and claims of one of their own body, must be held mainly responsible.
Stern and severe in his teaching at one time,--at least as he was understood,--beyond even the severity of Puritanism, he was yet overflowing with affection, tender and sympathetic to all who came near him, and, in the midst of continual controversy, he endeavoured, with deep conscientiousness, to avoid the bitternesses of controversy.
