The Frost Society

Bishop Fox founded Corpus Christi College in 1517 with the help of a £4,000 donation from his friend Bishop Oldham – worth around £1m today. Corpus then received a legacy from Fox's steward, William Frost of Avington, who later became High Sheriff of Hampshire.

When Frost died he bequeathed his estate at Maplederwell to the College, so its income could support the maintenance of a Scholar and a Fellow.

In recognition of Frost's generosity, the College named its legacy society after him.
