21 St Andrew’s Street / The Chalice

History of 21 St Andrew's Street

In medieval times this property, long called ‘The Chalice’, was the property of Corpus Christi College. It was sold and then given to Emmanuel by Dr Harvey in 1584. Other nearby houses were purchased by Emmanuel at the beginning of the 17th century from a prominent Cambridge citizen called Wolfe. Other property in the vicinity was at one time in the possession of Thomas Bracebridge, a well known yeoman-bedell. There is a large coat of arms on the facade, under which is the sign of the Chalice.
