Serampore College.

AFFILIATED, 1857. This Institution was founded in 1818 under the patronage of the Marquis of Hastings, then Governor-General of India, by the Revds. Dr. Carey, Dr. Marshman, and W. Waril, who, together with Colonel Krefting, the Danish Governor of Serampore, and J. C. Marshman, Esq., formed the first Council.

In 1821 it received a munificent donation from the King of Denmark, consisting of certain premises to the north-west of the College, and this act of liberality was followed in 1828 by the grant of a Royal Charter giving perpetuity to the Institution and its endowments. At the cession of Serampore to the East India Company, this Charter was confirmed at the especial request of the Danish Sovereign.

The ground on which the College stands was purchased chiefly by subscription; the entire expense of the buildings, amounting to about £15,000, was met out of the private funds of the Serampore Missionaries, who were the first promoters of the undertaking. After the death of Dr. Marshman, the funds for carrying on the operations of the College were provided partly by the endowments, but chiefly by the liberality of J. C. Marshman, Esq., the only surviving member of the original Council. On his departure from Iudia in 1856, the College was placed under the general direction of the Baptist Missionary Society, which has since contributed towards its support, and become identified with its operations.

It is conducted by three European Professors, assisted by twelve native tenchers. The number of youths in the College Department is about seventy; in School, three hundred.

The interest of funds raised by the late Mr. Ward in Europe and America supports wholly, or in part, several European youths commected with the Mission or wishing to become so, and also a boarding school for the children of native preachers. Scholarships to the amount of about Rs. 40 anonthly are distributed amongst the most deserving of the native students in the College classes.

An education fee, exacted from the European students, contriLutes to the preservation and improvement of the library.


The course of study is intended to impart a liberal education, and special attention is paid to the principles of Christianity.

The present members of the Council are:-J. C. Marshman, Esq., R. Scott Moncrieff, Esq., Revds. J. Sale, J. Trafford, J. Wenger, and C. B. Lewis.
