This chapter chronicles the life of John Pell in Sussex and Cambridge, from 1611 to 1629. Pell was born in the village of Southwick, in West Sussex (between Brighton and Shoreham-on-Sea), on March 1 1611. Pell matriculated as a ‘sizar’ of Trinity College, Cambridge, in the Easter term of 1624. Sizars were defined in the College statutes as ‘poor scholars’; they functioned as valets to the Fellows, and to other students, and their duties could include waiting tables in the Hall. Pell later returned to his native Sussex, where in the spring or early summer of 1629 he obtained his first employment, as a schoolmaster.
