Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge

Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, is thus called because it started in 1869 in a building opposite the Fitzwilliam Museum - the Georgian Halstead House on Trumpington Street.
Halstead House was re-named Fitzwilliam Hall in 1892.
It was renamed Fitzwilliam House in 1922.
The college later moved to a new site in N Cambridge. See street view of new site.
