It was first endowed in 1663 at Cambridge as a result of a gift from Henry Lucas, a governmental representative from the area encompassing the university. The holder of the chair was appointed a full professor at Cambridge, and was granted a stipend generated by revenue from land also donated by Lucas, as well as access to the full library of Lucas (some 4,000 volumes) and the papers of all preceding occupiers of the position.
