In 1837 the college began with 57 pupils and Mr. Rogers was its Head master. The course of Bareilly College has never smooth & unaccountably awry and baffling it was in the initial stage when it had to battle right royally against the formidable forces of ignorance and superstition masquerading under the name of religiosity. With the passage of the time the adverse criticism died down and the college gathered and more strength, commanded the confidence and respect of the public and thus made steady progress. In 1850 it was raised to the status of Government College with Mr. Vernon Tregear (1850-53) as its first principal.
