From Liverpool he went on to Cambridge to offer himself as a sizar at the University.
The two incidents that we have narrated made Julian fear that his position as a sizar would be one of continual annoyance.
In a month he had passed his first examinations and was made a sizar.
His wife was dead; his only son, who had been a sizar at Cambridge, was a curate in London.

I was a sizar at a fashionable school, a condition never premeditated.
Young Aubrey was sent to school, and thence to college as a sizar: he obtained several prizes, and took a high degree.
In 1705 he entered as a sizar at Emmanuel College, Cambridge; in 1711 he was elected fellow of his college and was ordained.
He was the son of a barber, but was well educated, and was able to enter Caius College as a sizar at thirteen.
