Perhaps his best remembered contribution was his encouragement and funding of the waterway system, Hobson's Conduit.
Constructed in 1614, the Conduit Head was originally built on Market Hill to improve the city of Cambridge's sanitation.
This 'take that one or none' ultimatum ensured Hobson's reputation as an astute businessman and city character, and the poet John Milton would later immortalise the expression 'Hobson's choice' in two commemorative epitaphs.
Hobson's impressive rise from stable-owner to respected public benefactor can be charted through multiple designations on our National Heritage List for England.
It was moved in the 19th century following a fire - although today you can still glimpse the old fountain base at the centre of the market square.
