He was to spend the rest of his academic life in Cambridge, indeed at St. John's. He got a First in the History Tripos in 1882 and was admitted a member of the Inner Temple in London.

He served as an Assistant Tutor from 1895 to 1900, a Tutor and Tutorial Bursar from 1900 to 1912 and 1921 respectively. From 1926-1927 Tanner was Deputy to the Regius Professor of Modern History.

In addition to his many University posts Tanner also lectured on Indian history to Indian Civil Service recruits (1885-1893) and was a prominent expert on Samuel Pepys- publishing many books on Pepys and also on the wider naval context. In 1888 Tanner married Charlotte Maria Larkman (d. 1946) and the couple lived in Aldeburgh (Suffolk) during their retirement.

This beaker was a gift to Mrs. Tanner on her husband's leaving the post of Tutor at St. John's College.
