If you mean full-fledged universities, the answer would be all of them. At that time, universities were only to train theologians and scientists/philosophers. There were presumably secular normal schools (what would later be considered a teacher's college), but a university would have had no purpose without a sectarian backing.

"Established" for that time means tax-supported. It would then mean that not all of the colleges were "established".
