Extract from the Will of Mrs. Elizabeth Heywood, A. D. 1752.

" I leave the sum of ten pounds British, whereof the Vicar and Wardens for the time being are to be trustees, and who are to lay the same out at interest for the perpetual use of the poor. And my will is that common beggars are to be excluded from any benefit of this my bequest, and that poor old and infirm people are to have the sole benefit thereof."

Bishop Hildesley, in the year 1764, purchased a plot of ground in the village, on which he built a Dwelling-house for the schoolmaster, and a School-house for the mistress, and gave the sum of 1:30, the interest of which he directed should be applied in repairing the Schoolhouse.

This sum of 1:30 is now in the hands of John Crow and John Corkan, who have passed their promissory note to the Vicar and Wardens for the same, dated 5 July, 1826, bearing interest at the rate of 6 per cent.

The School-house is repaired by Parochial cess, and the interest of the said £30 is brought into the general assessment account.
