CHARITIES.

Roger March, by will dated 1614, left to the poor an annuity of 10s. charged on Church field and Castle hill. By indenture of 1662 Robert Carr gave an annuity of 20s. charged on a 20-a. field. (fn. 51) The two charities, which were regularly distributed, were merged before 1959. In 1963 three widows each received 10s. from the combined income of £3. (fn. 52)
