CHARITIES FOR THE POOR.

There was apparently an established almshouse with five almsmen in 1558. It may have been the hospital or almshouse recorded c. 1577, but is not recorded again after that date. (fn. 6)

Thomas Love, by will dated 1565, gave to Thomas Riche £120 to buy land to provide a yearly rent of £6 for the poor of Little Horkesley and 11 other parishes. (fn. 7) In 1864 Little Horkesley's share amounted to about £7 and the income in 1992 was £50. (fn. 8)
