Thomas Teakle by will dated 1675
gave a rent-charge of £5 to the poor; in the early
19th century the money was used to buy cloth and
flannel for the poor. (fn. 47) At various times in the early
18th century Anne and Samuel Pulton each gave
£40 to the poor, and Elizabeth Pulton gave £20;
the sums were invested in 1773 and produced
interest of £3 10s. 6d. distributed at Christmas. (fn. 48)
The Revd. John Longford (d. c. 1760) (fn. 49) gave £50
for apprenticing poor children, also invested in
1773, and yielding £1 15s. a year. Elizabeth Niblett
gave £20 to the poor in 1783, which yielded 18s. (fn. 50)
In the late 1960s the income from the Teakle
charity was distributed to old age pensioners at
Christmas, and the income from the other charities,
just over £5, was used for the general benefit of the
poor. (fn. 51)
