47. THE HOSPITAL OF ST. JAMES, SHOREHAM
Practically nothing is known of this hospital
beyond the fact that it was in existence in 1249,
when an action was brought against the master, (fn. 1)
and that its site and buildings were granted to
John and William Mersh of London in 1574. (fn. 2)
The space between these dates is only bridged by
occasional small bequests in the wills of local
testators. Whether this is the hospital mentioned
in the Valor (fn. 3) of 1535 as worth £1 6s. 8d., or whether the reference is to that of St. Katherine is doubtful.
