29. THE HOSPITAL OF GAINFORD.
There seems to have been a small hospital at
Gainford, but scarcely anything is known of it.
In 1317 the advowson of this hospital was granted
to William de la Zouche and Alice his wife,
widow of the late earl of Warwick, out of the
said earl's property as dower. The yearly value
of the advowson is given as 6s. 8d. (fn. 1)
