21. HOSPITAL OF LONG BLANDFORD

Hutchins states that there was here a hospital for lepers, mentioned in an old deed of the date of 10 Edward I. (fn. 19) Nothing further is known of its existence, but local tradition preserves its memory in a farmhouse within the parish of Langton or Langton Long Blandford, known as St. Leonard's Farm.

22. HOSPITAL OF ST. MARY AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, LYME

Beyond one reference we know nothing of a hospital for lepers founded here. In 1336 Bishop Robert Wyville of Salisbury granted an indulgence for the repair of the fabric and belltower. (fn. 20)

Footnotes

19 Hist. of Dorset, i, 98.
20 Sarum Epis. Reg. Wyville, i, fol. 40d. Hutchins, Tanner, and Dugdale state that this hospital is valued in the chantry certificate of Edward VI at 38s. 11d., but further evidence is wanting to establish identity between this hospital for lepers and the service of the Blessed Mary, for which the sum of 38s. 11d. was applied towards the finding of 'a clerke and children,' the only entry under Lyme Regis in the said chantry certificate. Chant. Cert. 16, No. 71.
