31. HOSPITAL OF WAREHAM

The only reference to a hospital here is to be found in the return of the commissioners for chantries and colleges in the sixteenth century, which states that the hospital or house of charity in the town of Wareham, valued at £9 13s., was founded for the relief of six poor and impotent men and five poor women 'to have their continual living there and so yt ys usyd.' (fn. 153)
