104. THE HOSPITAL OF HOLBEACH

This hospital was founded in honour of All Saints by Sir John of Kirton, knt., in 1351, to sustain a warden and fifteen poor people. (fn. 1) He increased the foundation somewhat in 1359, (fn. 2) and obtained a confirmation of his grant from the pope in 1362. (fn. 3) It had ceased to exist, however, before the suppression of chantries and hospitals.
