62. THE HOSPITAL OF SIBTON

There was a hospital near the gate of Sibton Abbey. Though there is but little to put on record about it, it is given separate mention, as it had an income independent of the abbey.

Simon bishop of Norwich appropriated to it the church of Cransford for the better support of the inmates in the year 1264. (fn. 1)

There are slight remains on the site.
