CHARITIES.

Ralph Bigland, the herald and antiquary (d. 1784), gave £100 for the poor of Frocester; land purchased in Coaley produced £5 in 1827. A provision that 20s. of the income should be used for a dinner for the distributors on the donor's wedding day was never apparently observed. (fn. 1) In 1968 no distribution had been made for several years. (fn. 2)
