Winstone received the same benefit as Miserden from the charity founded by Thomas Muggleton in 1659. (fn. 1) In 1971 the charity was allowed to accumulate and was administered by the rector and the trustees in cases of special need. (fn. 2) Sir William Sandys (d. 1641) left £3, the interest to be given to the poor of Winstone, but by 1686 the principal sum had been lost. (fn. 3) The congregation of the Baptist chapel shared in a charity founded by Thomas Davis in 1856. (fn. 4)
