Charities for the poor
The poor of Stretton were presumably eligible to
benefit from charities established for Burton parish,
and were specifically named in those of Mrs. Almond
and Richard Steele. Three houses in Ellen Parker's
almshouse in Burton were reserved for women from
Stretton, her birthplace. (fn. 13)
Distributions were also made in the late 1780s from
at least four benefactions made for Stretton alone, but
the capital belonging to those charities was lost in the
early 19th century. (fn. 14)
