Harvey Kimpton, lord of the manor of Shelley, by
will dated 1817, left £100 in trust for
the poor of the parish. In 1834 the
income was distributed in small sums
of cash to all poor parishioners including some receiving
parish relief. William Bullock, by deed poll of 1822,
gave £333 6s. 8d. in trust for the poor, subject to a lifeinterest for himself. In 1834 the income was spent on
bread, meat, and coals for all poor parishioners of good
character. (fn. 78) A scheme of 1863 provided for the use of
both charities in support of a clothing club or for gifts
in kind, but in 1950 £10 were distributed from them
in gifts of cash to 20 people. (fn. 79)
