CHARITIES.

Richard Clutterbuck of Nupend by will dated 1734 gave a rent-charge of 40s. to be shared among poor housekeepers; (fn. 68) there were 22 recipients in 1878. (fn. 69) John Blanch by will dated 1756 gave £100, the interest to be divided among 10 housekeepers not on parish relief, and John Watkins (d. 1818) left £10 to augment Blanch's charity; the interest, £8 13s. 4d. from investment in stock, was being regularly applied in 1827, (fn. 70) and in 1878 each of the 10 recipients had £1 2s. 6d. (fn. 71) In the late 1960s, when the income of the Blanch charity remained at £8 10s., both charities were still being distributed at Christmas and Michaelmas respectively as laid down by the donors. (fn. 72)
