Samuel Phillimore of Dursley by his
will dated 1798 gave £150 to buy land from which
the rent was to provide bread for the poor of Dursley,
Cam, and Frampton. Frampton received £2 6s. a
year in the early 19th century, (fn. 65) £1 13s. in the early
20th, (fn. 66) and £1 18s. 4d. in 1968 when the money was
distributed in cash. (fn. 67) Anne Wicks (d. 1841) gave
£1,086 in 1829 for the aged and infirm poor, known
as her smaller charity, and by her will gave the
interest on her stock, amounting to £7,745, to the
poor over 55, known as her larger charity. The larger
charity was regulated by schemes of 1909 and 1937.
In 1967 the income was £228 from the larger
charity, distributed in the form of monthly pensions
to c. 20 people of 55 and over, and £23 from the
smaller charity, distributed in cash to 23 people of
