97. THE HOSPITAL OF ST. BARTHOLOMEW WITHOUT LINCOLN
The hospital of St. Bartholomew was intended
for the reception of lepers and other sick persons.
Like that of St. Leonard, it was 'without the
castle' of Lincoln. There was a master and
brethren here as early as 1314, but they are not
heard of after 1331. Like many other such
foundations, the house had fallen into poverty
about this time, and we know of its existence
only by the numerous licences for asking alms
which were granted by the bishop (fn. 1) or the king (fn. 2)
between the dates given above.
