30. THE HOSPITAL OF WERHALE

In 1265 Sir Marmaduke, knt., son of Geoffrey, granted to Richard, then warden of the hospital of Werhale, and his successors an annual sum of 5 marks, on condition that he and his heirs should be released from a certain payment to the hospital of the corn from two bovates of land, which in time past had been made annually by his predecessors. At the date of an inspeximus of this grant made by Bishop Bury, 1 June, 1344, John de Lynce was warden of the hospital. (fn. 1)

Footnotes

1 Hunter's MSS. No. 37. Surtees gives the names of Richard and John de Lynce in his list of the masters of St. Edmund's Hospital, Gateshead (Hist. Dur. ii, 127), but mentions no authority for doing so. The above appears to be the only reference to the hospital of Werhale, which may possibly be identical with one of the hospitals at Gateshead.
