21. HOSPITAL OF LONG BLANDFORD
Hutchins states that there was here a hospital
for lepers, mentioned in an old deed of the date
of 10 Edward I. (fn. 19) Nothing further is known of
its existence, but local tradition preserves its
memory in a farmhouse within the parish of
Langton or Langton Long Blandford, known as
St. Leonard's Farm.
22. HOSPITAL OF ST. MARY AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, LYME
Beyond one reference we know nothing of
a hospital for lepers founded here. In 1336
Bishop Robert Wyville of Salisbury granted an
indulgence for the repair of the fabric and belltower. (fn. 20)
Hist. of Dorset, i, 98.
||Sarum Epis. Reg. Wyville, i, fol. 40d. Hutchins,
Tanner, and Dugdale state that this hospital is valued
in the chantry certificate of Edward VI at 38s. 11d.,
but further evidence is wanting to establish identity
between this hospital for lepers and the service of the
Blessed Mary, for which the sum of 38s. 11d. was
applied towards the finding of 'a clerke and children,'
the only entry under Lyme Regis in the said chantry
certificate. Chant. Cert. 16, No. 71.
