40. THE HOSPITAL OF ST. CLEMENT, OXFORD
In 1345 the prior of the Hospital of St. Clement by Oxford, 'who has not whereof to live,'
was granted protection for two years to seek
alms throughout the realm. (fn. 1)
41. THE HOSPITAL OF ST. GILES, OXFORD
Licence to collect alms was given to the
master and brethren of the Hospital of St. Giles
of Rotherweye, in Oxford, in 1330, 1336, and
1346. (fn. 2) A bequest was made in 1390 to 'the
poor in the spitel by St. Giles church,' and
Wood suggests that it was also called Bethlehem
Hospital. (fn. 3)

thought that there was a hospital in Stockwell Street,
but this was probably due to confusion with the
tenements held in that street by the Hospitallers.
