G. - A Rent Charge of £18. per annum for the Poor of Wells, payable £8. at Christmas, and £10. at Lady Day, from an Estate at Bale, vested in the Rector of that place, given by the Rev. Mungo Moray, Rector of Wells, toward the close of the 17th century.
Christopher Ringer, of Field Dalling, Gent. by Will, dated in 1678, bequeathed £8. per annum each to two widows, for teaching 30 poor children each to read, knit, and sew: also £16. per annum to be laid out in wheat meal, to be given to poor persons in Wells, who do not receive collection from the parish. The aforesaid sums are regularly paid out of the rent of an Estate in Town Barningham, under the management of 8 Trustees, which Estate was purchased partly with the money left by the said Christopher Ringer, and partly with £100. advanced by the parishioners, for which sum the Trustees pay £5. per annum interest, to the Parish Officers of Wells. The rent of the Estate is £55. a year.
Ann Tidd, by Will, dated in 1738, gave all her Estates in Wells to her sister Bridget Tidd, charged with an annual payment of £20. to the Poor in Wells, who do not receive collection, to be distributed by her said sister and her heirs for ever. The present heir is George Chad, Esq. of Thursford.
