GUILDS

Leverington had three guilds, Mary,. John and the Holy Trinity. The first of these was found in 1386. Guildsmen use chapel, now known as Swaine chapel in Leverington church. Guilds of. John and the Holy Trinity are mentioned in the will of Richard Adam of Leverington. Adam leaves a dozen young swans every year for four years, profits to be applied at the discretion of aldermen and brethren of guilds, and 6 acres in Pope's Lane Field, Leverington, for priest John's Guild to pray for his soul. Guildhall, which occupies the site of the present school, belongs to. John's Guild. In 1525, a loft was added to it, and in 1529 it was let to Richard Salter, parish clerk, on a five-year lease. In 1549, when the tenant was William Taymer, building was bought by William Warde. It eventually became vested in the Hawkin family; in 1713 William Hawkins bequeath it to Leverington Feoffees, subject to the life annuity of his wife Sarah. Other property of. John's Guild was sold in 1568. It is possible that this guild may have had some connexion with the Hospital John Baptist in Leverington. By 1686, the hospital had 'long ceased to exist' and all its endowments had been'swallowed up. ' Its name, however, survives in Spital Field, and it is conjecture that almshouses in Little Dowgate Lane, which adjoin this Field, may have been built on its site.

Leverington is well endowed with charities, which are administer by trustees known as Leverington Feoffees. Feoffees control both ancient charities derived from Town Lands and charities subsequently established by various benefactors. The full number of appointed trustees is twelve who hold office for life, and fresh appointments are made when the number is reduced to six. Two Churchwardens serve ex-officio, and three representative trustees are appointed by the Parish Council. In former, charities were managed in rotation by one of Feoffees known as Town bailiff, who holds such office for one year only; but this practice has long been discontinued and administrative duties are now carried out by a clerk. In connexion with proceedings in Chancery in 1696, a search was made for early documents relating to charities. Nothing, however, was traced except the deed of 1557 appointing new trustees and the Chancery Master was only able to report that there were 117. 1 r. Of ancient endowments, of which about 13. 3 r. Had been given in Henry VIII's reign to the Rector of Leverington on condition that he should pray for the soul of the donor and his ancestors; and that remaining 103. 2 r. Had been held by Feoffees upon various trusts including repair of the Parish Church. We are hardly better able to trace the accumulation of Town Lands than the Chancery Master of 1696. Close study, however, of the wills of 18 Leverington inhabitants, proven in Ely Consistory Court between 1450 and 1460, shows that in nearly every case, money or proceeds of sale of land was given either in alms, or in various ways for the benefit of the Church or of those serving it. Moreover, the origin of Charity land in Oxfield is now know; for in 1503, William Digby of Godmanchester, son of JOHN Digby of Leverington, quitclaimed to be 'provost' of Leverington Church and to inhabitants his right in messuage and land in 'le Oxfield' or Fytton Field. Charity monies so bequeathed in the early days were not, it seem, in all cases immediately distribute, but were, here as elsewhere, used to provide stock which was lent to husbandmen and others to help them in starting or carrying on their business. Interest on stock was charge, and two bondsmen were required to ensure repayment. These loans were generally arranged on or about Plough Monday. Another form of stock consists of cows which were hired out for a year at agreed rent; and for poor people unable to buy cows, this must have been of great value in providing milk and calves. Uninclosed commons afford grazing. For many years, accounts of Churchwardens, Feoffees, and Parish officials were intermingle. It was not until the 17 century that distinct accounts began to be keep.
