The property in Church Row, Fenchurch Street, has been sold by the Company. They pay the sum of 10s. per annum to each of the two pensioners.

The present pensioners are widows of freemen of the Company

William Williams, by will of the 6th July 1809, gave to the Company 2,0001. New South Sea Annuities, for making some provision for three poor liverymen and their widows. In default of such objects, he gave the dividends to the poor of the Company in equal shares and proportions.

James Milner, by will of the 19th March 1830, gave to the Company the contingent reversionary interest in 2,5001. and 7001. respectively, and the residue of his estate in possession, in trust that the said Company, on the receipt of the said residue and of the said 2,5001. and 7001., should invest the same on Government securities in trust to receive the dividends; and, after allowing themselves a reasonable remuneration, should half-yearly, within a week of receiving such dividends, distribute the same among as many poor and distressed fathers of milies, that each father might not receive more than 301. a year nor less than 151. And that when once such a person or persons should be selected to receive the same from the Company, they should continue to receive the same during his or their life or lives, unless sufficient cause should appear to warrant the discontinuance of the same, in which case, and on the death of each annuitant, another should be elected within a month. And the testator desired that the Company should exercise a sound and unbiassed discretion in the selecting such persons for the objects of his charitable bequest to them as trustees, such persons as might have been unfortunate in business or might have continued bad health, and whose distressed situation in life might be solely caused by such losses in trade or ill-health, or such persons as might be unable to support their families in consequence of mental or severe bodily affliction, but should have borne good characters for honesty, sobriety, and industry.

The prior interests in the above sums determined, and the affairs of the executorship were administered under the direction of the Court of Chancery. The trust fund transferred to the Company now consists of 4,3811. 7s. 3d. Consols, standing in the corporate name of the Company.

There are four pensioners of 201. per annum, and three of 15l. per annum. None of these are members of the Company.

I append a form of application.

The sum of 61. 13s. 4d. given for a dinner is carried to the credit of the Company under that head.
