Benefactions Board

One or two boards now hanging in the Church vestry which name some benefactors and what they left to the Church or parishioners.
Included on this board is an entry
“Richd: Halke of Wye left by Will date Sep 20 1578
Nine Shillings a Year towards the repair of the Church”
Curiously, this is not what Richard's will says. He said
“I wyll & gyve towards the buyldynge of the Steple of the church of Wye Tenne pounds of lawfull money of England To be payd and bestowed bye my Executrixe, when the sayd Steple shall be in buyldynge”
Maybe it was decided to invest the £10 and the nine shillings was the resulting annual income.
