DUNNING'S GIFT

Mr Richard Dunning by his will dated May 5th 1788, proved in London on September 12th 1795, gave 100 to the Reverend Doctor Robert Hawker and his executors, the interest from which was to be put towards the clothing of several poor children who were attending, or who might attend, the Sunday School  that the Reverend Hawker had instituted in the parish of Charles, Plymouth.  This was the Household of Faith School.

The legacy was represented by 160 of Consols which was transferred to the Official Trustees of Charitable Funds by an Order of the Court of Chancery dated June 25th 1858 and an Order of the Charity Commissioners dated November 5th 1858.
