MENDICITY SOCIETY

The Plymouth charitable institution known as the Mendicity Society, for general relief, was founded in 1826.

Mr Robert Brindley, architect and surveyor of Devonport, records in his "Plymouth, Stonehouse and Devonport Directory, 1830" that the Society was supported by voluntary contributions and had an office in the Plymouth Guildhall.  The Secretary was Mr T Pearce.
