MISERICORDIA

The Plymouth charitable institution known as the Misericordia, for the distressed widows and orphans of soldiers and sailors, was founded in 1794.

Mr Robert Brindley, architect and surveyor of Devonport, records in his "Plymouth, Stonehouse and Devonport Directory, 1830" that meetings were held at the Household of Faith in Vennel Street.  The Treasurer was the Reverend J Carne BD.
