capital applicable to this chanty was 13,446Z. 168, Oon-
8018, prooucing an annual dividend of 40dZ. Ss, 2d.

There are six exhibitioners of 601. each at St. John's
College, Oxford. They are chosen from the Merchant
Taylors' School according to rule set forth in the
indenture of the 6th February 1801, which provided
that the money should be paid to the Company for
establishing six scholarships or exhibitions so soon as the
funds and accumulating interest would admit thereof
at bOl. per annum eacm, to be elected from the said
school, and taken out of the bench or table thereof from
amon^ such as had been four years at least scholars in
the said school, or from such other persons as had been
at the bench or table and in the school four years, but
had left the said school, not under 16 nor above 20 years
of age at the time of election, who were to continue
12 years and not longer, and to be accounted civil law
scholars or civil law exhibitioners, with such other pro-
vision respecting their residence and accommodation
and studies at college as therein mentioned.

The following were the proposals agreed to between
the Company and the President and Scholars of St.
John's College, Oxford, which received the sanction of
the Court of Chancery.

That the sum of 2,610Z. cash, with interest at 6 per
cent., and 2,6662. ISs. 4d, Consols, to be allotted out of
the funds in the name of the accountant-general in trust
in the cause to remain in the name of the accountant-
general, and the dividends to be paid to the Company
for establishing six scholarships of the said College, as
soon as the said funds and accumulating interest will
admit, and that such number of the said six scholarships
be in the meantime established at 601. per annum each,
as the Company should think proper.

Such scholars to be elected at the Feast of St.
Barnabas by the said Company, with the assent of the
President or Vice-President and two senior Fellows of
the said College, in the chapel of the grammar school
of the said Company, immeaiately after the election is
had and made of tne scholars directed by Sir Thomas
White, Knight, deceased, formerly one of the assistants
of the said fraternity, to bo elected from the said Mer-
chant Taylors' School and admitted into the said College,
and such sdholars to be taken out of the bench or table
of the said school who have been scholars of the said
school four years at least, or from such other persons



Exhibitions founded by De. John Andbew.

By an Order of the Board, dated 10th December 1875,
it was provided by yray of scheme that the annual value
of each of these exhibitions which should thenceforth
be five in number, should be raised to the snm of 861.,
and that the same should be tenable for not more than
five years, and that the Company should have power
from time to time, subject to the approval of the Board,
to frame rules and regulations for the election and
examination of candidates for such exhibitions or
scholarships.

The following regulations were sanctioned by an
Order of the Board, dated 19th May 1876, namely-—

1. The election of candidates for the said exhibitions
or scholarships, which are henceforth to be five in
number, of the value of 862. a year each, and tenable
for a period of not more than five years, shall be made
by the Master, Wardens, and Court of Assistants of
the Merchant Taylors' Company, and the President or
Vice-President, and two Fellows of St John's College,
Oxford, or such of them as shall be present at and take
part in the election on St. Barnabas' Day at Merchant
Taylors' School, immediately after the election of Sir
Thomas White's scholars.

2. At the date of election, candidates must be in the
head form of the Merchant Taylors' School, and not
under 16 or above 20 years of age, and must have been
in the school at least four years.

3. Candidates shall be examined by examiners
appointed for the purpose by the said Master and
Wardens ; and in order to be eligible for election must
satisfy the examiners that they have attained such a
knowledge of classics and mathematics as would enable
them to pass the responsions examination in their first
term at Oxford, and the election shall be made from
the candidates who satisfy that test according to their
proficiency in history and modem languages, except
that, in any case in which there shall be no duly
qualified candidate whose proficiency in history and
modem languages is cousidered to entitle him to



who have been at the bench or table and in the school
for four years, but have left the said school, not under 16
or above 20 years of age at the time of election, and to
continue 12 years and not longer, and to be accounted
civil law exhibitioners.

To remain unmarried and to reside at the College for
the same time in every year as the commoners of the
said College are required to reside, and to proceed regu-
larly to their law degrees, and that after the first four
years, during the remainder of the term for which they
hold their scholarships,' they shall reside at least 80 days
in every year.

The scholars f o be provided with residence within the
College for the first four years, they paying for their
rooms the same rent which the commoners do, and to
observe all the rules of the College ; and the scholar-
ships to become vacant in case of any scholar entering
into holy orders, marrying, or entering into any employ-
ment incompatible with the piactice of the civil law, or
by resignation of such scholar or expulsion by the Col-
lege, or by quitting the said College, or on any other
account ; on a vacancy to a scholarship the College to
certify the vacancy to the said Master and Wardens.

In case of a vacancy of a scholar not exceeding six
months, the pension to go to the immediate succeeding
scholar, and if longer than six months to constitate a
part of the accumi:Sated fund.

These rules have not undergone any change, but the
stipends have been increased to 601. each.

After paying the amount of these scholarships to the
holders annually, or so fai* us they are full, the surplus
incomw is added to the capital from which, according to
the present disposition ^f the Company, it is intended
to increase the annual stipends, as the fund may here-
after admit.

They are at present full, and on the occasion of a
vacancy the election is made in June.

There is not an election annually.

It appears by the following table that during the 10
years tbere has been on an average less than two

election, a candidate may be elected for proficiency in
any branch of study.

4. The exhibitions are to be paid half-yearly at
Christmas and Midsummer, and each exhibitioner will
be required to become and remain a member of St.
John's College, Oxford, and must, during the first four
years after he shall have proceeded to tne University,
or until he shall have taken some degree in the Uni-
versity, produce before any half-yearly payment on
account of the exhibition is made, a certificate from the
President or Vice-President of that College of his
residence, good conduct, and satisfactory progress,
down to the end of the academical term next preceding
the time fixed for such payment.

5. The exhibitions will be tenable for five years from
the date of election, but any exhibition will be rendered
vacant by the resignation or expulsion from the College
of the exhibitioner, or by the exhibitioner's name being
taken off the books of the College, or by his ceasing to
reside during an entire academical year without good
cause to be allowed by the President or Vice-President
of the College, and any exhibition may be declared
vacated by the Master and Wardens, if the exhibitioner
shall fail to produce such certificate from the President
or Vice-President of the College as is required by the
last regulation, or in such case the Master and Wardens
may hold the exhibitioner disentitled to any half-
yearly payments of the exhibition without depriving
him of the exhibition altogether.

6. Pending the establishment of a regular recurring
vacancy in each year, the Master and Wardens reserve
to themselves the power of suspending the election to
any exhibition over and above one in each year.

7. The Master and Wardens reserve to themselves the
power to add to the corpus of the exhibition fund any
unapplied income that may arise, under the last pre-
ceding regulation or otherwise, from any exhibitions
which during any period cease to be payable wholly or
in part, and to increase the value of the exhibitionB
hereafter at th«>ir discretion out of the improved income.

The propertv is situated at the back of Great and
Little Denmark Street, Soho, in the parish of St. Giles,
and is let bv lease of 31 July 1809 to Joseph Seger, for
a term of 61 years, from Midsummer 1806, at a rent
of80Z.

It appears to be entered from a court in Little
Denmark Street, through which there is an access into
Lloyd's Court. It is bounded on the east by Little
Denmark Street, on the north by the backs of the
houses in Great Denmark Street, on the south by
Lloyd's Court, and on the west by houses at the back
of Crown Street.

The distribution of the rent is made pro rat& according
to the original gift of 30/. a year.

The sum thus appropriated to the poor of the Com-
pany amounts to 2oZ. ISa. 4(2., which is given to four
pensioners, being free of the Company, in the sum of
61 ISs. 4d(. each.

The pensioners are not elected under 50 years of age,
and being once elected are continued as pensioners
unless removed for a good cause. The pensions may be
held with some other pension from other Charities.

The remaining two- thirds, amounting to 53Z. 68. Sd.,
is annually paid over to the treasurer of the Wallingford
Municipal Charities, and is suffered to be applied by
them, according to the terms of the foundation, amongst
the poor, and for the grammar school.



Chabity or Walter Bigg.
This property, known as Nos. 3, 4, and 5, Little Den-



mark Street, &'t. Giles, is now (1882) let to
Crosse and Blackwell. at the rent of 350Z. a year.

In consequence of the increase of the annual income
available for the benefit of the poor freemen of the Com-
pany, by an order of the Board, dated 28th July 1874,
it was directed by way of scheme that the annual pen-
sions payable to four poor freemen of the Company



should be increased from 6Z. 13«. 4d, to 12L each, and
that the residue of the income thereof, which should
remain after providing for the payment of such aug-
mented pensions, should be applied in paying yearly
pensions of lOZ. each, to be awarded under such reason-
able regulations as might be prescribed by the Company
unto deserving poor freemen, or the widows or orphan
daughters of such freemen, all of whom should be called
•* Bigg's Pensioners."



Blundell's Chakity.

Peter Blundell, by his will of the 9th June 1599, gave
to the Company 150Z. to purchase lands, &c., out of
which 21. waa directed to be paid to the poor prisoners
in Newgate, London.

The rentchargo of 21. is upon a house in Threadneedle
Street, and is paid annually to Mr. Temj)le at the Guild-
hallf for administration by the Corporation of London.

Boone's Chakity.
A full account of this endowment is set forth in my
report of the 2nd July 1862, made on the occasion of
the application of the Company for a new scheme in
consequence of the increased income of this Charity.

There is also a small detached plot at the comer cf
Church Lane, Lee Bead, and the lands which are occu-
pied by the Chapel, almshouses, and gardens which face
the same road from London to Eltham.

The main portion of the property has lately been let
under an agreement for building to Messrs. Todd,

sanction of the Board, have been granted as follows : —
