Name of creator(s): Early Morning Lecturer Fund


Administrative/Biographical history:

The charity known as the Early Morning Lecturer Fund is first traceable in the City of London in 1737. The lecture was moved from an unspecified church to St Alban Wood Street in 1755, to St Margaret Lothbury in 1769 and to St Swithin London Stone with St Mary Bothaw in 1815. In 1898 the funds were transfered to a Fund for Assistant Curates in the parishes adjoining the City and were thus no longer applicable to any of the City parishes.


Scope and content/abstract:

Records of the Early Morning Lecturer Fund comprise accounts 1753-1898 (Ms 10764); miscellaneous papers and correspondence 1770-1898 (Ms 10765).
