Administrative/Biographical history:

In 1485 William Hobbayne left his house and 24 acres of land for the benefit of the poor of the parish of Hanwell. The trustees of the charity used the income from the property for various parish purposes, including the repair of the church, provision of an annual sermon, and relief of the deserving poor. In 1790 the trustees built almshouses for the use of the parish, and in 1779 they founded a parish school.
