The Papey.

This hospital belonged to the brotherhood of St. Charity and St. John the Evangelist, founded in , by William Oliver, William Barnabie, and John Stafford, of London, priests, for a master, wardens, &c. chaplains, chauntry priests, conducts, and other brethren and sisters that should be admitted into the church of St. Augustine Papey in the wall. The brethren of this house becoming lame, or otherwise in great poverty, were here relieved; as to have chambers, with certain allowance of bread, drink, and coals, and old man and his wife to see them served, and to keep the house clean.

These poor priests of the Papey (as also the brotherhood of the threescore priests, and the company of clerks that were skilled in singing dirges and church offices) commonly attended at solemn funerals, as may be collected from the will of dame Jane Milbourn, widow of sir John Milbourn; who, in the year , bequeathed to the brotherhood of the Papey to come to her burial, and to pray for her soul ; and likewise to the brotherhood of -score priests in London to come to her burial, and to pray for her soul .

This brotherhood (amongst others) was suppressed in the reign of Edward VI., since which time this house was occupied by sir Francis Walsingham, principal secretary of state to queen Elizabeth, and many other noble personages. The site of the hospital is the churchyard of St. Martin Outwich.

Adjoining to this hospital was a great house, with handsome courts and garden plats,

some time pertaining to the Bassets, since that to the abbots of Bury in Suffolk, and therefore called Buries Mark, corruptly

Bevis Marks

; and, since the dissolution of the abbey of Bury, to Thomas Heneage the father, and sir Thomas Heneage the son.
