Jesus Hospital Charity

Categories: Philanthropy

Established by James Ravenscroft and his wife Mary to look after six lady residents, 'Sisters', living in Ravenscroft Cottages in Wood Street, Barnet. Over time more almshouses were added, and the income from the Ravenscrofts' property in Bethnal Green provided the funding. The trustees of the charity are known as 'Visitors'.
