The Inquiry into this Charity was held on the 29th March 1901 at the office of Rev. Charles Messrs. Lee, Bolton and Lee, No. 1, The Sanctuary, Westminster. S.W.
Charity. There is a reference to this Charity in the Charity Commissioners' Register of Unreported Charities, the substance of which is stated hereafter.
By an indenture made on the 5th March 1857 between the Right Hon. and Right Rev. Archibald Campbell, Lord Bishop of London, and the Very Rev. Richard Chenevix Trench, D.D., Dean of Westminster, of the one part, and the Rev. Charles Boys of Deal, in the county of Kent, clerk, of the other part, it was declared that a sum of 1861. 19s. Consols, which had been purchased by the said Charles Boys in the names of the said parties of the first part, should be held by them upon trust to pay the dividends thereof year by year to such person as, having been appointed for that purpose by the Lord Bishop of London for the time being, should have preached a sermon on the subject of " the history, condition, or prospects of the Jewish people” in such church (being situate in the cities of London or Westminster, or the Liberties thereof) and on such Sunday in the year as should have been directed in that behalf by the Lord Bishop of London for the time being, provided that whensoever no such sermon as aforesaid should be preached in any year the dividends for that year should be invested as an addition to the principal trust fund. The deed then provides that the trust fund shall be transferred to the Bishop of London and Dean of Westminster for the time being, or one of them, or, in the event of neither of them being willing to accept such transfer, that the last Bishop of London or Dean of Westminster in whose name the said trust fund shall have been standing, or his executors or administrators, may appoint not more than four nor less than two persons to be trustees, and the trust fund shall be transferred to such trustees, provided that whenever the said bishop and dean or either of them shall be willing to accept a transfer of the said trust fund upon the trusts thereby declared thereof, the same shall be transferred accordingly.
The abcve statement of the trust deed is taken from an official copy thereof extracted from the Registry of the Diocese of London.
Under the authority of an Order of the Charity Commissioners, dated the 6th December 1889, a sum of 2371. 98. 4d. New Consols representing the trust fund, with an addition purchased out of surplus income, was transferred to the Official Trustees of Charitable Funds, and under the authority of an Order of the said Commissioners, dated the 11th March 1890, a sum of 281., arrears of dividends, was invested in the name of the said Official Trustees in 281. 128. 10d. New Consols, thereby increasing the amount of the fund to 2661. 2s. 2d. New Consols, which sum has recently been further increased by a sum of 461. 138. 10d. like stock purchased out of surplus income and transferred to the said Official Trustees under the authority of an Order of the Charity Commissioners, dated the 5th March 1901, making a total sum of 3121. 16s. New Consols, which now stands in the name of the said Official Trustees and constitutes the endowment of the Charity. The dividends amount to 8l. 128. a year.
In each of the years 1891 and 1892 a sum of 51. out of the income of the Charity was paid to the preacher of a sermon, but since the last-mentioned year no part of the income has been so applied, and by an Order of the Charity Commissioners, dated the 3rd May 1898, a Scheme for the regulation of the Charity was established.
The said Scheme is to the effect that the sermons, instead of being preached yearly, shall be preached intermittently in courses of four each ; that the remuneration of the preacher shall be 121. 12s. for each course; that for this purpose the income of the Charity may from time to time be accumulated until a sufficient amount is provided ; and that the amount and conditions of the payments may be varied with the sanction of the Charity Commissioners.
The dividends on the stock belonging to the Charity have been remitted to Messrs. Coutts and Co. for the account of the Right Rev. the Lord Bishop of London, and under a recent authority will be remitted to the same bankers for the account of Messrs. Lee, Bolton and Lee. Hitherto the income,
Hitherto the income, after payment of the expenses mentioned below, has been accumulated, but it is understood that steps will now be taken to carry out the objects specified in the Scheme.
The accounts of the receipts and expenditure of the Charity for the period from October 1892 to the 12th April 1901 are as follows :
