A gift in a Will that is still going strong after 260 years

The Gill’s Charity was established in 1761 from the Will of Henry Gill Esq, Alderman of Carrickfergus. As well as outlining who should receive his sword, waistcoat and diamond cut stone buttons set in gold, Henry Gill’s Will also stipulated that the residual value of his estate be used; “for the annual support and maintenance of fourteen aged men, decayed in their circumstances and that are not able to get a maintenance to themselves.”
