HC Deb 11 May 1896 vol 40 c996
MR. CHARLES FENWICK (Northumberland, Wansbeck)

I beg to ask the hon. Member for Thirsk, as representing the Charity Commissioners, whether the parish of Horton is entitled to a proportion of the Tripplett Charity in the parish of Woodhorn, seeing that Horton was a chapelry of Woodhorn at the time of the foundation of the Charity by Dr. Tripplett?

MR. GRANT LAWSON (York, N.R., Thirsk)

The Commissioners have no evidence before them to show the parish of Horton was ever included in the ancient parish of Woodhorn; but they will be ready to consider any evidence to that effect which may be laid before them; and its bearing upon the application of the benefits of the Charity in question.
