At Waddington is an hospital, founded in the year 1701, by Robert Parker, second son of Edward Parker, of Browsholme, Esq. for ten widows. The deed of endowment sets forth “ that the said Robert Parker, to the honour and glory of God, hath erected an hospital, with an oratory for divine worship, for the convenient reception of ten poor widows. The trustees to choose one sober and orthodox person to read daily morning and evening prayers. Also to take care that the chapel be never hereafter converted into a school, or to any other use but to the worship and service of God; and to meet yearly on the 13th of June, the founder's birth-day, to examine the accounts, &c. and provide an honest, able, and learned clerk, in holy orders, to preach a sermon in the chapel.” In 1719 the rental of the estates belonging to this hospital was 661. 88.-in 1799 it amounted to £254. Instead of ten there are now fifteen widows. The pious founder died early in life, and unmarried, and was interred in the churchyard of Waddington. His monument is a plain stone without any inscription, only his coat of arms on the side.
