Poor of Farningham

Poor of Farningham
This relates to money left by members of the Roper family. Margaret Roper, who lived in Eltham, was the daughter of Sir Thomas More and her second son, Anthony, lived in Farningham, Kent, where he built a mill. The charity dates to the early 17th century. A mill still stands on the site of Roper’s Mill in Farningham.
