The Dame Elizabeth Marvyn Charity
Lady Marvyn, the wife of Sir John Marvyn, died in 1581, and in her will made provision for the annual distribution of wheat, canvas and cloth to the "poore of Ufton". Before marrying Sir John, Elizabeth had been the wife of Richard Perkins, the owner of Ufton Court and the manors of Ufton Pole and Ufton Robert. Over the years, the tradition of "The Ufton Dole" has been somewhat altered, so that all Parishioners living in the ecclesiastical area of Ufton Nervet, now receive two large loaves of bread and in some eligible cases (on a five-year rota), bed linen and towels. The "Dole" is still distributed every year, on Maundy Thursday, from the same window above the terrace at Ufton Court.
