Administrative history

Endowed Charities are charities which exist to carry out the terms of bequests, usually within parishes, and hold some assets and investments in order to do this. Schemes are legal documents by which the Charity Commission may amend, replace or amplify a charity's governing document.

Archival history

Edric Bayley, who was a Solicitor in Southwark and who founded the South London Polytechnic Council and Borough Polytechnic Institute, collected and created the documents in this collection because of a personal interest in the Local Endowed Charities of the Old Borough of London.
