Sherburn House History of Sherburn House Charity


Sherburn House Charity was founded by Bishop of Durham Hugh Pudsey (Hugh le Puiset) as 'Christ's Hospital in Sherburn' around 1181. Its original purpose was as a leper hospital for 'up to 65 leprous monks and nuns'. 

To commemorate the 800th Anniversary of the charity in 1981, the Governors commissioned Dr. Clifton W. Gibby to write a short history. While our supplies of the printed original booklet are exhausted, we  make the full text of this history is available on this website.
