AT THE

Anniversary Festival of the Sons of the Clergy.

The following List, to the year 1731, is taken chiefly from a work entitled, “ A complete

List of the Stewards, Presidents, &c. &c. belonging to the Royal Corporation for the Relief of the Poor Widows and Children of Clergymen, from the Grant of the Charter by King Charles II., July 1, 1678," 8vo. London, 1773. In this work (compiled by William Freeman, A.B., Lecturer of St. Botolph's, Aldersgate) it is stated that the first Sermon was preached in 1655, at St. Paul's, by the Rev. George Hall, M.A., Minister of St. Botolph's, Aldersgate, and afterwards Bishop of Chestert. No subsequent meeting is mentioned until the year 1674, with which the following List commences. We are told elsewhere, that "the custom of preaching to the Sons of the Clergy began in Dr. Manton's time : Dr. Hall preached the first Sermon to them, as Dr. Manton did the second. See Works, Vol. III.”—Gent. Mag. LV. 164. It is probable that a meeting for this charitable purpose may have been held from the year 1655, though with occasional interruptions. The Festival clearly originated prior to the Charter being granted to the Corporation of the Sons of the Clergy, in 1678, as from 1674 there appear to have been Stewards and a Treasurer annually appointed ; and Bishop Spratt, in his Sermon preached in 1678, speaks of "these friendly and charitable meetings “ as having been" for several years renewed, with no just offence to any, though with the grief and envy perhaps of some, who are not of our household of faith, but to the comfort of all that are ; for the present benefit and relief of many, and with well-grounded hopes and presages of much greater things for the future." In 1702, Dr. White Kennett recommended that “an account should be drawn up of the first meeting of this Society, of the several benefactions to it, and of the manifold good services done by it.” It is to be regretted that this suggestion was not then attended to.

The Sermons marked thus were not printed.
