Bounty, Queen Annes
the profits of the firstfruits and tenths, which were anciently given to the pope, transferred in the reign of Henry VIII to the king, and restored to the Church by queen Anne, who caused a perpetual fund to be established from the revenue thus raised, which was vested in trustees for the augmentation of poor livings under 50 a year. This has been further regulated by subsequent statutes; but as the number of livings under 50 was at the commencement of it 5597, averaged at 23 per anuum, its operation is very slow.
