Thanks to the benevolence of founder James Millington (1661 – 1738), who was a successful draper living and working in Shrewsbury and who died without heir, the original almshouses were completed in 1749 providing 12 modest dwellings for impoverished people of the Frankwell parish. Mr Millington died many years before the foundation stone of the almshouses was laid.
