Almshouses for six widows were founded and endowed by Thomas Mendfield in 1614.
In 1721 Thomas Napleton founded and endowed houses for six men.
In 1840, Henry Wreight, local solicitor and former Mayor of Faversham, gave a bequest which enabled the rebuilding of the almshouses on a grand scale. The architects were Hooker and Wheeler of Brenchley, Kent and the rebuilding was complete by 1863. The builder was G W Chinnock Bros of Southampton.
The accommodation was modernised in 1982 at a cost of £1 million (about £3.18 million as of 2017).
