Styleman's Almshouses.
These 12 almshouses were built in 1755 under the terms of the will of John Styleman, a director of the East India Company, who lived at Danson Park. His will requested 'twelve alms houses for twelve poor families of this parish, to be nominated by the trustees, minister, and churchwardens; and he ordered, that two guineas should be paid to the minister of Bexley yearly, for preaching an annual sermon on Midsummer-day; and three guineas for a dinner yearly on that day'. He died in 1734 and the almshouses were built after his widow's death
