St John's Winchester Charity can trace its origins back to the early 10th century. The Charity now incorporates a number of ancient Winchester institutions, the oldest of them is the Hospital of St John the Baptist, founded by St Brinstan, who became bishop in A.D. 931. Almost equally venerable was Winchester's hospital for lepers, St Mary Magdalen, which was certainly in existence in the 11th century but was destroyed in the late 18th century and little documentary evidence survives for it, in contrast with St John's and St Cross.
