Hospital for Lunatics, Barking Church
   Hospital founded in parish of Barking church, 44 Ed. III., for poor priests and others sick of the phrenzie (S. 139).
   Stow suggests that the Hospital may have belonged to an Alien Priory and been suppressed by Ed. III. or Henry V. (ib.), as there appears to be no further record of it.
