Sebright Grant

William Sebright


William Sebright was born in Wolverley in 1541.


He became a wealthy man, and when he died his will confirmed 'his intention of giving funds for the poor of Wolverley and other parishes'.

It is this money from William Sebright’s Estate that, invested over years, has resulted in grants still being available today, for students and vocational apprentices, that live within the 'areas of benefit'.
