Nicholas Eiffler

What else do we know about Nicholas?

Nicholas was a wealthy man, as we can see from his Inventory. It shows how many rooms his house contained, and the amount of goods he owned. Nicholas was married to Katherine, but it is thought they had no children. He and his wife were concerned about the poor in Warwick. In his will Nicholas provided for the founding of Almshouses for old, poor women without family. You can still see his Almshouses in Warwick today.

What do we mean by Almshouses?

Houses given over to poor members of society to live in where they would be provided for.

Nicholas died on 14 January 1592. Fragments of his glass can still be seen at Charlecote.
