David Tedder was not well known in Tudor Warwick,
and we know very little about him other than that he was poor.
We know he was a poor man because the people who wrote his inventory
describe him as 'one of her Majesty's hospitall[ers].
They were referring to the fact that he lived
in Lord Leicester's Hospital. Lord Leicester's Hospital was a
home for old soldiers. In Tudor times a hospital was not like
a hospital today. It was a place to live. Sometimes ill or injured
people would live there but it was mostly somewhere that was a
home for poor and old people. Places like this were also known
was life like for David?
