Guy's Hospital N/A
Guy’s Hospital was founded by Thomas Guy (1645?-1724), a bookseller and member of the Stationer’s Company who sold Bibles, and at one time owned a share in the patent for the Printer to the University of Oxford. Among his many other charitable interests he was a Trustee of St. Thomas’s Hospital. He invested largely in the South Sea Bubble, but began to sell when the £100 shares reached £300, and sold out before the bubble burst. With his riches he built a new hospital opposite St. Thomas’s. The arms were granted 24 May 1725 to the Corporation for the management and disposition of the charities of Thomas Guy of London.
