Who is eligible?

Freemen of the city of York and their dependants living in the Micklegate Strays ward. (This area is now defined as the whole of that part of the city of York to the west of the River Ouse.)

How to apply?

Other information

The trust was created by the 1907 Micklegate Strays Act. The city of York agreed to pay the freemen £1,000 a year in perpetuity for extinguishing their rights over Micklegate Stray. This sum has been reduced due to the forced divestment of the trust government stock, following the Charities Act of 1992.
