Stone's Hospital (almshouse) was built in St. Clement's in 1700. £300 was provided from William Stone's estate for the building of the Hospital; the remainder of the estate to be expended on property from which any profits could go towards the maintenance of the residents.

A further legacy of £1000 was left to the Hospital in 1709 by Dr. Stephen Fry.

Stone's Hospital was vested in Oxford Municipal Charities in 1959.
