The Worsley Almshouses (sometimes referred to as 'the Lower Almshouses') in Crocker Street, Newport were founded by Giles Kent, an employee of the Worsley family of Appuldurcombe House, Wroxall.

On Kent's death in 1618, the Almshouses were bequeathed to the Worsley family with a request that they be named the 'Worsley Almshouses'.
