Goose quarterer on display in the Great Hospital's Refectory
The implement was used for preparing roasted geese for the table - St Giles's was known for their annual goose feasts. The goose quarterer could also be used for swans, which were kept in the hospital's ponds and later in a specially constructed swan pit. For an exterior view of this building and some information see > Link.

An article published in the Norfolk Chronicle on 17 June 1816 records that "The old people in the Great Hospital, St Helenís, Norwich, having been deprived of the dinner of roast goose on Michaelmas Day in consequence of the death of the benefactor who provided it, Mr Robert Partridge on this date signified to the Norwich Corporation his intention to give £100 as a benefaction that the Michaelmas dinner of goose may be revived and continued in future."
