Scope and Content
Founded by Lord William Bruer, the precise date unknown, but it must have been prior to 1195, when it is known that a cemetery was granted to the convent. The house was surrendered by the Prioress, Eleanor Sydenham, Feb. 19th, 1538. As late as 1670 the arms of the community, a sword sable between two catherine wheels argent, remained, but they have since disappeared, together with a considerable portion of the buildings. The buildings now remaining are occupied as a farm house.
