Alberbury Priory facts for kids
Alberbury Priory was a medieval monastic house in Alberbury, Shropshire, England, established c.1230. It was one of three houses in England belonging to the French Grandmontine Order.
The monastery was small, with only 7 monks under a prior in occupancy in 1344, possibly supported by 'lay brothers' who did manual work.
In 1359, the then prior of Alberbury was deposed for alleged violence, murder, and dissipation of the priory's goods. In 1364, one of his successors was outlawed for alleged murder and fled the house.
