English Monastic Life – Friars of Saint Mary de Areno


These friars had but one house, at Westminster, founded towards the end of the reign of Henry III. They were short-lived as a body, falling under the law of suppression of the lesser mendicant Orders. They, however, continued for a few years longer, as Tanner quotes a Close Roll of 11 Edward II, to show that they were only dissolved in that year, A.D. 1318.
