Event detail for site: Denbigh
The friary was founded at some time during the 1270s and the 1280s.
It is not known for certain who founded Denbigh. Although it has traditionally been attributed to the Salusbury [Salisbury] family who were later patrons of the house the founder was more likely John de Sunimore [Swynmore]. The historian and cartographer, John Speed (d.1629), ascribes the foundation to Sunimore.
