Event detail for site:

c. 1246: Foundation

The friary had been founded by 1246 when the community received a grant from Henry III of 10 marks for the fabric of its church; the following year he gave another ten marks to help this cause.

The friars' first dwelling may have been outside the town walls for a charter of 12th June 1256 granted them fifteen marks to transfer their church and buildings to a more appropriate site.
