Event detail for site: Llangua

1414: Ownership

Llangua was granted to the Carthusian house of Sheen.

At the suppression of the alien priories in 1414 Henry V granted Llangua to his newly-founded Carthusian house at Sheen, together with most of Lyre's holdings in England and Wales.
Sheen retained Llangua and the other Welsh properties until its suppression in 1539. At this time the 'manor or priory' of Langwen was assessed at 53s 4d.
