Abstract

This thesis, which deals with the estates and benefactors of two Yorkshire monasteries (Nostell and Bridlington priories), begins with a definition of the meaning of the terms “estates” and “benefactors” in this context, and an explanation of the possible value of a study in this area. The introductory chapter concludes with brief histories of the two priories and discussions of their suitability as subjects for study, and of the surviving documentary sources. The property acquired by Nostell and Bridlington priories throughout their history is considered in Chapters 1 and 2; these chapters are both divided into four chronological sections suggested by the surviving sources, with the material in each section analysed on a geographical basis. The main trends in the acquisition of property are then discussed and compared, in Chapter 3, which also includes a short discussion of some possible reasons for the differences evident in the patterns of the two priories’ acquisitions.
