MALTBY HOSPITALLERS PRECEPTORY

DESCRIPTION + /

Supposed House of Knights Templars, founded circa 1135-54, passed to the Knights Hospitallers in 1312, dissolved 1540, according to the Monastica Anglicanum. However, Knowles and Hadcock, (1971) state that the Monastica Anglicanum was incorrect, that the house was founded for the Hospitallers by Ranulf, Earl of Chester (died 1153), and was never a Templar property. It was united with Skirbeck in 1386, and annexed to the estate of the prior of England in 1445. Medieval moats possibly associated with the monastic use of the site are visible as earthworks.
