SCARBOROUGH WHITEFRIARS

DESCRIPTION + /

Carmelite Friary (White Friars) in the priory of St Mary in Scarborough. The friary was founded in 1319 when Edward II granted two houses for them to build an oratory and dwelling place. A licence to build a chapel and bell-tower was granted in 1320-1. The friary was surrendered in 1539 to the Bishop of Dover. Egan says that there were eight friars circa 1500. A find of 20-30 skeletons may mark the site of the cemetery.
