MONUMENT NO. 1393685

DESCRIPTION + /

In 1315 Edward II acquired the manor of Gravesend following the death of Joan de Crammaville. Edward spent lavishly on the house, apparently rebuilding the old manor house. The building works were completed by 1368, and a new wharf was begun in 1369. By his will of 1376, the manor was made over to the Priory of St Mary Graces by the Tower of London, who promptly demolished the royal residence to make a dormitory, refectory, cloister and other buildings.
