RICHMOND GREYFRIARS

DESCRIPTION + /

A house of Observant Franciscan Friars was founded at Richmond in either 1499 or 1500. There is no evidence of the friary in any of the buildings occupying the site, although Old Friars House has cellars dating to the early 16th century. The order opposed Henry VIII's second marriage, and preached against it, with the result that the order was suppressed in 1534. Hugh Rich, the warden, was executed at Tyburn in April 1534. The house probably passed to the Austin Friars between 1534-6.
