COVENTRY WHITEFRIARS

DESCRIPTION + /

A Carmelite Priory founded at the unusually late date of 1342 by Sir John Poultney, a wealthy citizen of London who was Lord Mayor of London on five occasions. The church was dedicated to the Virgin Mary. In 1348, Lord Bassett of Drayton bequeathed 300 pounds for the enlargement of the church. In 1506, a bequest of 20 marks was made to rebuild the cloister. The religious house was surrendered to the King at the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1538 by Hugh Burnby and 13 friars.
