Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1876 Excerpt: ...waste took place at Cleeve is obvious from this circumstance. In 1296 twenty-six monks assembled for the election of an abbot, and soon after the number of monks was increased to twentyeight, by the endowment of Gilbert of Woolavington; yet in 1536, notwithstanding the accession of property to the abbey, the whole number of the monks was but seventeen. In 1184 he lands belonging to the monastery were estimated to be worth 37/. a-year; these had increased in value only 6/. a-year in 1444, whereas at the dissolution the value had gone up to 155i The increase in the value of the Cistercian lauds was probably due, I think, to the impetus given in that century to sheepfarming in this country. The diminished number of inmates of the abbey was a symptom of the decline of the monastic spirit of the country. This made it difficult for the monasteries to keep up the number of their monks, and led them to anticipate in a way the measure of Henry the Eighth. They dissolved their outlying cells, in order to bring up the monks from these establishments to increase the number of the mother-house. For this purpose the abbey of St. Alban's had suppressed several of the cells belonging to it in the north of England, in order to supply the deficiencies of the mother-house. In concluding my desultory remarks, allow me to give expression to my hope that Mr. Walcott will take the opportunity of preserving in some enduring form the valuable information he has collected with reference to Cleeve Abbey. Mr. Loftos Brook, F.S.A., visitor.--At this hour of the meeting my words must be brief, and I will speak as an archaeologist rather than as an architect. We see on the walls the illustrations of a true archaeological work. I do not mean copied from books, as is often the case with re...
