42. THE HOSPITAL OF LORWING

The hospital of Lorwing, between Berkeley and Dursley, was founded for a master and brethren by Maurice of Berkeley I between 1170 and 1189. (fn. 1) It had but a brief existence, for in 1225 Thomas of Berkeley I, the son of the founder, gave the endowment to the prior of Stanley St. Leonard, a cell of Gloucester, on condition that the abbot of Gloucester renounced all claims to the church of Slimbridge. (fn. 2)
