16. THE CARMELITE FRIARS OF LYME

In November, 1325, a jury of inquest declared that it would not be to the king's prejudice if he licensed William Darre, chaplain, to grant a messuage and 8 acres of land in Lyme to the Carmelite Friars. The land paid 15s. 10¾d. towards the firm of the town and was worth 2s. a year besides. (fn. 1)

The house does not seem to have been founded. (fn. 2)
