FRIARS PREACHERS

13. THE FRIARS PREACHERS OF HARTLEPOOL

In 1259 Martin of St. Cross, master of Sherburn Hospital, in his will left half a mark to the Friars Preachers of Hartlepool. (fn. 2)

14. THE FRIARS PREACHERS OF JARROW

Edward III, on 16 June, 1329, pardoned the Friars Preachers at Jarrow (sic) and at Newcastle-on-Tyne the respective sums of 12 marks and £6 due for certain victuals sold to them by the late king. (fn. 3)

Footnotes

  • 2. Wills and Invent. (Surt. Soc.), i, 8.
  • 3. Pat. 3 Edw. III, pt. 1, m. 14. This appears to be the only evidence of this house, unless the House of the Friars Preachers of Jarue,' which is mentioned in a document dated c. 1283, be the same. (Hist. MSS. Com. Rep. iv, 444.) Mr. Riley in the report says that this is Jarrow; but whenever 'Jarue' occurs elsewhere it means Yarm in Yorkshire. In the will of William le Vavasour, amongst a number of bequests to religious houses in co. York, occurs one to the 'Friars Preachers of Jar',' presumably Yarm.
