Cardiff
Cardiff Priory was founded when Earl Robert fitz Hamon of Gloucester (d. 1107) granted the church of St Mary with its eight dependent chapels to Tewkesbury Abbey (Gloucestershire) to establish a cell for five monks. The priory may have been abandoned before its formal dissolution in 1403.

Pembroke
St Nicholas's Priory, Pembroke (Monkton), was established as an alien priory of St Martin of Séez by Arnulf of Montgomery, earl of Pembroke. It was later granted to St Albans Abbey. Pembroke was a conventual priory and was thus intended for a full community of brethren rather than one or two monks; it may have comprised a prior and twelve monks but little is now known about the size of the community or recruitment.

St Clears
St Clears was founded as an alien cell of St Martin des Champs, Paris, but the founder is not now known. Since 1920 the Church in Wales has been responsible for appointing the vicars of St Clears.

Chepstow
Chepstow was founded by William fitz Osbern, lord of Chepstow Castle, as an alien priory of Cormeilles (Normandy). It later became an independent priory. Whereas the monks occupied the east end of the church the nave functioned as the parish church and continued to do so after the suppression of the house.

Aberconwy 1
The community originally settled at Rhedenog-fel (Rhedynog Felen), Conwy, south of Caernarfon, but moved c. 1192, and finally relocated in 1283 to Maenan. The monastery flourished under the patronage of the princes of Gwynedd, and abbots of Aberconwy acted as their advisors and emissaries; a number of the rulers requested burial in the abbey. Aberconwy soon became the leading monastery in North Wales.

Llanfaes
The friary was founded by Llywelyn ap Iorwerth in memory of his wife Joan (Siwan) (d. 1237), who was the daughter of King John. What is thought to be her tomb stone now lies in the church of St Mary and St Nicholas, Beaumaris [link:source/1638::see image]. The stall-work at Beaumaris may also have come from the friary. The name 'Llanfaes' is thought to come from 'mes', the Welsh for acorn, and indeed a number of tiles found on the site bear an oak leaf or acorn leaf motif. [link:source/1617::View tiles]

Haverfordwest
The friary was a popular pilgrim site having an image of the Virgin with a miraculous taper.
