Event detail for site: St Tudwal\'s Island

c. 1409: Foundation

The origins of the priory are uncertain.

There was a community of Augustinian Canons here seemingly
by the late thirteenth century although they may not have arrived until the early fifteenth century. The first reference to an Augustinian community is in 1410.
The site was perhaps previously occupied by an early medieval community.
