Monastic Wales.

Display Order:

Bonhommes Canons

also known as: Boni Homines

According to Knowles and Hadcock (Medieval Religious Houses, p. 203) this order was peculiar to England / Wales and should be differentiated from Continental orders of the same name. Effectively, these men were regular priests who followed the Rule of St Augustine and thus followed a similar routine to regular canons. However, their heads were called rectors rather than priors and their houses were generally known as colleges.
