Berkhamsted  -  Jean Yates


The Prior, 1200/20 holds all of a tenement in Berkhamsted, and grants a messuage from it to William Cokein. 1

In the early 1200s there are a number of charters granting land, a tenement and rent from a workshop. An agreement with Ralph Pudifet ‘to collect the whole farm of the canons and pay it to them’ and in 1225 he ‘conveys to the canons all that he has held of  them’.1


The Annals make no mention of land owned by the Priory, but there are references to Earl Richard and Berkhamsted castle. Their ownership of lead mines has perhaps prompted them to note the building of a three story tower roofed in lead.
