In the early 16th century Yorkshire contained 35 abbeys and priories, 19 friaries, two major monastic hospitals and 21 nunneries in addition to the double house of Watton. By c.1530, just before the Dissolution, these foundations accommodated well over a thousand monks, canons, friars and nuns, some of whose subsequent careers are detailed in this volume. This has been possible using information gathered from government and church records, including wills and probate registers.
