Yorkshire in the early sixteenth century contained thirty-five abbeys and priories, nineteen friaries, two major monastic hospitals and twenty-one nunneries in addition to the double house of Watton. Building on foundations laid by J. W. Clay and J. S. Purvis earlier this century, the editors have scoured both national and local archives for relevant information for this edition.  Details of the subsequent careers of the former monks, canons, friars and nuns have been revealed from wills and probate registers.
