Title monarc.archive.04410
Creator Ann Hignell
Description Thirteen numbered injunctions, and several further which are unnumbered, addressed to the prior and convent by Robert Sherborn, bishop of Chichester, following his ordinary visitation on 7 July 1518. The injunctions are wideranging but rather general, relating to such matters as the need to have a full complement of monks in the house, to appoint a novice-master, to remain within the priory�s precinct, to keep the dormitory and individual cells clean and orderly, and to keep the common seal under at least three keys. Specific directions are: for annual accounts of receipts and expenses and inventories of moveables and immoveables to be entered each year in a parchment book (laid open before the brethren and the bishop, every year); for the prior not to engage in archery in public; for women to be employed to wash linen, milk the cows and churn butter, etc.; and for these injunctions to be written in some large book to remain in the Chapter-house and to be read once a month in chapter \(\-\-\) in English, if necessary.
