See the Appendix below. 113, 120. 114 The Talbots of Goodrich, earls of Shrewsbury, were another family who held on to the patronage of their monastery, Flanesford Priory in Herefordshire, until the Dissolution. Theirs, however, was one of the few fourteenth-century foundations among the English Augustinian houses, so the ties between the patrons and the religious community were still comparatively recent in the sixteenth century, and this undoubtedly accounted, at least partly, for the continued relationship between the two parties.

The king, as the greatest single patron, was responsible for the establishment of most of the old, venerable, often prosperous, foundations, and of abbeys and priories from all other religious orders. As well as being instrumental in the foundation of religious houses, the crown moreover accumulated the lands and estates, and with them also the monasteries and nunneries, of great families by inheritance, while also being the beneficiary of escheats, and especially forfeitures. 71 The patronage of a powerful royal patron, however, was not always entirely advantageous for a religious house.

It might pertain to a manor, or be situated on lands which were subject to a sale.
