Biographical / Historical
Wootton Wawen and Mockley manors were granted to the College at the Foundation by King Henry VI, and the College also took control of the rectory and advowson there. Through this arrangement, the College came into possession of the records accumulated through the everyday business of Wootton Wawen priory, a significant institution in its own right, being the daughter house of the Abbey of Conches (or Castillion) in France. Documents kept by the original administration of the priory are listed under KCAR/6/2/181/1.
