Miscellaneous Information
 

In Historia regum, Simeon of Durham mentions an eighth century religious community at Corbridge. The only reference that religious women resided at this community comes from a poem by Warner of Rouen about a man who is sold to the community as a slave (). The poem is satire and while arguments have been made for its setting as Corbridge, Foot offers evidence that places those arguments in doubt (Veiled Women, vol. 2, 68-70).
