Foundation Information
 

This beguine-convent was founded by John and Margaret de Baculo for eight beguines. A gift charter drawn up by Margaret in 1314 states that half of the beguines were to be chosen from John's family, the other half from her own. If suitable beguines from the two families could not be found, the convent could accept other women.
