Foundation Information
 

The Premonstratensian double house of Heylissem sent its daughters to
Stocquoy, then Seumay. (The evidence for conventual existence of former Heylissem sisters at two other nearby places, Meer and Chapeauvaux, is thin.) All the former sisters of Heylissem went to Langwaden, near Cologne, in the 13th century.
