Miscellaneous Information
 

Since Almeneches owned land in Poling hundred at a place called Nunnaminstre, it has been suggested that a women's religious house was in existence at that place. Traditionally that house has been associated with Lyminster. It has been argued however that Nonneministre might better be associated with West Preston, a property also owned by by Almeneches. Foot notes that there is equal evidence for Nonneministre being located at West Preston as there is for a Lyminister location (Veiled Women, vol. 2, 213-214).

 
Admin. Notes
 

This entry might better be made a part of the Lyminister entry. I made a seperate entry because Foot listed them seperately.
