Admin. Notes
 

Not sure why this is being included, or whether this should refer to the Hospital or the college. The dates refer to the Hospital which seems to have only housed male secular canons. According to Dugdale, the college was founded in 996 by the widow Wulfruna as a monastery, whether it was a male or female foundation is unclear. However by the time of the conquest the foundation had been passed to a secular canons and was then given to the priory and convent of Worcester by William Rufus. Some sources list Wulfruna's foundation at Tamworth. EMS 07/08
