Brief Profile:
 

Agnes was a nun at the abbey of Godstow. In 1290, Agnes was abducted by unknown persons who took her from her carriage as she travelled through the neighborhood of Wycombe along with another nun who was a relative of the Countess of Warwicke. The bishop excommunicated her abductors but later excommunicated Agnes herself, claiming that she and another nun had been privy to the plot.
