Miscellaneous Information
 

The Domesday book reports that 28 nonnae lived among the poor and prayed for the King and the people (Domesday Book: a survey of the counties of England, vol. 2, fo. 372r). These nonnae may have been dependent on the male community resident in Bury or they may have lived in the almonry. They do not seem to have been half of a double house, however.
