Miscellaneous Information
 

Aelfwyn apparently lived as a vowess while renting land from Westminster Abbey. While she had no other institutional affiliation with the abbey, she may have availed herself of religious services there.

It is also possible that Aelfwyn did not live on the land but was a member of a community of religious women elsewhere.
