Misc Info:
 

Elected as prioress in 1316, although she wasn't a nun. In 1317, she professed her vocation as a nun, and took her role as prioress. In 1323, the bishop appointed guardians of the mismanaged priory, who restrained Joan from wandering. She was removed from her position in 1325. In 1326, she was warned, on pain of excommunication, to obey the new prioress.
