Chapter Summary

One of the most remarkable features of Plympton Priory was the large proportion of its income-slightly more than a half-which it derived from spiritual sources. Bishops Bartholomew and Henry Marshal of Exeter had fulfilled their duties as patrons by offering assistance to the canons of Plympton in some of these struggles. The relationship between the bishops of Exeter and the canons of Plympton Priory continued to be crucial to the success of the canons' attempts to protect and augment the income from their churches and chapels. By the beginning of the fourteenth century, Plympton Priory had appropriated the churches of St. Kew, Sutton, Tamerton Foliot, Marystow, Maker, Egg Buckland, and Dean Prior. This can be discerned by an examination of the institutions to benefices recorded in the earliest surviving episcopal records for the diocese, those of Bishops Walter Bronescombe, Peter Quinel, and Thomas Bitton.
