Chapter Summary

As Plympton Priory entered the final decades of its existence as an institution, certain issues from the past, such as the desire of parishioners at some of the priory's chapels, continued to demand the attention of the priors and canons. The surviving records suggest that, apart from the financial difficulties of the early 1500s, many aspects of the community's existence continued on as they had for centuries, with new men becoming canons, the priors making presentations to benefices, and the laity entering into land-holding arrangements with the prior. The Miscellaneous Books consist of records of appearances before the court of people who had been granted or sold annuities and/or corrodies6 by the religious houses, or had held offices at or leases from the houses.
