Dodnash, Bentley Parish Priory

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Dodness, Dudenasch, Or Dodeneys

A small Priory in this parish, is said to have been founded by one Wymarus, or by the ancestors of the Earls of Norfolk, to whom the patronage belonged, from the time of King Edward I., until the dissolution.

Thomas de Mowbray, Duke of Norfolk, in the first of Hen. IV., held the advowson of the Priory of Dodnash, of our Sovereign Lord Richard II., late King of England.

By a deed dated at Dodnash, the 23rd of Edward III. (in the possession of Mr. Taylor, author of the Index Monasticus, and to whom we owe this information) , it appears that, in that year, Henry, Prior of the Church of St. Mary, of Dodnash, and the canons there, granted land in fee farm, to Ralph Lamburn, and Margaret his wife; which was sealed by both parties, and witnessed by Hugh de Penna, John Copin, Richd. Curtays, and others.

This Priory was endowed with the tythe of barley, in Fakenham, in Colneis hundred; 320 acres of land, in Hemingston, Coddenham, &c.; 280 acres, in Burstall, Bramford, &c., granted by Roger de Wolveston; a house, and 39 acres of land, in Bergholt; and free
warren, rents, and lands, in fifteen parishes.

It was suppressed in 1524; and granted to Cardinal Wolsey, to endow his college, at Ipswich: upon whose fall, it was re-granted to Thomas Alverde, in 1531.
