AVELING PAPERS       Bequest, John Hugh Aveling 1917–1993       Return

In 1960 Fr Hugh Aveling wrote an article in the Ampleforth Journal (vol 60 (1955) pp 3-15), of which this is a reprint. It lists 27 former monks of Byland of which there is some record. Ex-religious were very numerous in Yorkshire—it has been calculated that there were some 438, not counting friars." Also it will never be possible to make full lists of the incumbents of many parishes, partly because of missing records, partly because of the multiplicity of 'peculiar' jurisdictions in the diocese. Again, although there are hundreds of extant clerical wills dating from the sixteenth century, none seem to survive in the case of the great majority of ex-religious.
