42. THE HOSPITAL OF LORWING
The hospital of Lorwing, between Berkeley
and Dursley, was founded for a master and
brethren by Maurice of Berkeley I between
1170 and 1189. (fn. 1) It had but a brief existence, for in 1225 Thomas of Berkeley I, the
son of the founder, gave the endowment to
the prior of Stanley St. Leonard, a cell of
Gloucester, on condition that the abbot of
Gloucester renounced all claims to the church
of Slimbridge. (fn. 2)
