In their suffrages, they were to pray for the prosperity of the said Abbot and convent ; for King Edward II. and his Queen Isabella ; for the Bishop, Dean and Chapter of Exeter ; and for the founders and benefactors of Tavistock Abbey.
Sayfa 44 - This abbot had -very little of the spirit of a religious man. He was passionately fond of field sports, was very conceited and foppish in his dress, and a most incurable spendthrift.
