Locations, locations

The paper I presented at the Military Orders conference early in September considered the Templars’ property in Herefordshire, South Wales, Cornwall and Cumbria. I also compared the information recorded by King Edward II’s sheriffs for the Herefordshire estates with the information from the Worcestershire estates. But where were the Worcestershire estates? The records from 1308–10 name them as Hollecrombe, Lawarne and Broghton.

Some intensive work on Google suggested that these are now Hillcrombe (near Upton upon Severn), Temple Laugherne (near Worcester) and Temple Broughton. If anyone has any better ideas, please let me know.

I'm an academic researching on the Knights Templar and Knights Hospitaller, the crusades, religion and the role of women in warfare and in religious life in medieval Europe. This blog will feature developments in my research as it progresses.
