Abbey of Dorchester, England

Resource Toolbox

Founded, 1140, by Alexander, Bishop of Lincoln, for canons of the Order of Saint Augustine (Black Canons). Henry VIII reserved most of the property for a college which was later suppressed; no register of Dorchester Abbey now exists. The church as it stands today was built by the Augustinian Canons.
