Sibton Abbey Cartularies and Charters Part II
A wealth of surviving documents provide an unusally comprehensive overview of this Cistercian house.
Sibton Abbey, founded in 1150, was the only Cistercian house in Suffolk. Its substantial remains include two cartularies and a large number of original charters. Of particular interest is the proportion of later documents runningup to the Reformation, thus providing an unusually comprehensive survey of the house, its properties, tenants and patrons.
