Craswall / Crasswall
"CRASSWALL, a chapelry in the parish of CLODOCK, hundred of EWYASLACY, county of HEREFORD, 5 miles (S. E.) from Hay, containing 374 inhabitants. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry of Brecon, and diocese of St. David, endowed with £200 royal bounty, and in the patronage of the Earl of Oxford. The chapel is dedicated to St. Mary. About the close of the reign of King John a monastery was founded here, probably by Walton de Lacy, for a prior and ten religious of the order of Grandmont in Normandy: at the seizure of Alien priories it was valued at 40s. per annum, and granted, in the 2nd of Edward IV., to God's House, now Christ's College, Cambridge. There is a fine stone quarry in the neighbourhood." [From Samuel Lewis A Topographical Dictionary of England (1831) ©Mel Lockie]
