Henry Cundall, final abbot of Roche (1531-8)

Henry surrendered the abbey to Henry VIII’s officials in 1538. Henry left the abbey with a respectable pension and retired to Tickhill, where he held a living. In his will of 18 October 1554 he left forty shillings to the poor of Tickhill and twenty shillings to the poor of Crowle; Henry had died by 4 May 1555.(1)
