Convent of Nuneaton Priory
Sir Robert of Meulan, 2nd Earl of Leicester, died 5 April 1168.
His widow, Amice, is said to have entered the convent of Nuneaton Priory. She died in August, year uncertain.
Nuneaton Priory was one of many subordinate to the celebrated abbey of Fontevrault, Anjou, founded in 1100 for both monks and nuns of the Benedictine order. Originally the Priory was located in at Kintbury in Berkshire in 1153, where it was founded by Robert earl of Leicester and Gervase Paynel, who was his son-in-law, having married the earl's daughter Isabel, widow of Simon de Senliz. The order moved to Eaton in Warwickshire by 1155, called subsequently "Nuneaton". The founder's wife, Amice, was one of many distinguished ladies in the Priory, and their daughter Hawise was there for her education prior to her marriage to the earl of Gloucester.
What is the evidence for calling Amice "de Uta" on many websites?
