Launceston Priory

Launceston Priory was a priory at Newport, Launceston, Cornwall, England, UK.

The priory was founded 1127 by William Warelwast, Bishop of Exeter as a house of Augustinian canons. Its charter replaced an earlier foundation of secular canons at St Stephens, a collegiate church dating back to c. 830. In c. 1155 the priory completed a move from its original site near the castle to a new site nearer the centre of Launceston, in the Newtown area, in the valley of the River Kensey.
