Combermere Abbey

near Whitchurch, Shropshire - Viscount Combermere

"Here was originally an Abbey of Benedictine Monks, founded by one Hugh de Malbank in 1133. When the dissolution of the monasteries took place, King Henry the Eighth bestowed the lands on George Cotton, who derived his family name from Coton in the county of Salop, where they had been settled before the Norman Conquest.

The mansion stands on the bank of a lake or mere, from which it derives its name, and occupies the site of the old monastery, of which some remains are still in existence.

Sir Stapleton Cotton, for his eminent military services in Spain and India, was raised to the Peerage as Baron, and afterwards Viscount Combermere. Of this family was also that most truly excellent man, the Rev. Richard Lynch Cotton, successively Fellow, Tutor and Provost of Worcester College, Oxford."
