Houses of Benedictine monks: Priory of Alvecote
Alvecote, which was a member of Seckington, was, with Shuttington, granted by William Burdet, in the year 1159, to the Benedictine monks of Great Malvern, upon condition that they should by Michaelmas send two of their convent to serve the church of Alvecote, and that in the following year they should add two more.
Richard de Malverne, prior of the cell of Alvecote, was admitted to the cure and administration of the church of Shuttington, appropriated to that cell, on the presentation of the prior of Great Malvern, on 19 July, 1341, it being vacant by the death of William de Beaulis, the last prior.

 RELIGIOUS HOUSES: Introduction | British History Online
The Benedictine order had three houses for monks in Warwickshire; by far the most important was the cathedral priory of Coventry, founded in 1043; the abbey of Alcester and the priory of Alvecote were both small.
The nuns of this order had an ancient abbey at Polesworth, and three priories, of which that at Nuneaton, subject to the famous abbey of Fontevrault, was the most prominent.
The Austin canons were represented by five priories, at Kenilworth (subsequently raised to the rank of an abbey), Arbury, Maxstoke, Studley, and Warwick, the last-named having been originally founded for the shortlived order of the Holy Sepulchre.
