  Houses of Premonstratensian canons: The abbey of West Dereham | British History Online
Citation: 'Houses of Premonstratensian canons: The abbey of West Dereham', A History of the County of Norfolk: Volume 2 (1906), pp.
In May, 1325, the county escheator was ordered not to further intermeddle with this abbey, which he had taken into the king's hands on the death of the last abbot on the plea that the lands that belonged to Aymer de Valence, late earl of Pembroke, were in the king's hands.
In 1344, Mary de Sancto Paulo, countess of Pembroke, obtained the sanction of Clement III, on behalf of the Premonstratensian abbot of West Dereham, for faculty to confer the office of notary public on six persons to be nominated by the countess.

 Premonstratensian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Norbertines, also known as the Premonstratensians and in England, as the White Canons (from the color of their habit), are a Christian religious order of Augustinian canons founded at Prémontré near Laon in 1120 by Saint Norbert, afterwards archbishop of Magdeburg.
Norbert was a friend of Saint Bernard of Clairvaux and he was largely influenced by the Cistercian ideals as to both the manner of life and the government of his order.
But as the Premonstratensians were not monks but canons regular, their work was preaching and the exercise of the pastoral office, and they served a large number of parishes incorporated in their monasteries.

A manuscript of the ordinarius, preserved at Munich, dates from the end of the 12th or the beginning of the 13th century, as the feast of St. Laurence (10 August) ranks as a double,[3-80] and the reforms of Innocent III (1198-1216) are ignored.
A similarity exists between the Premonstratensian and Dominican calendars, but it is uncertain whether this was due to their mutual approximation to the Gregorian books or whether the Black friars made use of the list of the White canons by way of comparison.

 AbbeyDescDOE
The Abbey of St Mary and St John the Evangelist at Titchfield was founded in 1232 by Peter des Roches, Bishop of Winchester, for Premonstratensian canons.
Shortly afterwards the Premonstratensian abbots met together; they compiled a book of customs and took much from the uses and statutes of the Cistercians, who had recently been established as a reformed order of Benedictine discipline.
Abbot Maxey was succeeded at Titchfield by John Sympson, late abbot of the Premonstratensian house of Durford, just across the Hampshire-Sussex border, which had fallen under the Act of 1536 for the suppression of monasteries with a net income less than ~200.

The Premonstratensian Order — also called the Norbertine- was an Order of Augustinian canons founded in 1120 by St. Norbert Archbishop of Magdeburg, and its first monastery was of great strictness, and the monks followed a life of deep austerity.
The strength of the Premonstratensians at present lies in Belgium where the great Abbey of Tongerloo is still in the hands of the Order.
In 1246 a very precious relic consisting of a fragment of the True Cross and a sum of 600 Besants was bequeathed to the Abbey by Sir Roger the Norman, on condition that the monks should ever say masses for the soul of the testator and his wife Alix.

 Abbey of Strahov
A Premonstratensian abbey at Prague, Bohemia, founded in 1149 by Bishop Henry Zdik of Olmütz, Bishop John of Prague, and Prince Ladislaus II.
A colony of monks from Steinfeld near Cologne, was brought here, and Gero, a canon of Cologne, became its first abbot.
The main cause of anger of the fanatics against the abbey was that John Zelezny, Bishop of Leitomischl, a Premonstratensian, was one of the accusers of Hus at the Council of Constance.

 Shap Abbey
Shap Abbey was founded by a group of Premonstratensian Canons, who settled in the area in 1190.
The Premonstratensian Order began in northern France and was essentially a middle way between the strict and isolated Order of the Cistercians and the more community oriented Augustinians.
During the early years, the Premonstratensian building style was based on the Cistercian tradition of austerity and simplicity; the original abbey church bears witness to these ideals.

 Slovakia - ICOMOS World Report on Monuments and Sites in Danger 2001: Heritage @ Risk
The former Monastery of the Premonstratensian Order in Šahy is one of the oldest places in the history of the ancient region of Hont.
Dating from the 13th century, it is represented today by both the Church of Assumption and the so-called ‘corn-loft’ - the other parts of the fortified complex have been destroyed during the last centuries, as a result of years of misusing the former monastery for other purposes.
It was created in the 17th-18th century, probably by Jesuits, and during the mediaeval period was part of the inner yard of the Premonstratensians’ monastery.

 History of Canonsbrook Abbey
Records are very sparse, but it appears it was built between the years 1150-1170 by a monastic order called the Premonstratensian’s who first settled in Essex at Great Parndon, the name of the district in which the club now resides in.
However, by the later half of the 12th Century canons were often staffing these parishes and undertaking the care of souls.
In the year 1180 the canons migrated from Great Parndon to Maldon; this seems to have been considered as a new foundation, for the patronage of the abbey remained from henceforward until the dissolution in 1536.

DRYBURGH was the last of the Border Abbeys to be founded, and the only one not created under the instructions of David I. It was the Constable of Scotland, Hugh de Moreville, who invited the Premonstratensian Order to build at Dryburgh.
Premonstratensians were known as White Canons, because they were regular canons - priests rather than monks - who wore white.
They focused on a cloistered and contemplative life - hence the location of Dryburgh Abbey, a secluded loop in the River Tweed, far from the madding crowd.

 Egglestone Abbey and a walk in Teesdale
Founded in the 1190s, the Premonstratensian abbey of St. John the Baptist at Egglestone was always in difficult financial straits, almost losing its abbey status through being poor enough to be a priory.
Known as "white monks" the Canons undertook preaching and pastoral work in the region but followed the Cistercian rule of austerity.

According to the tradition, the foundation date was 1192, and the site of the building, at 620 metres above sea level in the upper valley of the Lierbach near Oppenau, was determined by a donkey which threw off a sack of money at this remote and inaccessible spot.
In the same year a wooden chapel was built, which was gradually extended to be a Premonstratensian monastery.
In 1657 it was raised to the status of "abbey" by the general chapter of the Premonstratensian Order.

 H-Net Review: Martha G. Newman on Women as Scribes: Book Production and Monastic Reform in Twelfth-Century Bavaria
Despite Premonstratensian statutes designed to separate male and female communities, Schäftlarn began to accept both professed and lay sisters by mid-century; it continued to accept new women even after the 1198 papal decree prohibiting any new admission of women to Premonstratensian houses.
As in other Premonstratensian female houses, however, the lives of the women of Schäftlarn were dominated by labor in service of the men; for some of them, however, this labor consisted of working with the canons in the production of books.
If we relied only on statutes, rules, and customaries, for example, we would have no idea that a Premonstratensian lay sister could work alongside the male canons; we might also assume that the strict enclosure of the Benedictine nuns precluded their intellectual collaboration with the monks.

Monasteries were a dominant feature of the landscape of medieval England, but although much critical attention has been devoted to them, comparatively little has been written on the thirty abbeys of the English Premonstratensians (`White Canons'), a gap which this book, the first detailed study since the early 1950s, seeks to fill.
It thus offers evidence for the vitality of the English Premonstratensians, as well as re-evaluating their monastic observances.
