Missenden Abbey

Date: 1321 | Reference: W/RTB133

The Augustines founded Missenden, in 1133. Nearly two hundred years later - 1321 - the Abbey appended its seal to a land exchange in Great Kimble, also in South Buckinghamshire.

The Abbey seal shows the Virgin Mary holding the infant Jesus, standing under a canopied niche.
