Premonstrantes

Or PREMONSTRATENSES, a religious order of regular canons, instituted in 1120 by S. Norbert, and thence called Norbertines. The rule they followed was that of St. Augustine with some slight alterations, and an addition of certain severe laws, whose authority did not long survive their founder. They first came into England A. D. 1146. Their first monastery, called New-house, was erected in Lincolnshire, by Peter de Saulia, and dedicated to St. Martial. In the reign of Edward I. this order had twenty-seven monasteries in England.
