The foundations of the present church were laid by Abbot Serlo (10721104). Walter Frocester (d. 1412) the abbey's historian, became its first mitred abbot in 1381. Until 1541, Gloucester lay in the see of Worcester, but the separate see was then constituted, with John Wakeman, last abbot of Tewkesbury, as its first bishop. Date: circa 1900

Henry VIII demands one hundred pounds from the Abbot Featured Print

Henry VIII demands one hundred pounds from the Abbot

King Henry VIII pictured with the Abbott of Reading Abbey who had been imprisoned in the Tower of London. Upon hunting in Windsor Forest Henry had disguised himself as a Royal Guard as a means to trick the abbot. He sat with the abbot whilst he ate his meal of sirloin steak. The Abbott mistakenly mocked the king's own greedy tendencies, claiming he "would give a 100 pound that I could eat as lustily" as the king. The abbot soon was held under arrest in the tower whereby the king later visited to claim his one hundred pounds. Date: c. 1540
