Provenance and Acquisition

Wenlock, Shropshire, Cluniac priory of St Milburga: bears an erased ex-libris inscription with a monastic anathema. Over '[...] de [Wen?]lok' is written 'hugoni de Wolast[on?]'. There are three places called Wollaston not far from Wenlock of which that near Shrewsbury is closest and perhaps the one mentioned here. (MLGB3: evidence from an ex-libris inscription or note of gift to an institution).
