The Wyldes of the Commandery

Category: Worcester People and Places
At the suppression of the religious houses by King Henry V111, the Commandery came to the Crown, and was granted to Christ Church College, Oxford. Under the College, the Wylde family held it for 250 years. It became their prinicipal seat, and gave their name to the adjacent road, Wyldes Lane. The Wylde family parted with the Commandery in the late 18th century.
