The Carmelites were among the last of the mendicants to arrive in Wales, and, along with the Austin friars, the least represented of them all, establishing only one single friary, at Denbigh, in the 1270s. The Austin friars, too, founded only one religious house in Wales: Newport, which originated in the 1370s, under the patronage of the earl of Stafford. The friars were an urban phenomenon, but although medieval Wales was not a place of many cities, the friars soon became a familiar part of the country’s religious fabric.

Research over recent years has demonstrated that to see a clear divide between those who endowed and indeed those who entered abbeys and priories that were primarily affiliated with either Welsh or Norman patrons can be misleading. The Poll Tax returns of the 1380s show that some houses had personnel with English and Welsh names – the monastic population showed an ethnic mix – and Anglo-Norman houses in the south, such as Margam and Neath, acquired lands from Welsh as well as Anglo-Norman benefactors.

In 1484 headship of the abbey was disputed between Abbot David Winchcombe, who went on to be abbot of Cymer and then of Strata Florida, and Abbot David Lloyd, who seems to have had the support of King Richard III and who was successful in taking the post at Maenan. Lloyd may have been the abbot who was killed falling from his horse in 1490; certainly he was the subject of poems by two of the Welsh bards, who praised his learning and his generosity. Another man named Dafydd, Dafydd ab Owain, previously abbot of Strata Marcella, became bishop of St Asaph in 1503 and was allowed to hold his bishopric with the abbacy of Aberconwy.
