In central Wales, the names of but thiry-five monks and eleven conversi of Strata Florida have come down to us. They are practically all Welsh down to Tudor times, when the presence of monks such as Henry Howtone (1515), James Whitney (1515) and Thomas Durham (1539), suggests a wider net being cast for vocations.
