In 1126, when the Premonstratensian order, also known as the White Cannons and Norbatines, received papal approbation by Honorius II, there were nine houses - others were established in quick succession throughout western Europe. The Abbey of Liques [Notre-Dame de la Nativité], for the Premonstratensian Order, was founded by the very generous Robert FitzRanulph, lord of Liques, Alfreton and Norton, in 1131. It had several dozen monks and lay brothers. 

 

*Robert FitzRanulph, many decades later, passed on his titles to his son William, became a priest, and joined the White Canons.

 

Note: By the middle of the 14th century, there were some 1,300 Premonstratensian monasteries for men and 400 for women of throughout Europe. The Premonstratensians were among the religious orders with their own rite. A unique practice of the Premonstratensian Rite is the celebration of a daily votive Mass in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary in each of its abbeys and priories.
