Margaret Cailly, runaway nun, 1389

In 1389 Archbishop Courtenay found Margaret Cailly, who had entered St Radegund's, Cambridge as a nun, living a dissolute life in secular habit in the Diocese of Lincoln. She was returned in disgrace to St Radegund, where she seems to have been kept, at least for a period, in close confinement.[1][2]
