In the mid-13th century Dame Claramunda held and lived in the great tenement on the western shore known as ‘Rounceval’. She owned other properties, including a tenement immediately south of Bull Hall, i.e. in Westgate Street, a plot of land between Rounceval and Martin’s Hall and other property in the town and elsewhere. She may have been sister to Walter of Gloucester as his sons made claim to her properties after her death. She survived two husbands and died in c.1260 without surviving children.
