"Since 2008, the 'Who were the nuns?' project team has been investigating the membership of the English convents in exile, from the opening of the first institution in Brussels to the nuns' return to England as a result of the French Revolution and associated violence". The key aim of the "identify those women who entered the English convents from the foundation of the first new house in Brussels in 1598 until 1800". The database compiles covent sources from England, Belgium, France, and Maryland USA to create biographical records of these nuns. The database presents details "of the membership, family trees, edited documents, maps and analysis of the nuns' experiences".
