History, landscape & families of Grosmont Priory from 1536

New discoveries by Dr Alistair Laurence

The talk lasting about 60 minutes centres on Grosmont Priory, its surrounds and uses before King Henry VIII decided to close the majority of religious houses in England, at the dissolution in the 16th century.

After the dissolution the land was subsequently leased by the Crown to various persons, including the Cholmleys, some of their descendants, such as the Saunders, followed by the Kelds, the Agars, Wilkinsons, Yeomans & Bagnalls and considers their respective impact on the Grosmont Priory environment.
