Locations of monastic houses in Northamptonshire

The following is a list of monastic houses in Northamptonshire, England.

In this article alien houses are included, as are smaller establishments such as cells and notable monastic granges (particularly those with resident monks), and also camerae of the military orders of monks (Templars and Hospitallers). The numerous monastic hospitals per se are not included here unless at some time the foundation had, or was purported to have the status or function of an abbey, priory, friary or preceptory/commandery.

The name of the county is given where there is reference to an establishment in another county. Where the county has changed since the foundation's dissolution the modern county is given in parentheses, and in instances where the referenced foundation ceased to exist before the unification of England, the kingdom is given, followed by the modern county in parentheses.

The geographical co-ordinates provided are sourced from the details provided by English Heritage Pastscape [2] and Ordnance Survey publications.

A Monastic Glossary follows the listing, which provides links to articles on the particular monastic orders as well as other terms which appear in the listing.

$ indicates remains limited to earthworks etc.
# indicates no identifiable trace of the monastic foundation remains

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Northampton Austin Friars: Sir John Longville is said to have founded the house 1323, however deeds between 1275 and 1290 refer to an Austin friary in existence at that time
  2. ^ Welford — Victoria County Histories, Northamptonshire, Vol II, p139: "Unfortunately the early records of Sulby are very meagre, and no chartulary or register is extant. We know that the abbey was originally founded in Welford parish, and subsequently moved to Sulby. The confirmation charter of Edward II., already referred to, describes the abbey as formerly of Welford, and now of Sulby" — this is a misinterpretation of the cited Pat. 9 Edw.II pt.2, m.2
