The priory was surrendered to the Crown as part of the Dissolution of the Monasteries on 14 December 1539, after which a pension of £6 was assigned to Margaret Goldsmith the last prioress, and of 53s. 4d. each to Anne Roden the sub-prioress and Elizabeth Kirkby and of 40s. each to the six other nuns.
At its dissolution, The Priory was valued at £59 (£30,000 as of 2014),and was granted by Queen Elizabeth I to Richard Pype and Francis Bowyer; it was later the property of the Taylor and White families. A country house known as Wallingwells Hall was built on the site using materials retrieved from the priory.
