Allerton Mauleverer Priory was a medieval monastic house in North Yorkshire, England. The site is in Allerton Mauleverer with Hopperton Parish in the Harrogate District of North Yorkshire.

Richard Mauleverer founded the priory c. 1100[1] in the Benedictine order and granted them tithes and lands. The site was granted to the Abbey of Marmoutier in Normandy in 1110[2] which made it an alien priory.[3]
