|Mother house||Rocester Abbey, Staffordshire|
The priory was occupied by Augustinian Canons Regular, and was dependent upon Rocester Abbey in Staffordshire. The priory is thought to have been founded before 1160, and dissolved between 1517 and 1540, but its exact status is unclear. It is known to have been dependent upon Rocester Abbey, and is often referred to as a cell to Rocester. However, in 1517, there is reference to the "Prior of Lees", indicating, at least by that point, the establishment was a formal priory; meaning the establishment had far greater Independence and a larger monastic population than a cell, which is directly dependent upon its mother church.
