Shelford Priory


Shelford Priory

Shelford Priory, a house of Augustinian Canons, was founded by Ralph Haunselyn around 1160-80 in Nottinghamshire. He dedicated it to the Virgin Mary.

Shelford was subjected in 1536 to a visitation. They estimated the annual income at £100.

Shortly before the dissolution of the monasteries there were twelve canons in residence.

In June 1536 the Crown granted the priory to Sir Michael Stanhope for 60 years at a rental of £20. Sir Michael Stanhope was the second son of Sir Edward Stanhope of Rampton. Michael Stanhope built Shelford Manor on the site of the priory. Michael was executed in 1552 and the estate passed to his son Sir Thomas Stanhope.
