St. Leonard's Priory, Norwich

St. Leonard's Priory, Norwich was a priory in Norfolk, England. It was a dependant cell of Norwich Cathedral before the Reformation. In 1542 it was acquired by the Earl of Surrey and turned into the mansion of Mount Surrey.[1] During Kett's Rebellion, 1549, it was used as to imprison the rebel's 'gentry captives'.[2]
