Ruislip Priory

Ruislip Priory was a priory in Middlesex, England. In 1086 or 1087 the manor of Ruislip was given to Bec Abbey by Ernulf de Hesdin. An administrative centre, it had a prior before 1200. In the early 13th century the administration of Bec's manors (over 20) was shared with Ogbourne Priory in Wiltshire. Ruislip was always a manor-house rather than having conventual buildings. After 1404 the manors were reallocated, Ruislip going to St Nicolas College, Cambridge.[1]
