From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wallingwells Priory was a house of Benedictine nuns founded in the 1140s by Ralph de Chevrolcourt at Wallingwells near Carlton in Lindrick, Nottinghamshire.

The priory surrendered on 14 December 1539.

A pension of £6 was assigned to the prioress, and the remaining nuns.

At its dissolution, The Priory was valued at £59 and was granted by Queen Elizabeth to Richard Pype and Francis Bowyer; it was later the property of Sir Thomas W. White, a county magistrate.
