124. THE PRIORY OF NORTH HYKEHAM

This priory is only mentioned in the Patent Roll of Edward IV, under the year 1462, when it was granted to the college called 'God's House,' at Cambridge. (fn. 1) Its revenue was then said to be not more than 100s. yearly. It is not at present known to what foreign house it had belonged, nor if there was ever a priory there—that is to say, an actual religious house—at all.
