Horsley Priory (Surrey)

Horsley Priory was a Benedictine priory of nuns in Surrey. It is thought to relate to the priory attested at "Horslege" "in the time of Richard I or Queen Joan" in the monastic catalogue attributed to Gervase of Canterbury.[1] Later historians stated that "there is no trace of such thing, unless it may be looked for at Rowbarnes".[2]
