Once owned by Henry I before being passed to the Roman Catholic Congregation of Cluny, whose monks ran it as Cluniac monastery for centuries until the 1500s. Following the dissolution of the monasteries, Henry VIII seized ownership of Horton Priory from the monks, and he later passed it on to his daughter, Queen Elizabeth, before it was given to the Mantell family in 1570.
