Nostel Priory

near Pontefract, Yorkshire - Baron St. Oswald


"It would appear that there was a Priory here in Saxon times, as there certainly was in the reign of William the Red. At the dissolution of the monasteries, Nostel fell to the share of Thomas Leigh, one of the Royal Visitors, and was carried into the family of Blount by the marriage of his daughter Catherine with James Blount, Lord Mountjoy, by whom it was sold to Sir Thomas Gargrave, of Kingsley, MP for Yorkshire and Speaker of the House of Commons.

The place was sold by Sir Thomas' grandson, Sir Richard Gargrave, to William Ireland, whose son again conveyed the property to Sir John Wolstenholme for 10,000, from whom it was next purchased by the Winn family. In 1885, Rowland Winn, MP for North Lincolnshire, was raised to the Peerage with the title of Baron St. Oswald."
