Haverholme  Lincolnshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Haverholme like this:

HAVERHOLME, an extra-parochial tract in Sleaford district, Lincoln; forming an island within two arms of the Sleaford river, 3 miles NE by N of Sleaford. Acres, 291. Pop., 15. Houses, 2. A Cistertian priory, a cell to Fountains abbey, was projected here, in 1 137, by Alexander, bishop of Lincoln, but was superseded, in 1 139; by a Gilbertine monastery; and this was given, at the dissolution, to the Clintons. ...

A very ancient mansion, called Haverholme Priory, now stands here; has been modernized into a handsome edifice in the Tudor style; is surrounded with a well wooded park; and is the seat of the Dowager Countess of Winchester.
