Wallingwells (Wallendwell)

"Wallingwells, four miles north-by-west of Worksop, is the handsome mansion and beautiful park of Sir T.W. White, Bart., and is an extra-parochial district, partly in Yorkshire, containing 390 acres of land, 6 houses, and 36 inhabitants. It was anciently part of the manor and parish of Carlton-in-Lindrick, until Ralph de Cheurolcourt, in the reign of Stephen, granted 'to Almighty God and the Virgin St Mary, a place in his park of Carleton by the wells and streams of the wells, whose name shall be called St Mary of the Park, to make and build there an habitation for holy religion, so free that this place shall not depend on, or belong to any other place.'
The priory that he built here was a Benedictine nunnery, dedicated to the blessed St Virgin Mary, and afterwards called St Marys of Wallondewelles, from its situation amongst wells, fountains and streams. At its dissolution it was valued at £59, and was granted by Queen Elizabeth to Richard Pype and Francis Bowyer, but is now the property and seat of Sir Thomas Wollaston White, who was created a baronet in 1802."
[White's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
