Prepared by Michael Steer

Syon was a monastery of the Bridgettine Order founded in 1415 that stood until its demolition in the 16th century on the left bank of the River Thames in Middlesex, on or near the site of the present Syon House. Although named in early documents as a Monastery, it is now known somewhat incorrectly as an Abbey, due to its having been presided over by an Abbess. The community, which held extensive lands in Devon was expelled at the Reformation, but returned to Devonshire in 1861. The paper pays particular attention to records of the Abbey's Devonshire possessions. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
