    • Cloister hall is very likely the "estate of 1000 acres" described by Edith McCracken. She visited England before she was married in 1895, and "found a James living on the farm". According to the history of Frithelstock Priory, the manor was "about 1000 acres of which the monks farmed 500". The priory was taken from the church in the time of Henry the VIII, and was held by tenant farmers from that time until 1957, when it was sold, along with many other farms in the area by the Clinton Estate.
