Dominican Friary founded circa 1228 by Maurice de Gaunt, suppressed 1538. The prior, John Hilsey, was appointed provincial of the order in 1534, and as one of the visitors by Henry VIII. Most of the friars fled England before the Dissolution. Its site at Quaker Friars, later occupied by the Cutlers' Hall, the New Hall, Friends Meeting House, and the Bakers' Hall, contains three ranges of buildings retaining some monastic work.
