William Bertram, second baron of Mitford, granted land in Northumberland, England, to Osbert Colutarius in the reign of Henry I (1100-1135), to build a monastery. Osbert built Brinkburn Priory then populated it with a priest and brothers from St Mary's Monastery on the Isle. It was originally dedicated to St Peter but from the reign of Henry II, it was sometimes referred to as the Prior and Convent of St Peter and St Paul of Brinkburn.[1]

Parts of the monastic buildings of the Augustinian priory are incorporated into the elegant manor house.[2]
