After the dissolution of the monasticism  in 1539, wanted by Henry VIII,  the Abbey buildings and 500 acres of land were sold  to Sir Richard Gresham, a wealthy trader. The property was then sold to Stephen Proctor, who ordered to build Fountains Hall, a distinguished Elizabethan residence, between 1598 and 1604. John Aislabie inherited the property Studley Royal in 1693, and after his expulsion from the Parliament as Chancellor of the Exchequer in the business, “South Sea Bubble,” retired to his property to create one of the most beautiful water gardens in Britain. His work was completed by his son William, who also purchased the ruins of the Abbey in 1721.
