Dale Abby, Depedale or Stanley Park; founded by Radulphus Son of Germundus, on Occasion of an admonishment in a Dream to a Baker in Derby, who thereon left all he had and became a Hermitt in this Desert. Serlo de Grendon Son in law to the said Radulphus, built a Sumptuous Church and Monastery here; and placed in it Canons from the Cell att Calke; and procured them several Privileges from Rome; but being remiss in Divine Offices for fear of being removed, they resigned; and returned from whence they came. Then they had Six Canons from Tupholm who were recalled on the same Account. After this William Grendon, Son of Serlo de Grendon, settled the Town & Park of Stanley, Depedale & Lands in Okebrook upon this House; & nine Canons from Nen: house in Lincolnshire And the Heirs of the said William confirmed the Gifts of their Ancestors to the Canons of Stanley Park; all which with other Possessions were confirmed to them by King Henry ye Third. An: Reg: 19. The Present Owners are the Earls of Stamford & Chesterfield.
