Dunstable Priory was founded by King Henry I in 1131 and became in 1259 became home to an order Dominican friars, known as black friars because of the colour of their costumes, who ruled over the town. The priors had a gaol, possessed the power of life and death, and sat as judges with the king's justices. They acted with great cruelty, as in the story, causing much unrest in the town.
