Sion, Nuns of

Sion, Nuns Of.

These nuns belonged to the order of St. Bridget, and had their house at Sion, near Brentford, Middlesex. It was broken up by Henry VIII, reassembled by Mary, and finally dispersed under Elizabeth. Many of the nuns settled in Lisbon. In 1810 the house there was broken up, and many of its members sought a refuge in England, some of whom were living in 1825 in Staffordshire.
