A family descendant was William Wilberforce, and the Wilberforce family still provided patronage for the parish living.

The priory lay just to the north of St John's Church; nothing of it remains today.In 1967 the parish Church of St John the Baptist was designated a Grade I listed building and is now recorded in the National Heritage List for England, maintained by Historic England.
