Temple Healey is more usually known as Healey, but the `Temple' part of the name refers to its connection with the Knights Hospitallers or Knights Templar. One of the Lords of Baliol probably gave Healey to the Knights Templar. They owned Healey until the 16th century and the suppression of the monasteries.
