Taken from its monastic residents by Henry VIII and given to John Russell, 1st Earl of Bedford in 1547, it grew to become the seat of the Russell Household and the Dukes of Bedford. The Abbey was largely rebuilt beginning in 1744 by the architects Henry Flitcroft and Henry Holland for the 4th Duke.
