The members of the order were also known as the Knights Hospitaller or the Knights of Malta. In 1312 this order merged with / took over the Knights Templar.  The Priory was broken up in the Dissolution of the Monasteries.  In 1877 set up the St John Ambulance Association.

A London Inheritance have two excellent posts on St John's Gate and the Priory of which it was once part.
