In 1533 Thomas Cromwell took up residence at Canonbury Tower Islington, and from this location organised the dissolution of the monasteries and their transfer into royal ownership. In 1539 Henry VIII gave the Canonbury Manor to Cromwell, presumably as a thank you for the £900,000 a year Henry had made out of the transfers. Cromwell was executed for treason in 1540. http://www.olivercromwell.org/islington.htm

Dissolution of the Monastaries: 1536-1541 carried out under the direction of Henry VIII. These are the ruins of Furness Abbey, dissolved in 1539. Anne was a prime force in influencing the King to dissolve the monastaries in order to destroy papal authority in England. The Dissolution of the Monastaries caused upheaval in England, because the religious tenants were forced onto the streets and into poverty, causing severe economic difficulties for the country.
