English: Monk Bretton is a village in the metropolitan borough of Barnsley in South Yorkshire, England. It has been a settlement since medieval times and was originally known as just 'Bretton', probably taking its name from the twelfth-century Adam fitz Swain de Bretton, whose family owned much land in the area and who also founded Monk Bretton Priory. The presence of the nearby monastery is believed to be the origin of the 'Monk' part of the present name. In 1444, Sir William de Bretton gave to Thomas Haryngton, esquire, and other trustees, lands and tenements in Monk Bretton, which his father and grandfather had leased to the prior and convent for a term of years.
