Their mother house at Cambrai also returned at the French Revolution and is now Stanbrook Abbey in Worcester. Among the manuscripts they lost at the French Revolution was likely Julian's autograph Showing of Love manuscript, written in the Norwich dialect, from which the Sloane manuscripts are copied.
