Annoyingly, I think I know the answer to the first part of the question but not the second.

So I'll say Cistercians and Citeaux...

Yes to Cistercians. Not Citeaux, though. When they founded Fountains Abbey, they didn't have too far to go from their old gaff.

Not Rievaulx, but it was in Yorkshire - a bit more urban, though
