Robert de Wickhampton 13 Sept. 1281 (IV/E.5/Archdeacon of Dorset/5; cf. ibid. nos. 2-4, 6, from which it appears that the advowson, with a messuage and 2 acres were given to archdcn. Henry of Braunstone by the prior of Montacute, 1281, and were given by Henry to the cath., to be gr. to archdcnry. in perpetuity; copies of documents in B. 406-11).

Occ. holding archidiaconal chapter, 21 and 24 March 1157/8 (Sar. Chs. pp. 27-8; also IV/E.3/Powerstock/3 and 4). Also dean of Lincoln from before 1145 to after c. May 1173, and had been succeeded by c. 1180 (1 Fasti III 8-9). Last occ. as archdcn. after 1173, ? c. 1180 (Cart. Southwick I pp. 11-12 (I 21-2)). (fn. 1) Nephew of bp.

[? Ranulph son of Robert (fn. 3) preb. unident., list 65
Said in 15th-cent pedigree to have been 'archidiaconus Sarum' and subdcn. when succeeded to the Middleham fee on the honour of Richmond, 1194 x 1206, and to have been disp. by pope in order to inherit and marry (The Genealogist new ser. iii (1886) 32-3; cf. Early Yorks. Chs. V 303 and n. 4). This is possibly true, as his two elder brothers predeceased him without issue (Early Yorks. Chs. V 302). He acted as an itinerant justice 1226 and 1230 and d. by 1252 (ibid. p. 303 and Foss, Judges II 332). If 'Sarum' means Salisbury dioc., he may have occupied this archdcnry. between Richard and Adam.]
