M. Adam of Bockenfield (fn. 1)

First occ. as can. 26 June 1264 (Rot. Gravesend pp. 340, 239), perhaps earlier (Rot. Hund. I 311a, 318a, 325a, 397b). Evidently still alive Jan. 1279, but prob. d. soon after (Northumberland Assize Rolls, [ed. W. Page] (S.S. lxxxviii) pp. 265, 356; cf. Northumbrian Pleas, ed. A. H. Thompson (S.S. clviii) nos. 156, 263, 400-1, 442-3, 485, 536, 540, 549, 571, 586, 610, 636, 639, where he occ. from Hilary 1274 to Michaelmas 1278, but not in 1279 and 1280).

Alan

Occ. as can., and brother of Laurence can. [presum. archdcn. of Bedford, list 13], in L.P. II of c. 1187 (app. 33 no. 54). Perhaps to be identified with M. Alan (below).

M. Alan of Bedford

Occ. as can. and dcn. c. 1200 (R.A.L. IX nos. 2495-6, see app. 47); and prob. to be identified with M. Alan who occ. without title about same time (R.A.L. X nos. 2763-5, see app. 47).

Certainly to be distinguished from Alexander Malebisse and Alexander de Saccaville, with both of whom he occ. c. 23 May 1147 (R.A.L. III no. 921, cf. below). Also certainly a different individual from M. Alexander, can., vice-archdcn., and archdcn. of Stow, unident. preb., with whom he occ. 30 May 1163 (R.A.L. IX no. 2474, cf. list 14 and p. 110).

Alexander Malebisse (fn. 4)

First occ. as can. c. 23 May 1147 (R.A.L. III no. 921). Last occ. ? late 1183 or early 1184 (Danelaw Chs. no. 291, and R.A.L. IX no. 2603, see app. 31; cf. cart. St. Andrew, Northampton, fo. 37v, of ? c. 1180, see app. 30, and B.L., Add. MS. 6118 fos. 330v-331r, of 1179/80). Does not occ. in L.P. II, of c. 1187 (app. 33). Called on one occasion M.

Called magister c. 1200 (R.A.L. IX no. 2495, see app. 47) and 1203/4 (cart. Kirkstead fo. 203r). No later occ., and therefore presum. not to be identified with M. Andrew, papal chapl., who res. church of Shillington (Beds.) before Dec. 1229 (Rot. Welles III 21).

Ansold

Can., d. before c. 1188, commem. 29 Oct. (obit. I 162).

Prob. to be identified with Bartholomew of Southwell who occ. presum. as can. c. 1200 (R.A.L. III no. 674, see app. 47). Preb. not to be identified as Louth, which is usually spelt 'Luda' or 'Lauda', and which was occupied at this time (list 48). Perhaps a scribal error for Stow (St. Mary or Longa, lists 61-2), but clearly written as 'Luwe' in patent roll (P.R.O., C. 66/2 m. 2).

Charles of Beaumont

Presum. to be identified with Drogo de Fravill' who occ. as can. in late 12th cent. (R.A.L. II no. 563) and with Drogo de Frivile who occ. as can. 1189 × 95 (ibid.

Geoffrey the chaplain

Occ. presum. as can. c. 1150 (Danelaw Chs. no. 283, and Reg. Godstow I no. 466, see app. 10). Presum. not to be identified with Geoffrey Dominicus, chapl. of king Henry II, preb. St. Martin (list 50).

Geoffrey the chaplain

Occ. as preb. Sept. 1185 and Sept. 1186 (P.R. 31 Hen. II (P.R.S. xxxiv) p. 125, and 32 Hen. II (P.R.S. xxxvi) pp. 83, 84).

Geoffrey 'abas'

Occ. as can. in L.P. I, of ? c. 1132 (app. 2 no. 3). There are at least two different possibilities for his identity:

(1) It was suggested by H. E. Salter (E.H.R. xxxv (1920) 213) that Geoffrey should be identified with Geoffrey (de Gorron), abbot of St. Albans (1119-46), and that he was succeeded as can. of Lincoln by his successor as abbot, Ralph (Gubion), who occ. in chapter at Lincoln prob. second half of 1147 (below p. 135). (fn. 1) Although it was possible for a head of a Ben. house to hold a preb. in a secular cathedral, (fn. 2) the evidence for Geoffrey and Ralph is far from conclusive, and there is nothing to suggest that later abbots of St. Albans had any claim to a stall in the Lincoln chapter.

(2) Geoffrey might have been a member of the midland family of Abbas (le Abbe, Abbot). A Geoffrey Abbas (? a relative) occ. frequently in the early years of king Henry II in Leics., Warwicks., and elsewhere (see, e.g., P.R. 2-4 Hen. II, ed. J. Hunter (1844) pp. 145, 184, 185; P.R. 5 Hen. II (P.R.S. i) pp. 26, 52, 57; R.B.E. I 18, 21, 25, II 655, 699; cf. V.C.H. Leics. V 52).

Geoffrey de Bocland (fn. 3)

Occ. in connection with Lincoln chapter, but prob. not yet can., 1200, 1201 and 1202 (C.R.R. I 298, II 16; Select Civil Pleas, ed. W. P. Baildon (Selden Soc. iii) I no. 35; B.H.R.S. i (1913) 178-9). Occ. as can. 12 Apr. 1221 (Rot. Welles II 191). Also preb. of Salisbury; dean of St. Martin le Grand, London; archdcn. of Norfolk (Fasti 1066-1300 II 65). Still alive 31 Aug. 1225 (Rot. Litt. Claus. II 80a). D. by 14 Sept. 1225 (Pat. R. 1216-25 p. 550).

Geoffrey de Torpell' (fn. 4)

First occ. as can. ? c. 1163 (R.A.L. IX no. 2500, see app. 22). Last occ. ? late 1183 or early 1184 (Danelaw Chs. no. 291, and R.A.L. IX no. 2603, see app. 31; cf. cart.

Twysden (1652) col. 1831, were evidently drawn from the narrative of this papal document, and must have occurred before 10 Aug. 1180, when Baldwin, abbot of Forde, was cons. bp. of Worcester (cf. Fasti 1066-1300 II 100).

4 For his career, see also Biog. Ox. III 2227, but he was not the rector of Yardley Hastings, for he witnesses, as can., the inst. of a man of the same name (Rot. Welles II 248).
