The origin and development of the prebendal system at St. Paul's, which seems to
have been fully established with the thirty prebends before c. 1100, is examined by
Miss M. Gibbs, Early Charters of the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, London (Camden
3rd ser. lviii, 1939) pp. xxi-xxviii, and by C. N. L. Brooke, 'The composition of the
chapter of St. Paul's, 1086-1163', Camb. Hist. Jnl. x (1951) 111-32. Professor Brooke
establishes the general reliability of two ancient prebendal catalogues, which provide
the framework of the lists given below. (fn. 2) For the names of the prebends, see Mrs.
Horn's note in Fasti 1300-1541 v (1963) 72.
