Occ. in cats. between William Giffard and Thurstan, 'Osbernus [Osbertus, Cat. II] capellanus regis'. Does not occ. as can. Presum. to be identified with Osbern, chapl. of king Henry I, who occ. 3 Sept. 1101 (Regesta 11 nos. 544, 548). Possibly brother of Ranulph Flambard, bp. of Durham (preb. of Totenhall) (cf. Chron.

Richard [?Foliot I] (fn. 4)

Occ. in cats. between Ranulph Patin and Gilbert Banastre, 'Ricardus archiepiscopus'. Certainly not to be identified with Richard of Dover, abp. of Canterbury (1174-84), who was Ben. monk. Presum. an error for 'Ricardus archidiaconus', and could be either Richard Ruffus I, archdcn. of Essex, or Richard Foliot I, archdcn. of Colchester and prob. also of Middlesex. Possibly to be identified with Richard Foliot, who evidently held an otherwise unident. preb. before he succeeded to preb. of Wenlocksbarn, after 1163 (see below p. 86).

Occ. in cats. between Richard [?Foliot] and Alexander de Swereford, 'Ailebertus [Aylebertus, Cat. II] Banastre'.

Prob. transf. to unident. preb. before May 1245.

[?M.] Silvester [?de Everdon]

Occ. in cats. between Alexander de Swereford and William La Feite, 'Silvester archidiaconus Arcestrie'. Possibly an error for 'Cestrie', and to be identified with M.
