Footnotes

  • 1. A dean named William is said to occ. in the Taxatio of 1291 (Browne Willis, Survey of the Cathedral Church of Bangor (1721) p. 121. and M. L. Clarke, Bangor Cathedral (Cardiff, 1969) p. 109), but this is doubtless a confusion with William who occ. in the earlier taxation of 1254 (see above).
