5 Family of Mondeville, dept. Calvados, arr. and cant. Caen; see Clay, Amundeville p. 110.
1 Temp. bp. Robert de Chesney (list 1), and before Hubert de Sancto Claro was succeeded byWilliam de Lanvalei, before Sept. 1156 (see H.K.F. III 287-8); the charter refers to a charter of kingHenry, presum. Henry I, and therefore prob. belongs before Dec. 1154; perhaps it is to be associatedwith a similar charter of 1152, Cart. Colec. I 161 and cf. ibid. p. 155.
2 He occ. as can., not called treas., prob. Nov. 1160 × 1166 (cart. Walden fo. 43v, see app. 24).
3 In Cart. Boarstall no. 5, of c. 1188 (see app. 35), John treas. occ., but in MS. of this cart., atAylesbury, Bucks. R.O., the name is clearly Joc', for Jocelino (not for Johanne).

5 Temp. Geoffrey [de Deeping] precentor (list 3), and perhaps during vacancy in see (list 1).
6 ?Bury St. Edmunds, Suff.
1 Temp. M. Roger de Weseham, dean (list 2).
2 Le Neve-Hardy II 87 gives Nicholas de Wadingham as treas. c. 1246, but this is evidently anerror: Wadingham was chanc. at this time (list 4).
3 Prob. Sherwood, Notts.; 'ex parte Borealium' (Munimenta Academica, ed. H. Anstey (R.S. 1) I 22).
4 M. R- treas. occ. 24 Aug. 1258 (C.P.R. 1247-58 p. 651), but text should prob. read: M. R-[dean, M. W-] treas.
5 Possibly Battle, Sussex; but there was a family called Batail in Lincoln in the early and mid13th cent. (R.A.L. IX nos. 2429-34).
6 Temp. William de Newport, rector of Cadeby (see Rot. Gravesend p. 43).
