PREBENDARIES OF RECULVERSLAND (fn. 1)
See lists in Cats. I fo. 92r, II fo. 110/117v.
First preb. in cats., 'Aldredus'. Not otherwise known. Presum. not to be identified
with Aldred the pr., who occ. [1114 × c. 1154] and was prob. not can. (A/23/1718, pd.
in Rep. p. 24a). (fn. 2)
Occ. in cats. between Aldred and Berbund de Waltham, 'Robertus Pictor'. Possibly
to be identified with Robert pistor, who occ. as clk., not can., [c. 1108 × Apr. 1138]
(WD 4 fo. 17/21r-v, pd. in Rep. p. 61a-b). (fn. 3) But more prob. to be identified with
Robert brother of Fulcred, who does not occ. in cats. (see below, p. 95), but occ. as
can. between 1115/16 (A/24/1478 and WD 4 fos. 19/23v-20/24r, pd. in Rep. pp.
61b-62a), and [1138 × Sept. 1152] (WD 4 fo. 44/48r, pd. in Rep. p. 66a). (fn. 4) Robert
'filius Fulcredi' commem. 7 Jan. (Obits. I fo. 10r, II fo. 107r), 8 Jan. (Obit. III fo.
94v). But this identification involves some chronological difficulties (see below,
Berbund de Waltham and William [de Belmeis I]).
Berbund de Waltham
Occ. in cats. between Robert Pictor and William [de Belmeis I], 'Berbundus de
Waltham'. Not otherwise known, unless to be identified with Bermund, who occ. as
can. 1103/4 (WD 4 fo. 40/44r-v, pd. in Rep. p. 65a), and 1111/12 (A/24/521, pd. in
Rep. p. 26a). If this identification is correct, and Robert Pictor is to be identified with
Robert brother of Fulcred, cat. order must be at fault.
William [de Belmeis I (of Beaumais)] (fn. 5)
Occ. in cats. between Berbund de Waltham and Thomas Becket, 'Willelmus
archidiaconus'. Presum. to be identified with William de Belmeis I, archdcn. of
London, prob. from before Jan. 1127 to Sept. 1152 or later, for whom otherwise no
preb. can be assigned. But if Robert Pictor to be identified with Robert brother of
Fulcred, William de Belmeis must have held an unident. preb. before 1138.
