CANONS WHOSE PREBENDS CANNOT BE IDENTIFIED

The names of canons of St. Paul's who occur during the period 1066-1300, but who cannot be assigned to particular prebends, are given below in three lists, arranged in alphabetical order of first names.

Possibly to be identified with Ingelric, pr., who occ. [1067] (Regesta 1 nos. 8, 21), and 1069 (ibid. no. 28), who gave land in Essex, where he was tenant before 1066, to St. Martin le Grand, London, before May 1068 (ibid. no. 22); king's chapl. and first dean of St. Martin le Grand (see Round, Commune of London pp. 28-36).
