(fn. 2) Last occ., as Robert archdcn. of Surrey, 27 March 1178 (Records of Merton Priory, ed. A. Heales (1898) app. p. xvii), but perhaps to be identified with R-archdcn. of Surrey who occ.

1 ?Inglesham, Wilts.
2 Temp. Turstin, sheriff of Hants; cf. H. E. Salter, Facsimiles of Early Oxford Charters (Oxford, 1929) no. 18 and note.
3 For the date of this document, see H. M. Colvin, White Canons in England (Oxford, 1951) p. 89. If this identification is correct, Robert did not res. the archdcnry. of Surrey after 1178, as suggested by C. N. L. Brooke (Misc. D. M. Stenton pp. 51-2). His appearances without title after 1178 may not be significant; he also occ. without title during his period of office before 1178 (e.g. Reg. Roff. pp. 350, 410-11).
4 Cf. Carte Nativorum, ed. C. N. L. Brooke and M. M. Postan (Northants Record Soc. xx) p. 169, for his connection with Benedict, abbot of Peterborough.
