Corpus of preb. in Chichester. First reference to preb. 1291.
Rumboldswhyke held by earl Roger 1086 (DB I 24b, 'Wiche'). Glebe in
Rumboldswhyke (outside Southgate, Chichester) part of preb. (Chart. Chichester
no. 751, undated; cf. Valuation 1535 p. 166, 'Weeke').
Glebe in Treyford part of preb. in 1535, when together with the glebe in
Rumboldswhyke, it was farmed for £2 (Valuation 1535 p. 166) and is not therefore
likely to be the same portion as the large holding of two hides in Treyford held of
earl Roger by a certain Robert in 1086 'in prebenda ecclesie de Cicestre' (DB I
23b; see Acta p. 42, and cf. no. 9, discussed above, Introduction, at nn. 25-7).
Land and tenements in Slinfold (W. Suss.) adjudicated as property of this preb.
16 Sept. 1251 (Close R. 1247-51 p. 557; cf. ibid. p. 499).
Valuation 1291 £6 13s 4d (Taxatio p. 137b).
First preb., occ. 1086, if DB I 23b is to be interpreted as meaning that two hides
in Treyford, held by Robert as preb. of church of Chichester, were prebendal in
the ecclesiastical sense (so understood by Mayr-Harting, Acta p. 42). But Robert
not called canon (for discussion see above, Introduction, at nn. 25-7).
M. William of Kilkenny (fn. 86)
Occ. as this preb. 6 Sept. 1251 and 4 Apr. 1253 (Close R. 1247-51 p. 499;
ibid. 1251-3 p. 462). Also preb. of Dublin, Kilkenny, St Paul's, London, and
Salisbury (1 Fasti 1066-1300 IV 137); archdcn. of Coventry; treas. of Exeter.
Royal chanc. 1250-55, and controller of wardrobe 1249-52 (Tout, Chapters VI
5, 27). Bp. of Ely, el. Sept. 1254, temps. 25 Dec., cons. 15 Aug. 1255 (ibid. II
Next identified preb. is Ralph le Dortorier, who had papal prov. to next vacant
preb. 2 July 1331, and exchanged this preb. for church of Witley (Surrey) by 7
Dec. 1333 (2 Fasti VII 33).
