Footnotes

1 This list is constructed from the materials supplied in Le Neve's Fasti (edit. T. Duffus Hardy). The date inserted in the column headed Consecration is the date of consecration to the See of London: where the date of Accession only is given, the person promoted was translated from some other Bishopric.
2 Anselm, Abbot of Bury, was elected and enthroned in S. Paul's in 1137, but was never consecrated: the see remained vacant seven years; his election was annulled by the Court of Rome.
3 Richard Talbot, Dean of S. Paul's, was elected Bishop 1262, but died before he received consecration.
4 Fulk Lovel was elected Bishop, but declined consecration, 1280.
5 Edmund Bonner was deprived 1 Oct. 1549; restored 5 Sept. 1553; again displaced 30 May 1559.
