Footnotes

195 I am grateful to Professor David Smith for much help with the 13th-cent. priors, in advance of his forthcoming The Heads of Religious Houses, England and Wales, 1216-1377.
196 For his career, see DNB.
197 He occ. as prior in a ch. dated 8 Sept. 1141 (Collectanea Topographica & Genealogica vi (1840) 42, from cart. Hexham, now Leeds, Yorks. Archaeol. Soc. MS 542, fos. 7v-8r); for the possibility that this date is wrong, see Heads of Relig. Houses p. 166 n. 1.
198 For Ailred's death, see Heads of Relig. Houses p. 140.
199 Temp. abp. Geoffrey and Simon of Apulia, chanc. of York (lists 1, 4).
200 Presum., in the light of the evidence on Henry de Merdene, the date of his apparent last occ., 26 July 1271, is wrong (Northumberland and Durham Deeds p. 200 is drawn from a transcript by Roger Dodsworth which may be inaccurate).
