He is called Fulk de Sandford and also Fulk Basset owing to his relationship to the Bassets. Having been arch-deacon of Middlesex and treasurer and chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral, London, he was appointed archbishop of Dublin by Pope Alexander IV in 1256. He took some slight part in the government of Ireland under Henry III and died at Finglas on the 4th of May 1271. His death led to a long striggle between rival candidates for the See, Fromund Le Brun and William de la Corner, which was no resolved until 1279, when they were both passed over in favour of John de Derlington.
