Last bishop standing?[edit]

The introdutory paragraph had read: "Wulfstan was the only bishop who maintained his office under William the Conqueror after the Norman Conquest." This is incorrect - no bishop was deposed in 1066. William moved against none of the four French bishops appointed by Edward the Confessor, while five English-born bishops died in office, and five English-born bishops were deposed under the Conqueror. William did transform the English episcopate into a Norman institution, but not as quickly as some would state.

French bishops at the Conquest:

  • William, Bishop of London (died 1075)
  • Herman, Bishop of Sherborne (died 1078)
  • Walter, Bishop of Hereford (died 1079)
  • Giso, Bishop of Wells (died 1088)

English bishops who died in office:

  • Wulfwig, Bishop of Dorchester (died 1067)
  • Ealdred, Archbishop of York (died 1069)
  • Leofric, Bishop of Exeter (died 1072)
  • Siward, Bishop of Rochester (died 1075)
  • Wulfstan, Bishop of Worcester (died 1095)

English bishops deposed under William I:

  • Stigand, Archbishop of Canterbury & Bishop of Winchseter (dep. 1070)
  • Æthelmær, Bishop of Elmham (dep. 1070)
  • Leofwin, Bishop of Lichfield (dep. 1070)
  • Æthelric II, Bishop of Selsey (dep. 1070)
  • Æhelwine, Bishop of Durham (dep. 1071 - died in captivity)

  • I know you mean well, but what do you mean by "French bishops"? - I do not think ALL of these so-called "French bishops" were 'French' at the time, but rather 'Norman' and the like. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:12, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

"Notable" dedications...[edit]

PUtthing this here, in case any of them eventually receive their own article ... if they don't have an article, they are hardly "notable". Ealdgyth - Talk 16:47, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
