(d. 1190).

Archbishop of Canterbury. A native of Exeter, Baldwin entered the Cistercian monastery at Ford, Devon (c.1170), becoming abbot and then bishop of Worcester (1180). He was Henry II's own choice as archbishop in 1184. He took the cross (1188), preaching the crusade in Wales with ‘the energy and style of Bernard of Clairvaux’. After attending Henry on his death‐bed and crowning Richard I, he set out for the East. Heading the English advance guard, he arrived at the siege of Acre (October 1190), but died soon after.
