(d. 1381),

Abp. of Canterbury from 1375. He seems to have been reluctant to take proceedings against J. Wycliffe until ordered by the Pope to do so, and then he was not extreme in his measures. In 1380 he became Chancellor and was responsible for the imposition of a poll tax. He was killed by the mob.
