HE was born near Bristol, and being promoted to the priesthood, took great pleasure in hunting, till being touched by divine grace, he retired near Heselborough in Dorsetshire, where he led a most austere and holy life. He died on the 20th of February in 1154. See Matthew Paris, Ford, Henry of Huntingdon, and Harpsfield, sæc. 12. c. 29.  1
