Eustace of Fauconberg was a medieval English Bishop of London from 1221 to 1228 and was also Lord High Treasurer.


Eustace was the son of Walter de Fauconberg of Rise-in-Holderness in the East Riding of the English county of Yorkshire.

Eustace was selected as treasurer in 1217, probably on 4 November, and held the office until his death.[1] He held the prebend of Holbourn in the diocese of London[2] before being elected to the see of London on 26 February 1221 and consecrated on 25 April 1221.[3]

Eustace died between 24 and 31 October 1228.[3]
