Fulk Basset

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fulk Basset (died 4 May 1271) was archbishop of Dublin, and was the elder brother of John de Sandford who was also archbishop at one time.

He is called Fulk de Sandford and also Fulk Basset owing to his relationship to the Bassets. Having been arch-deacon of Middlesex and treasurer and chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral, London, he was appointed archbishop of Dublin by Pope Alexander IV in 1256. He took some slight part in the government of Ireland under Henry III and died at Finglas on 4 May 1271. His death led to a long struggle between rival candidates for the See, Fromund Le Brun and William de la Corner, which was not resolved until 1279, when they were both passed over in favour of John de Derlington.
