Richard de la More was a medieval clergyman who was Bishop-elect of Winchester from 1280 to 1282.

Life

Richard was subdean of the diocese of Lincoln as well as Archdeacon of Winchester from before 11 September 1280.[1]

Richard was elected to the see of Winchester on 15 November 1280 but resigned in June 1282 before being consecrated.[2] Archbishop John Peckham of Canterbury withheld his confirmation of the election because Richard was a pluralist. Pope Martin IV also quashed the election in 1282.[3]

Richard still held the office of archdeacon until sometime after 19 June 1283, but was only listed as subdean of Lincoln on 3 May 1285. He died sometime after that date. His death was commemorated on 16 June.[1]
