Bishop of Ely. Born at Levens in Westmorland, he entered the abbey of Shap becoming the abbot before 1458. He was appointed commissary-general of the English abbeys despite some controversy which lasted until 1466. He then retained the position for over forty years. He was appointed bishop of St Asaph in North Wales in 1472. Of a Yorkist bent, he served Edward IV and was closely aligned with Richard III, serving on the king's council and accompanying Richard during negotiations with the Scots in 1484. After the fall of the Plantagenet dynasty, he was implicated in the Lambert Simnel revolt of 1487. Avoiding charges, he apparently ended his association with the Yorkists from that time. He was appointed Bishop at Ely in 1501 and served until his death four years later.
