Nicholas of Meaux, bishop of the Isles (d.p.1226)

Nicholas was an Augustinian canon at Warter, Yorkshire, and transferred to the Cistercian order, as a monk of Meaux Abbey, near Hull, and then as abbot of Furness by 13 December 1211. He was elected by the monks of Furness in 1217 to the bishopric of the Isles after the death of the previous bishop, Nicholas (d.1217). The election was contested, however, and Nicholas was neither consecrated nor present in the see. He remained in exile in England and died in or shortly after 1226.
