John of Cheam, bishop of Glasgow (d.1268)

Biography
Watt and Murray, Fasti, 189-90: As archdeacon of Bath, he was appointed bishop of Glasgow on or just before 13 June 1259 and was consecrated at Rome before 28 October of that year. He is found at Tournai on 11 June 1268 and died at Meaux, France. Watt, Graduates, 96: He is found in England, Scotland and France during his episcopate. In 1267 he left for the Curia and died at Meaux, France between 11 June and 13 October 1268, and was buried there. SHR, xxvii (1948), 176-86: John de Cheam came from Surrey, England, and was a graduate, perhaps of Oxford, by 1243 or 1244. By 1252 he was a canon of St Paul's, London and a papal chaplain, and was appointed archdeacon of Bath in 1258, though he may have remained at Rome, where he obtained provision to the see of Glasgow.
