Chichester, Robert

Chichester, Robert an English prelate of the 12th century, descended from a noble and ancient family in Devonshire, became first dean of Salisbury, then bishop of Exeter in 1128, died in 1150, and was buried on the southside of the altar. He is highly commended by many writers for his piety, though Fuller says it principally consisted in his pilgrimages to Rome, and in building and adorning his cathedral. See Fuller, Worthies of England (ed. Nuttall), 1:403.
