Fulborn, Stephen De

Fulborn, Stephen De an English prelate of the 13th century, was born at Fulborn, Cambridgeshire. In 1274 he became bishop of Waterford and lord treasurer of Ireland; hence he was preferred archbishop of Tuam, and was also chief- justice of Ireland. He is reported to have given to the Church of Glastonbury, England, "indulgences of an hundred days," probably, as Fuller suggests, so many days to all in his province who went on a pilgrimage to that place — "an over-papal act for a plain archbishop." He died in 1288, and was buried in Trinity Church, Dublin. See Fuller, Worthies of England (ed. Nuttall), 1:228.
