Grant, Richard an English prelate, is usually stated to have been dean of London, but this is very improbable. In 1221 he was chancellor of Lincoln, and in 1229 he was consecrated to the see of Canterbury. His episcopate was short, and it seems that he was not as discreet as he should have been, which was so needful for the time. He died August 3, 1231. According to Tanner, the following works were written by Richard Grant: De Fide et Legibus, lib. 1: — De Sacramentis, lib. 1: — De Universo Corporali et Spirituali, lib. 1. See Hook, Lives of the Archbishops of Canterbury, 3:103 sq.
