Hallum (or Halom), Robert De an English prelate of the first part of the 15th century, was, of the blood royal of England, says Pits (De Scriptoribus Britaninicis, an. 1410), but in what way is not said. He was educated in Oxford, became chancellor of that university in 1403, afterwards archdeacon of Canterbury, bishop of Salisbury, and June 6, 1411, was made cardinal.
